Question Please tell me your honest opinion

I have purchased some tail lights for my car, ahem, Altezza lights. I bought them because I liked the style of them and thought that they'd look good, which I think they do. Yet I'm getting a lot of stupid comments about, 'ricer' and such. Tell me what you think. Should I scrap them and get OEM clears? Are they too ricey?

Everything always boils down to personal taste and bascially, how much other people's opinions matter to you. I personally don't like them, but like I said... it's your car dude.

The chrome is a bit too loud, maybe if it was black instead. But like EMPOWERD said, in the end, it's your car, do whatever you like/want, not because of outside influence.

At first glance, your car looked like a Civic (especially the 3rd pic). I personally don't like the Altezza lights but like others said, it's your car and if you like them then who cares what others say.

generally speaking..most of the guys on this board dont like altezza lights or anything otherwise known as "ricey"...

BUT once again....its your car and you can mod it however you want...thats what gives us individuality....

but no...im not a fan of those lights either... I would maybe consider the smoked red/clear lights.

Yup, first look from behind would say 'Civic' to me.

But that's just me.

If you like them, guess that's really all that matters.

Nice Honda you got there! Just my opinion of course. It's your car and you're free to do whatever you want with it. Personally, I'd stay with something close to stock.
