Can anyone post up, even just a photoshop, of some of these black tails I've see on a haby red. I loved them on a black si, but obviously they matched up pretty nicely. I like the look so much its made me reconsider my color choice. Black is just so easy! red I'm still confused on how to make my own.

If you're referring to smoked or darkened tail lights, I think most people have been applying tint film to get the effect. There's also some spray available, but I think it'd be a pain to use, and you can't chage it back very easily. Personally, I think it's stupid and dangerous to dim your tail lights, and if you're in an accident where their visibility is an issue, you'll probably have screwed yourself.

Hmmm...maybe someone should put up a link or pic. I'm not sure I know what you're talking about.

Here are some links, the black ones not the alteza type.

this image above shows how good it looks on black, but I'm thinking the contrast on haby red would either look great or completely horrible. With black rims though I think this could hook up a sort of red with black accent look, and consideringtheres already a black interior, and with a nice dark tint the whole thing migh tie together nicely.

cliffnotes: tint, black rims, these black backed lights, stock black interior = red/black ride

Spargo, thanks for posting the pic. I don't want them, but that really doesn't look too bad, and I don't think it has the same potentially dangerous effect as the smoked/tinted lights. Is that a replacement part, or are people opening up their tail lights and blacking that portion out?

They are aftermarket, I do believe.
