Just installed some Altezza fronts, check out my gallery to see what they look like.

I love em, better than the stocks I had on. This is the third set of lights I have had. I went from the AUXR fronts, to the standards (to fit the C2R front bar), now the Altezza's.

Also, I just painted my Hawk wing plates silver to match the rear bar and sides.

What do you think?

Thanks guys,

I'm still not sure if I am happy with the over all look at the moment, something is bugging me about the looks and I cant figure out what it is. Sure its nice, unique, but it is still experimental. It's missing something, or I have over done it somewhere?

Next on the cards is a darker window tint and an AU Boss Bonnet from AWC. Lets see how it all ties in. I may have to go back to the XR front at some stage.

I like your car, but I've always thought the C2R kit is a more sleek kit and looks better with a normal AU spoiler.

The Hawk/TS50 goes more with a TS50 kit as thats a tankier kit. Maybe its just me.. but thats what i rekon looks wrong about your car.

Overall a good package. If you were up to that stage where you want something 'different' and you have the money then we could be really picky. Lowering it an inch max will change the whole stance a fair bit.

$320 (includes postage)

Very easy to install. They already come with the globes inserted. No need to use the old ones. Take out the old unit and put in the new one.

Do you have a front on shot of the car shrug or with the blinkers/lights on? They loook ok on your car.

You can get them for around $280 on ebay that includes postage.

I was thinking of getting some but not really sure the design seems sort of weird. Iv got the tail lights but just not surea bout the front lights :? The parker also seems like its in a funny spot, be nice if they came in shadow chrome.

They need to make them with projector beams like the monaro lights then id definatly get some. Its a wonder why other companies havent released any other sorts of headlights for the au's yet,.

I seen them once in real life on an au seem a bit bulky.

Also be good if they didnt include the globes might be a bit cheaper.

I'm with tomcolahan, Altezza lights should be left to the ricers and their Bitsamissin Prancers, they look s**t on a Falcon.
