Big Rob has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I've always like the chrome style, but everyone else on this site seems to hate them. In my opinion, the first one looks a lot better.

Yeah I think people think chrome looks too too flashy. I do like the first one myself, I am just hoping that it looks as sweet as that, there is a ting of gold in which will go good with my body color. I just hope that it is not too silverish, I cant really tell from the pic

Well, if you don't like the way that it looks, then you can always open it up and paint it. I have seen people paint the chrome part both white and gunmetal and both looked bad ***. Also, I wouldn't even consider the second one, because both of the other two could be painted to look like it.

As I said, people here don't like those types of lights.
The first one looks gunmetal, but it could be the lighting. They aren't too hard to paint. I haven't done it myself, but you can do a search to get the step by step diy.
Don't listen to what these other guys say. It's your car and if you want the tail lights, then I say go for it. I don't care anymore about the rice insults that people use. If it's civic, then it's going to be called rice no matter what you do. People have called my car rice and it is stock. It doesn't look different or sound different than stock, and I didn't even have any mods.

get the chrome altezzas, then paint over everything except the reverse light in candy apple red. that way the chrome-ness shines through the paint without looking gay. just like the g35
