If i were you i would have to go with chrome ones, i don't think the carbon fiber would look good with that blue. the only time i would go with the carbon fiber is if you drove a silver car. i will be buying carbon fibers altezzas probably in the next week. but for you i say chrome

I agree with them, I'd go with chrome but what they didn't inform you is that you should go with TYC. They are guranteed to fit, the APC ones don't and the Matrix/Donut ones are a better fit then the APC's. Your best bet is TYC.

i don't like the tyc ones! the matrix ones are the one with one big round light in the middle right?
if that's it then i like the matrix ones. the tyc looks like some futuristic thingy.
thanks for the help.

i think you should go for the cf ones....your car is a dark color..therefore stick with dark colored altezzas...
just like a light car shoudl have light colored ones.....

silver=chrome
darkblue=cf
black=cf
red=either way
white=chrome
green=cf
inca=either way

just my opinion tho!

If you really want altezzas I would recommend the cf ones for your car. I had them on my EBP coupe and IMO they looked much better than the chrome ones...dark colors should use dark taillights as they blend in better and are more appealing to most eyes and light colors should use light taillights...just my opinion anyways.

i still need a couple more opinions so that i could make up my mind.
so far i'm leaning towards getting carbon fiber altezzas, but
i think the chrome ones would stand out more since i have polished silver
rims.

I got a blue coupe and I have the carbon fiber matrix ones and everybody has complimented me on them. I personally like the carbon fiber look better than the chrome & mine fit perfectly. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

i would have to agree with what others are saying, chrome goes with lighter color cars, while cf goes better with darker, so go CFfffffffff...

Yep darker car goes with CF I own a silver one and I don't like any of the new altezzas in the chrome so OEM all the way. But your car do what you want.

pedrito, your car looks clean. i think because you have black rims it really compliments your
black altezzas. i have polished silver rims. i think your car is even gonna look sweeter
once you get your kaminari sides and rears. i'm planning on getting the kaminari front.
a lot of people are telling that the carbon fiber altezzas would be better, but don't you think
the chrome altezzas would compliment my silver rims more. i have racing seneka rims.

Chrome looks bad on blue. Stands out too much. CF if you have a coupe. If you have a sedan go with these..



and if you have loot..go with the hybrid tail lights

If you have the Sedan then you already have alot of chrome and I would say definately chrome.. With the coupe, either way looks good to me.
