frown It has happened, Altezza style tail lamps for BA Sedan

Driving down Burke Rd in Glen Eira on Wednesday night I saw a stock BA XT with Altezza style clear tail lamps. They looked

It's a real shame, and expecially on a stocko green XT.

Yeah a bloke in Geelong has them on his XR6 Turbo Ute. It's a Phantom ute, and I reckon they look shit. So if you are reading this dude, the car looks good enough standard. If it aint broke you can't fix it can you? Spend you money on more boost.

Can someone who actually likes those kinds of tail lights actually explain why they think they look good on anything but a silver car (I've seen them on a silver car and they still look crap but not as much).

They just look so out of place!

Not meaning to start a flame-war or anything, but if someone decides they want to personalise their car and put different tail lights on it, who are we to criticise them. It may seem like a pointless investment to us, but if they are happy with their car, leave them alone.

Re: It has happened, Altezza style tail lamps for BA Sedan

True, each to their own. It's something that has become all to much associated with the ricer scene.

The ones for AU/BA utes have always been available as they are the same tail lights as used in the F trucks in America.
