HAHA!!! APC is such a gay company. I wonder why everyone likes those Altezza/Euro/IS300 lights. I guess we really do have the nicest cars out there huh?? Everyone wants to be like us!!!

Hey guys, is it just me, or do you hear alot of comments like "Those lights on the IS300 are so ricey looking", or "The IS looks like a souped up Civic (or Accord)" or something to the effect of... The IS300's lights look like they're aftermarket parts. I don't really understand this, cause those aftermarket tail lights came from THIS car. I overheard a girl say to her friend that my car had "Altezza" lights... *Sheesh*


P.s. Woo hoo! I get my car back from the shop today...

Please,

I beg an After market company to design RED TAILight covers for the IS3. PLEASE!!!

I TOO am sooo tired of the after market looking tailights everybody and their brother have on their cars now.


So much so that Im ready to change my tailights from stock clear to NORMAL RED!

Is there anyway to do this???

When the market demands it...the suppliers will respond. I for one, will tire of the clear lenses at some point and start looking for "normal" replacements

i'm so sick of the altezza rip offs as well. i like the stock civic tailights. however, i'm also tired of you is300 owners always whining about how your car looks like a civic or how ppl want to copy the is300. the civic was out way before the is/altezza, so you can't whine about how civics are imitating the is/altezza. however, you guys have a legitimate point about the lights. too many ricers have it. but, as u know, it is a fad and will soon die down. just like clear tailights. no one has it anymore.

Here's a thought experiment:

Would people describe the Altezza/IS300's taillights as "ricey" if riceboys hadn't started putting them on their rice rockets?
