Painted Taillights and Calipers , thought id share

Im starting to not like my cars looks more and more each day. The fart can bothers me the most at this moment. The no tint factor sucks ***** too. I had 5 % but got a ticket for it recently. Anyway heres where she stands currently. Im haulting the exterior for now and moving to Forced Induction Funding against my better judgement. Anyways tell me if im going the wrong way or making it look clean because right now i just dont know. I was all for the blacked out look but my two major blacked out features have been deleted. (Rims and Tint) so im stuck with These rims for now and Cleared OEM's none the less heres something for you to waste 30 seconds of your eye time on /

Hate it or Hate it ***Notice the Burned up yellow tint on the foglights GREAT HUH!***

Re: Painted Taillights and Calipers , thought id share

I don't like the back end at all, never been a fan of blacked out tails or big ugly mufflers.

Front end looks nice

I have red calipers too, rhcp0801 do you which to comment?

?WTF? one yellow and one clear fog

Looks good, but I hope you don't get rear ended... the insurance company will screw you over w/ that tint...

Re: Painted Taillights and Calipers , thought id share

I've got the same car, but with Enkei Gf1. I just bought black taillights from K2Motor.com for $85, you might want to look into that. I'm going to tint them, not too much because like he said, the insurance company wouldn't like it very much. But they look sooo nice. Some pics to help you out...

haha you can see me in my slippers... That's a good wax job.


Sorry for the bad lighting, I just ran out and snapped these. Hope they help

Re: Painted Taillights and Calipers , thought id share

I'd say just get the oem foglights and an exhaust tip that sits up nicer under the car and you'll be set. The wheels aren't half bad and the windows . . . well everyone will understand. OR just get a really light tint on the front and make the back ones even darker so then you might be able to trick a few cops! Oh, and maybe drop it a li'l more!

They're oem fit, it's like plug and play. You remove the four nuts from the OEM lights and slam these in. Tighten them up, plug in the light fixtures, and you're good to go. No cutting or modding. They're great! I love them. The customer service is fine, and delivery was pretty quick, about a week. They were $85, free shipping. And you get 5% off you order when you order two things. I ordered a N1 knockoff cat-back too, it was also perfect. It sounds great! I don't know would people would spend more than twice what I did ($200) for Apex'i name. Pipes are pipes in my eyes.
