Icon14 hey so any opinons on tail lights

Hey everyone, my prelude is coming back to me soon from getting an engine swap ( engine was knocking) and my bithday passed on the 7th, so my brother said hed get me tails or something cool. I just wanted some opinions on the one(s) im looking at

Honda Prelude 1997-2001 Smoked Altezza Tail Lights | Honda Prelude Altezza Tail Lights

the smoked ones im probably staying away from but let me know what you think.

Honda Prelude 1997-2001 JDM Black Altezza Tail Lights | Honda Prelude Altezza Tail Lights

i was pretty set on gettting these, my car is black and i would put a light layer of tint over them rather than buying the smoked ones.

let me know any and all opinions/comments or if you have certain tails you prefer or have on your car.

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

I made a similar topic many weeks ago when my tail light was broken. I finally got the one on your second link and trust me, I didnt last 1 month with it. I came back to the stock one and tinted them a bit, they look way better that way. Seriously, don`t get the Altezza but it`s your choice try them and you`ll know.

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

Dude, I'm sorry that just about everyone here is gonna tell you that they're too rice and that they're ugly. That's my opinion as well BUT, I would go with whichever ever choice makes you the happiest. Good luck!

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

thanks for all the comments and suggestions, ive never seen a lude with the azelea tails so i really dont know how theyd look. Thanks for the support i guess and im new so i dont know everything lets keep that in mind.

Ill put some thought into keeping the stock ones but i dont really like the way they look. if i could tint them and maybe leave an outline around the reverse lights it would look cool. has anyone done this? Anyone have pictures of their tails?

Im trying to go medium with the tint i suppose, not dark but not light you know. If i remove the amber, maybe i can get different bulbs or leds? I want a different look hence why i was going to get new tails but if i keep the old ones i dont want it to look like any other lude with tinted stock tails. I guess if this threads still alive let me know if my ideas might be nice or if you have any similar ideas/ pictures.

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

I have a medium tint on mine done with VHT night share and I put some clear after. I'll try to take a pic today and good for Prelude with altezza on them the clear ones are way too rice and carbon one aren't that bad but stock is still better tinted.

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

remove amber and tint stockies. and yes a lot of states have laws against tinting your taillights
but they typically relate to not being able to see your brake lights. still looks good if you just
tint the turn signals and reverse lights. this is mine, and i didnt tint the red part of the lights at all.

Those look like they're probably legal, or close to it. Now, the guys that totally black out their lights usually get tickets around here. Not only do they barely have visible light when stopping, the reflectors are too dark to see

2nd, altezzas suck. I found a use for the ones that I had, airsoft target practice.

Repalced with stocks, much cleaner look.

good ****, looks nice thanks again for the pic and everyone else and their ideas/ opinions. I really like yours but for mine i was actually thinking, taking out the amber.. tinting the red ( medium, idk if its the same as windows witht int like 20's 30's ect) But id leave the white untited, or with a lighter coat.

Instead of buying new lights, i was wonderin if anyones just changed their bulbs, or even what site has cool bulbs.. Leds are always an option as well.

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

I personally dont mind the look of the altezzas, but the idea of putting something that is built like crap on my car makes my stomach turn. I hate buying cheap parts online and not knowing what im getting into in terms of fit, age, etc.

If you like them buy them man, but i bet youll have your OEM ones back on sooner than you think

Re: hey so any opinons on tail lights

If you really want Altezza get a car that fit it, such as a Supra. But on a serious note I had it for like one month because one of my stock tail light was broken. So glad I'm back with the OEM ones now.
