Final word on Altezzas...

Ok, clearly this is a question of taste. Obviously some feel very strongly against it, some are all about it. In any case, I have a 2k2 lx coupe in black, and am strongly considering this pair of G1(?) black metal altezzas I saw on ebay. But the more I look at different styles, the more I find I like in each of them. So below is a pick of the litter... Let me know what your opinions are, and experience with these...

- i have the g1's (donut altezzas). i have the cf ones and they look sweet on my ride. out of all my exterior mods, they get the most attention. a lot of people like how they look. plus they match my black projectors up front.
- easy to install, my right altezza fogs up sometimes. but it usually goes away.
- one problem i have with the g1's is that the whole donut doesn't light up when i step on the brakes, just the top half( that's how they were manufactured, i guess)
- hopefully, i gonna find away though to have the whole circle light up.

I like the G1 gunmetal and the G1 carbon fiber ones...what I don't like is that the lenses suck: They fade and turn orange.[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-puke.gif[/IMG]

I wonder, if you get LED bulbs, which are not as hot as stock, might this not be an issue then?

IMO, the G1 design blends better into the overall design of the car.

I think I'm gonna consider the TYC for myself (chrome).

1. TYC
2. APC

i've always been a big fan of carbon fiber ones, i got a silver ex. and i am gonna get some fibers. i think carbon would look really good on black!!

apc chrome altezzas, btw, u can get led turn signal bulb clusters for the rear, just plug it in, looks sweet with the chrome altezzas, search for 3156 led bulbs on ebay, check to make sure thats the right size tho. i like the apcs cause at night the brake lights form a teardrop shape. it's swell.

i also think tyc are the best, thats because i have them. they are also good quality. i have had them for four months now and have had no problems with them. another plus is that they come with a certiticate of compliance so you can't get a ticket. the only thing i disliked about them was the orange turn signal. that was no biggie, just bought some red ones.
