I know there are some people out there who dislike the taillights of the IS300. Would you want taillights that look similar to these from the upcoming Mondeo? There is a circular design element, but it's hard to see from the digital pic. It looks better in print (pick up the current issue of Car, a British car rag) though.

Actually, have you seen the taillights of the new Civic coupe? They look exactly like those on the Focus sedan...

So would you (I'm addressing anyone) rather have something like this or keep the chrome tails?

Yeah, the lights on the 2001(?) Civics are very Focus like. The new Civic is pretty gross IMO. Yuck! Not that the current one is anything great, but the new one is a step down in the looks dept. to me. BTW, wasn't there a recall on the Focus? F'd up Focii???

i think the IS300 lights look better than the new mondeo's, but the silver reflective part under the clean lens needs to go. i think it should be body color. not reflective silver. the first mod i would make to that car, if i had one, would be to do something about toning down those tail lights.

my two sense.

I saw a Chevy Silverado in AL with the IS lights, man it looked stupid. Also every honda in town has them.
