Anyone got Altezza Tails on a black 2dr 98-02?

Anyone think they look nice?

I see so many accords (98-02) with those Altezza lights. It seems as if someone is giving them away for free or something. I was thinking about getting them for my car but I found another set this is plain but still nice. www.procarparts.com

The only difference with the ones I have is the signal and the reverse parts of lights are both clear whereas on a stock car they are amber.

I don't see many 98-02 Accords with aftermarket lights at all.

They're popular here, but not on 98-02 Accords. Even SUV's got them here.

Re: Anyone got Altezza Tails on a black 2dr 98-02?

I just put some carbon fiber altezzas on my black 2000 accord v6 4dr and they look great. So much better looking than the ones with the white/silver background. Relatively easy installation too. Had a tough time with a really tight hex nut on the stock lights that i didnt want to strip, but other than that they were worth the $90 i payed and are such an improvement -- a must get.

I just got a set of those for my 1998 Accord EX V6 (have not installed them yet). I looked around for a while and decided to go with them. My car is black and I have put on black chrome emblems, gunmetal rims, and JDM black headlights. I have only had the car for a month now and I am just starting to work on it. Plans that still need to be completed are ... lowering it, black tint the windows and the chrome around the windows will get powder-coated black. Going for the stealth look.

Here is a picture of it so far:

yea im going for sorta the same look, but im gonna go with chrome rims cause i think theyll stand out more against the black. im not gonna act like i can race in this 4-door tank . I am putting in a short ram intake this afternoon, but thats more for sound than anything else. I also have chrome muffler tips that look pretty nice on the v6's duel exhaust, but theyre all looks and no function. I do like the gun metal rims, what are the dimensions on those? Ill post some picks of my car in a little while.

The rims are 17X7.5 and I am running P215/50R17 Hankook tires on them.
