http://www.i-m-racing.com/alblachousta.html

it says no reflection, does that mean flat black JDM tails?.. i was just wondering cuz im looking for the JDM flat black tail lights, not the 02 model style of the JDM black chrome tails..i dont wanna get something that isnt right...

also, can anyone help me find some close up pics of the JDM smoked inner tail light circles? thanks a ton guys..


(btw, ive done searches and have found pics of the flat black JDM tails, and i have also seen them in person.. i was just wondering if anyone had experience from this site in the link above.. also, i cant find any good pics of the JDM smoked inner circles no matter where i look.. again, thanks all..)

I paid 200 for mine, when I put them next to the 2002 black chrome, mine look, much much muck darker, edgy also purchased from the same guy but his were exactly like the 2002. Maybe I got lucky, i bought them from Akitas a ebay member from Japan.

Hey Dave...

It sounds to good to be true... But you never know!!! I would give a call there and speak to someone there who knows about the tail lights real good.... Just to be safe if you decide to order.. I have usually seen them go for about $550...

Here is the website you have been looking for with smoked inner tails.... They have lots of other goodies too.. :D
Don't forget to check out the other products/links in the left hand tool bar as well..

http://shop.store.yahoo.com/lexusparts/lexus.html

It is a pretty good site... Some prices are resonable and some are not...

Talk to you lata..

Hey, can you post the part numbers for the flat black tails? I want to buy them, but am afraid that I'll end up getting the exact same 2002 chrome tails I have on the car now. Thanks!

Don't believe everything you hear.... I've bought TWO sets of "flat black" tails after I was 100% assured that they were FLAT BLACK..... *cough* TOYOTA *cough*...... they were black chrome. All I can say is make sure you know what you're buying and save yourself the time and $$$$.


Don't give up just yet edgy ;)

I put in a bid for a dash tray ($89) and won the auction put up by KINAUTO. I inquired about second day shipping prior to the close of the auction with no response. When I submitted my total request, I got no response (twice now). I have also sent 2 requests via email to Now, 8 days later, I still have not received a response yet (4 requests so far), nor a total for 2nd shipping and the item.

I would NOT recommend that you bid on any items posted by KINAUTO. If you read their other feedback (positive mostly), a lot of people have complained about 10-18 day delivery times.

I don't know if it's the yellow Paint, but mine look much much darker than any black chrome I've seen, Even on a yellow IS
I've kind of noticed that the black chrome lights look much darker from the side of the car. When you look straight at the back of the car, for some reason, they look lighter. I think the flat black tails aren't like that. Those are nice rims, by the way. Are they the BBS?

As for Ebay... I've emailed pretty much every person selling the "Black tail lights". None of the sellers that I have asked have been positive about whether or not the lights they are selling are the same as the 2002 black chrome, so I figure it's better safe than sorry.
