i remember the thread, i know someone that made clears for his, i saw them irl, looked like s**t~nods~that's because the clear bit was plexiglass and looked ghettorigged.
i've seriously considered it, and from my perspective as an art student, i think clear tailights, of any kind, would look like crap on our cars. i'm glad they don't make them for us. it's one of those things that separates us from the ricers. i prefer to keep it that way. sorry for the extreme reaction, but the 3k/stealth is a very well designed car and shouldn't be subjected to the same visual mutilation that civic owners put their cars through. ours are faster, ours are prettier, from the factory. we don't need that kind of thing.

note: i'm something of an eliteist a$$ in case you hadn't noticed, please store in memory bank

I think altezzas would look great on a 3s. I have a white one and dream of the day where I could get altezzas. I see white eclipses with them and I want them even more. How is it rice? I thought ricers were people that have stickers on their car for stuff they don't have. If a ricer to you is anyone with a civic or integra then I guess I like ricers a lot. I think pretty much any aftermarket import is tight. I don't on the other hand like the people who lie about what they have with stickers. The whole ricer thing on this board really frustrates me. My 2 cents.

I think that gaines has the right idea, not everyone can afford a 3kgt/stelth so they buy a civic and make it as fast as they can. they all look cool and even if a 3kgt/stelth is faster, you never know, there are really fast civics out there too. i still like my VR-4 better, i love it, and i don't think altezzas would look bad on it. just because they are on an integra doesn't mean that they are not allowed on a VR-4. but everyone is entitled to there own opinion, just dont make others feel bad for having one too.:)

Altezzas are the Euro Backup Lights If I am not mistaken..

And I really dont like how they look on any car..so in my opinion I they would look like crap on my 3K...but than again everybody has their own opinions about everything. If you can find a place that does it or someplace that actually sells it go ahead and put them on just as long as you like them.;)

Has anyone ever thought about trying to modify just the brake lights of Eclipse Altezzas to fit 3/S? They look extremely similar to me...

someone is trying to make them

Yeah Hobbit382 is making them, the thread is http://209.58.199.225/vbb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=35175
he is in the process of making them. he's had some problems with the molders that he is having make the clear part of the lights but he is still working on them. The altezza's are the ones that have the Red Circles in in the clear lenses with a chrome or carbon background. Hope that helps out

I seem to have offended some of you by bringing this up. sorry, just chill. i just think that altezzas, although they are on many other cars, still look cool and would seperate your car from most if not all of the other 3si cars that don't have em. i am personally much more concerned about the speed of my car rather than how it looks but because i just purchased it, i don't have much money and until i have enough for a good boost controller, i will probably just buy some guages and cheap asthetic stuff like altezzas. i guess my car is allready rice because the previous owner has allready put some dope one of a kind parts on it that were specially made for him in japan (prof, called sheep dog in america, BOV and 3&1/2 in straight pipe exhaust, no cats.) i understand if you don't like them, and i do value and respect your opinion otherwise i wouldn' have put up a thread, but you don't have to get all angry and rude about it.

Thanks and hopefully we can all just get along now, after all, we ALL have dope cars right?

:p

WHY DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS???

ALTEZZA IS THE NAME FOR IS300 IN JAPAN!!!

That's why the Lexus IS300 has that taillights.

It is the origin.. They have more taillights like that for Toyotas in Japan as a design thing.. but man... people, just taillights..

hey dicks out there who are trashing the kid for asking a question, thats not cool at all, personaly i think the altezas wont do this beatuiful car right at all, but if you guys want to do it, go for it, not everyones car has to look the same, anyways, it never hurts to ask a question

to the kid who wants altezas, do what you want, but it could devalue the beutiful car u own

thanks brice,
i do kind of agree with a lot of you who think altezzas would look bad on our cars, right now i don't think they would look to good on my dark green VR-4 but with the way i am going to go with my car i think altezzas would look great! i (eventually) want everything on my car to be either dark navy blue or chrome-like shiny silver. i want to get something other than chrome though because our cars are allready too heavy so i am looking into brushed aluminum and things like that. however, i am not sure if brushed aluminum looks all shiny like chrome (help on this subject would be much appriciated). anyway, back on the subject of altezzas, if everything else on the car was dark blue or silver, i think the stock red would look horrible:eek: . i have put thought into black outs or blue outs (if i could do that) but i just think it would look kind of cheezy and would look off color and funny on my future car. don't get me wrong i have seen some sick 3/s cars with black outs and such that look great but the silvery kind of look that the altezzas have would look by far better if they were complimented by everything else on the car. sorry this is getting long but i also wabted to mention something i saw on another thread, there was a lot of S**T talking of the erebruni (spelling?) front bumper and then some guy stepped in and mentioned to someone who was diising how it looked that they had complimented it on his car not too long before that. the rebuttle was that it worked with his car because he had also done other extensive mods that it looked great with. that is how i think my altezza situation is and i still think that they will look sick when i am done. i will post pics in about 7 years when i get this all done:D
