New 4-DR taillights- design'em & post'em here.

Seems like lots of us are tired of the Altezze-style lights by now... especially since you see them on everything out there. Anyone got an idea? Let's put them up here & see where the next taillight trend can lead.

Here's one to get started - it keeps the outer stock lights and would replace the trunk sections - with a decent reflector, you can see where you're backing up.

Good... some response - like'em hate'em whatever... but mr. ironcow... do you have any design ideas beyond the ever popular altezza-style on your car?


Insults are cheap - Real Ideas are priceless.

Those would be the 'Jaguar Style' Altezzas. I was thinking of getting them but got the Hybrids instead. And that clear peice for the reverse light really doesnt give more visibility seeing as the bulb would still be the same.

I'm not too sure the purpose of this thread. Are you looking for some ideas to make new tails?

New Ideas! Yes! This is a call for new ideas!

What can we do different? The hybrid tails are nice (IMO), pricey, but nice and if mine came like that I'd probably be happy.
Now that all the car makers are designing in "altezza-type, aftermarket-style" tails from the factory, what's next?


I do think that a better reflector & lens could do better with the same bulb than the pink reverse section of the stock.

The pics that I posted is a p-shop simulation, not something on market today.

Haha. I thought it looked a bit off for some reason. [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG] Actually, something like that is out already..



You can get them at AutoDynamic.com for $138.

bhayes82 - Weren't you the one that flamed me couple months back when I mentioned I was getting the Hybrid Tails? [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG]

i wouldn't be surprised if the hybrid tails came standard on all 2003 or 2004 civic sedans, and the UK coupe tails came on the 2003 or 2004 coupes. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-disgusted.gif[/IMG]

edit: minor grammatical error

contrary to popular belief, my grammar is NOT in the kitchen making cookies.
