For some reason looking at the clear light on a white car makes me think of an albino....

Personally, I think they look better on darker colour cars, but on white the red tail lights provide some contrast to the white, and it looks good.

They look good on the fairmont, as the chrome piece adds some contrast to the rear end, but I personally think the stock lights would look better.

On a darker car, the clear lights would look better, as it is a more even contrast, light to dark, however on a white car, I am not so sure....

No offence to FordFreak, I just think they look a bit funny on white cars. I did a photo chop with them on to mine, (white) and it made the pic look like it was in black n white.
hmmm, meh, they would look nice if they had clear plastic over coloured globes with little coloured surrounds. If anyone know what im on about? lol

Are all the EF/EL altezza styles you see on ebay the same design?
One manufacturer only? they look different for every seller but most likely just the type of shots taken in the ad?
