I think you might find like 5 people who want a set of Altezza or clears, people throw the term Euro tails around so much who knows what you mean? No matter, probers don't really want them too much.

Euro tails for Probes look like this also:


I have a set of those to install one of these years on my '93..

why not contact a few British ford dealers and see f they have any instock. If they were produced by ford originally you should be able to pick them up in the european market somewhere. And with our current dollar you can possibly get them for a good price. Have you looked to AU for the possibility? If they have them there i can tell you this that it will cost you half what it does here.

Just some thought.

Personally i do not see spamming all the folks at the manufacturer is going to help your cause at all. I think an organized approach to them would be better suited. I can state some examples. There were some AFtermarket swaybars that Herb Adams made for the Impala but stopped production of them in 96. Well the folks got together a list of names and contact information approached HA and presented the info to them stating that they had means to get x amount sold. well HA made that run and sold over 400 of them. 2 years later he was approached again with the same scenario. This time with only 30 orders. He made them. again he did this last year and had a run of 90 and made and sold them.

SO approaching them they may consider it. Spamming them i can tell you that they will not. You have to show that you are organized and that there is a real want/need for them. Other wise the manufacturer will not take it seriously.

Just my 2 cents

No, I believe he was reffering to the Altezza style lights. I haven't really wanted them on my car as the red contrasts the blue of my car perfectly. :hy:

Here is a pic someone photoshoped back in the day to give you an idea what they would look like.

IIRC if you approach your local Ford dealer with the correct Euro part number they can order them for you. Where do you think they're warehoused? Michigan. The only problem is the dealer may screw up the part number for you or tell you it isn't available through them. Go to the next dealer.

haha, I got one of mine off of Ebay, and then I got the other from Ford.. for $300!! :eek: But the Ebay one was only $60 so it worked out. Now I need to install them one of these days.

As for Euros in this thread, he is actually talking about the clear Altezza's which should be called the Japanese Tails or something.. I hate it when people call them Euros..

And Jade, not every single tuner wants those, this thread should be your hint, almost everyone in here is a tuner to some extent, and hardly anyone likes the Altezza tails. What's the thrill in having them? It seems like everybody that can that is into modding has clears or Altezza's.. be different, be happy with your stock lenses.. don't be a sheep.. BaaAAaaa..

If you want something different do the Aus/Euro tails..

Seriously, everyone I know says that they a "fuckin ugly". No tuner worth his weigh in rotors would want those. Leave the altezzas to the wannabes.

Here are all the real Euro lights you can handle.

Altezza's are the ugliest and worst thing to happen to car of any caliber

If they made Altezza's for the Probe, I would consider them, depending on the final outcome. I like the Altezza lights, but there's some cars they just don't look good on. I'd have to see a REAL set on a probe, because that Photoshop Job looks good, IMO

I emailed the guys that you posted for us to "spam" or ask about the Altezza lights, and they replied and said they were never going to make the lights and that if we wanted altezza's to get a car that fit their production line. I guess they aren't big fans of the Probe huh, I say we look for another manufacturer, everyone that wants them email me a full name, and city, state, model of car, and I will present them to the maker and also links to all the Probe sites that I can find, if we show them that the Probe is not dead, then maybe they will special order a number for us.
