Personally I wouldn't do any drilling or cutting on any part of the car exterior. You only get one chance at it, and if you screw up, it's hard to fix.

There not sidemarkers, they are direction indicators......

could you not order the is200/Altezza fender(JDM/EURO) which has the holes already in
That would seem to be a bunch of expense just to end up with a couple of little lights.

But if your really wanting the look bad, you would go and do it. :wink:

just take your time and do it right, one shot deal otherwise you will have to pay to have them filled, sanded and repainted. They really do look nice, go for it, it is only a car!!

We can let a good professional body shop drill holes in our fenders, if we don't have good manual dexerity. It won't be pricey for a body shop drilling holes in fenders.

I wouldn't

most people go through this JDM phase then get over it, you will be stuck! Chances of LOVING It for the life of the car is slim.

exactly what he said...i did this on an older car...liked it, but i don't want to do it now since it'll be costly to fixed/change.....

but there are alot of people that have drilled the hole for the altezza indicator...

i have some .... & i'm putting them in.....


I am NOT a FULL OJN JDM all the way kinda dude either....

I just like them there on other cars & want them on mine too.

Plus, I just painted the stock Side markers MSM to blend in with the rest of the front, now that i am running the L sportline rr w NO rr side markers at all... it looks MUCH better now with solid MSM front markers... matches the rear nicely!
this now gives me a good reason to go with the fender mounted markers.... I could give a shit if they were JDM or DTM.... :roll:



measure 2x... cut 1x
:D

I don't know what country you're from, but here in the United States, they are called sidemarkers.
