I have a blue civic also I have chrome altezzas on mine I like them. It is up to you though I think either would look good.

it's your car man. i highly doubt that anyone on this site cares as to which you pic. personally i would go with NO altezza's but then again that's my opinion, which should NOT matter to you

I'd say no to altezzas but if I did i'd pick the carbon fiber they are doable

I think the carbon fiber altezzas only look good on dark colored cars, like black and blue and the chromes only on silver. I have a silver coupe, but not sure about the chromes yet.

If you must get altezza's then get the CF ones. I personally would stay stock. That is unless they release a non-altezza taillight that actually functions better than stock. Wow, what a novel concept huh? Something better than OE! I hate the aftermarket! [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG]

The Chrome and Blue would go together nicely.

I say no altezzas my self but I prefer to put the $200 to a set of rims, so if you want them get them

Nick

Chrome to give you a idea, I don't have my other disk up with some CF ones at the moment

Stay OEM with the blue pearl. It looks good and you can put the money to better actual useful mods. If somebody would come out w/ some good altezzas like the full chrome for the 2000+ eclipse
