I like it on your car, but you need a spoiler. And yes you have to seal it.

go along with what everyone says, and seal it i didn't at first. but after 3 straight days of rain alot of water had collected in the left housing and on the first sunny day they fogged up bad!

heres some pics of what my poor workmanship looked like.the first pic you can see the "runoff" cause i installed it before it was full cured. in the last pic you can see i drilled a hole to let the water drain faster (there was lots of it)

who, me? i got them at www.modacar.com only cause they had them in stock and i was able to pick them up in person. i paid about $235 (USD) out the door. you can prolly find them for cheaper if you search the net a lil.
but FYI APC makes them, www.4apc.net
but you can also get them at www.modacar.com , www.importparts.com as well as several other web sites

I've always hated Altezza/Euro taillights, but damn, ever since I first saw the CF ones for our cars, I've grown to like them more and more. Looks very good, especially on a red or black car. One complaint though, the fake CF in the lens doesn't look too real. Maybe I'm expecting too much.

aZnRYcEbOi : my car is 97 eucalyptus green peral, just waxed my car this morning...hehe

cementups, I will get a full bodykit soon, along with a spoiler, thanks for ur suggestion...

thanks a lot BlueShadow, now I know how to seal it, I'll probably do it tonight..


LVSBB6, I got it for $184+tax from my friend's store www.advanceimports.com . I had ordered one from Modacar.com, but the waiting list was too long, I waited one month, then I outta there. then I asked my friend if he can get one, I waited another 1 month finally I got it yesterday....


These carbon fiber are really really very hard to find, in LA, when my friend went to pick up the taillights, there were like only 4 pairs in the warehouse, and APC only makes a few of them. good luck with you guys...

Looks good from a distance, but that fake carbon fiber up close looks like ass. Not very good quality since everyone says they're not sealed properly. I'd rather keep the stock ones.

there's no way to change the turn signals to orange, but u can custom make one tho... I think you can put orange bubls in the sides and rewire it...

it's true that APC's quality is crap, the middle one is just there for looks, it doesnt have any holes to let you put bulbs in...
