Where´s that guy that wanted to know the definition of RICE? :-]
Putting gobs of chrome behind clear plastic on a car that doesn´t incorporate chrome anywhere else in it´s design... got a shogun wing to go with those things?
How many of you know why they´re called Altezzas? (I´m not tryin to diss anyone, just wondering how many of you know)
The Altezza is a Toyota model designed to compete with the BMW 320i. It has a similar high output 2.0L inline 6 and like the 320i is not sold in the US. The chassis is used in the Lexus marketed IS300 here in the states. It´s taillights are of this same design. I used to love the sight of them on the IS300, but now that every ricer has them on his civic (as well as the new Nissan Altima).. they´ve lost their luster for me.
They´re mostly a fad though and will be considered faux pas whenever the next thing comes out. As you can probably tell, I´m not one to live at the height of fashion.
Hey, put what you want on your ride though. Personal expression never meant you had to please anyone else.
Those lights will NEVER be on my car...Ok ok so you´re like WHAT?? :-? Here´s my reasoning. I just don´t think altezza´s look good on a Red car. I like how my car matches with the taillights and putting white/red combination in kind of screws with the reflectors and with the look of the car...just my opinion. If i had a white GT like Zeemax´s I´d get some altezzas, those´d make his car look sweet.
put those babies in the oven at 250 for 3 minutes, and pull em apart. mask off the light parts, use rubbing alchohol on the mirror part, and spray paint them. looks alot better than the original altezza IMO. Altezza´s are kinda shitty. If you do buy them use a clear silicone so that water and condensation don´t occur inside..
