Does anyone with altezza lights on an EB or ED have any photos with the brake (or just plain tail) lights working? I have no concept of what they would look like when being operated.

I know a lot of people here have nothing good to say about the altezza lights, but I'm not sold on their tackiness yet and would like an idea how they look.


Cheers.

I never liked the red stripe in them, but they look good on that one, froudey.

Got any with the red bulbs shining? :)

Or even better stick with the stock taillights because they look about 10,000x better

Actually, you can't legally cover up the red stripe as it is the ADR required reflector.

I am not a fan of the altezza style lights.

What's the red stripe if he has other defectable mods? =P

I am abit half and half about the clear lights some cars they look really good some don't all depends on the colour of the car.

You just need refectors on the back. So stick on a couple some where if you want to change the strip. Any spare parts place sells stick on reflectors.

Problem solved.
