Question Altezza or tail cover options for 2003-05 Accord Coupe?

What are my altezza tail options for 2003-2005 an Accord coupe? I have only seen 1 set so far & did not like it.

Does anyone make any tail covers that can be painted body color, but of course still allow enough of lights to be seen so you don't get killed?

Why not do the 06 conversion. It looks the best IMO, love the LEDs

how would you go about doing a 06 conversion? arent the tail lights for the 06 shaped differently than the 05? or would the conversion just be the lighting, not the housing?
(you got my interest on that idea- likin it)

Stock tail lights look the best, a decent alternative to stock is the "blacked out" tail lights with black film. NEVER go with the altezzas.

There's a lot of threads on this right now, you need the t/lights and the trunklid at a minumum, better with the bumper also. You could get away with the t/lights only and a good custom bodyman for the trunk and bumper.

I have a set of euros that I hate (I'm not going to lie). I bought my car used and they came with it. If you want to work out some kind of trade, you can email me at [email protected]

The tails that I liked the best were on ebay. They look a lot like the 06 tails. They have the LEDs also.

Unfortunately anything worth doing to a car (thats going to get props) is going to take some money and patience. Even taillights or headlights (96 to 00 civic headlights.. RSX upgrade) sometimes take money and patience. Any thing done to a car with haste, usually is going to get hated on. Just my opion. People want to change their t/lights quick and grab a set off ebay cheap... part don't fit so good, looks like ass... people here start to clown...

I've been modifying cars for years. I'm not a 16 yr old newbie kid.

Thanks for the post.

Well i'm sorry then, that you have not developed a better taste in all your "years" of modding cars. I was only trying to give some advice, because you seem to ask for a lot of it. Don't get defensive when someone trys to hold your hand down the proper path so your car won't look like as$.
