Question Tail lights

I didn't like the Red stock tail lights on my car because of my car color. It looked kinda like a Christmas decoration. So, I got the TYC carbon fiber tails, but do they look ricey?



Thanks for you opinions.

Oh I'm definietly keeping them. I had to take the bumper off to get them on. I'm not going through that trouble to change them back. I should have taken a pic before the new ones to do a comparison.

Thanks for the opinions so far though.

Worst case scenario, the light arrangement inside the lights isnt that bad, you could paint color-keyed green around the outside to match the car. Might look good. Just a thought.

those tailights are actually good quality and fitment compared to some others ive seen. but i honestly like the 04-05 tailights would look better on that green. but hey its your ride whatever pleases you.

Thank you all for you opinions so far. I do like the 04-05 tails better, but I'm just gonna stick with what I got. Can't shell out more money for more tails.

I think the idea of painting the carbon backing to match the rest of the body may have potential. I've never seen it done, but it may look good. Kind of like the whole "blacked-out" look, except green.
