04 vs 01 Taillights

I think my taillights are very close to looking like altezza tail lights. Mainly because of the chrome reflector and the "clear" like appearance. But after reading up a bit on here, seems like the trend is 04 tails, but altezzas are just not accepted. I think im gonna track down some 01 tails and ditch these altezza wanna b's


04's

01s



Im not to sure, but these would most likely swap with my current ones right?

i love the look of my 04's tail-lights, seems like they are nicer looking than anything aftermarket i can find...i don't really care for the 01-03, that horseshoe effect on the light looks kinda ugly imo...

I understand where you’re coming from. I love my 01 civic tails because they are unique. Yeah the 04 are very attractive but they are too bright for me, I'm into more of the "Darth Vader's Whip" thing lol. But the people on here love the 04 look which is okay because every one has their own style.

As far as your question if it would be a easy conversion... you might have to do the steps backwards in this thread ---> http://www.7thgencivic.com/forums/sh...DIY+Taillights. Good Luck.

What he means by "horseshoe effect" is it's a U on its side when viewed like above.

BTW talking about hwatness! Whose car is that you have up there??

01-02 were better IMO...... as texas2K1 said, they are unique. The horizontal horseshoe thing reminds me of the Ferrari F50.....
