Is it just me, or when you see a civic or something with an altezza light kit dont you get pissed off. I saw a civic hatchback last night with altezza lights. I wanted to break the damn things.

I see alot in the bay area, and I just laugh at it

If people wanna make their car look like ours, that's something we should be proud of.

Actually, the Accords with the Altezza tailights look pretty close to the IS. I think I'd only be mad if the emblem in the middle was an "L", not an "H".....

Enjoy your IS and don't worry about the "Wannabees"

Yes, the Accords with Altezza lights can easily throw you off. I saw a silver Civic today with Altezza lights that were more horizontally oval in the center than round and it looked really sharp.

I wil be honest and say that Accords have the shape and look down right for our lights, but most people don't really care to install the two round inner lights which adds to the IS' distinctive personality.

Otherwise, the lights for the other models are not Altezza or IS... that's just an outright insult, as is the inclusion of the Skyline's legendary name, for the sale of some crappy looking lights. Last time I checked, my IS didn't have 6 red lights (Eclipse) on my rear.

As for the people who drive cars with these lights, when I see a Civic or Integra with these lights, I just laugh out loud, and know that I can eat them for lunch. (Turbo Eclipses on the other hand...)

Just the other day in fact, a Civic was tailgating me on the freeway. I sped up and he kept on me. He got an open lane, and passed me up. Once I saw the rude imitation on the back of his car, I had to defend our car's honor. >
He changed lanes to my lane, and after passing up another car, changed lanes again. That's when I gunned it. To say that he was eating my dust is an understatement.

sit back and relax...those guys driving in their civics/neons are probably feeling $hitty when they run into the "real" thing. You know, it's an ego thing.....they've got a fake, you've got an original.

Although I am getting an IS300, some a$$hole with Alabama plates in his IS cut in front of my GSR on I75 and tried to race me on......much love to the IS, but a stock GSR is as fast as an IS, and I've got my GSR supercharged.

I don't like to talk smack about IS300s, but this guy got his behind SPANKED!
