VS Altezza rear lights, your opinion...

I had the awful experience of seeing a VS commodore with clear tail lights last night, and I thought they looked god-awful.

What do you guys think of them?

On a side note, I'm seeing a lot more VL commodores with clear rear indicators. Just doesn't look right to me...

*EDIT* Multiple choices allowed

*EDIT again* Hrm come to think of it I quite liked the HRT427's tail lights... But seeing those on a VX Executive sedan complete with P plates is not a good look!

Re: VS Altezza rear lights, your opinion...

Ugly, My mate bought a pair. They look sort of like mazda 6 lights. He bought some for his headlights as well. The front looks good the rear is crap, he doesnt even like them now after having them for a week.

Re: VS Altezza rear lights, your opinion...

Philbie, you'll find that you can choose multiple options

DansEdgli, I see where you're coming from with the Mazda6 comparison, it's funny how altering one make/model's appearance can make it look like a reference to a completely different make/model! Like that Monaro thread where people are comparing it to a pontiac, XB (bonnet scoops), lancer, etc.

Re: VS Altezza rear lights, your opinion...

If a car doesn't have Altezza style lights from the factory then don't put them on later. Simple! This includes Fords...

Yeah, that was just how my mate described them to me when he told me he had them.

Re: VS Altezza rear lights, your opinion...

on some cars I think it suits, all depends on the colour of the car i think, as well as how well its integrated with the rest of the car - ie. not completely stock.
I have clear indicators on the rear of my car, i suppose they could be classed as the Altezza lights for an XF, and I love em.

I suppose end of the day, no matter what it is, provided it is done properly anything can look good.

Nope, they are not Atlezza, they are just clear, nothing wrong with that!
