Hey y'all i recently bought a set of Altezza's on on ebay, i have installed them and everything is fine just i now want to splice of the break lights so it lights up the only unused lighting area (don't know the technical term) which is next to the blinker part, has anyone done this yet and was it relatively easy??

lol.. got ripped off.. but i reckon your car would look better with the stockies neways... stands apart from all the modified civics these days with altezzas.. just my 2cents, your car, do whatever you think is nice ;)

heres a pic of mine without the altezzas.


suppose ur right

yeah sorry ...here is the pic!

I prefer the altezza's cause they just look better...i hated the the red tail lights cause they just juxtaposed <----- (Big arse word learnt it in art, means out of place or didn't belong, like hyundai excels and roads) the whole car, i mean the head lights are crystal clear, i have clear side indicators and now i have the clear altezza's ..... just clean's up the car ..specially the rear end

the same thing happened to me.. i got out bidded in the last second, on a pair of clear tail lights... i wanted them bad

they were the clear type that you can NOT see into the lights (the circle parts) i think they are much better looking.. does anyone know where i can get a pair of these from??? or how much

oh and member - civic type R... is that a real Type R civic?

No its a VTiR.
All my interior is genuine EK9 Civic Type R and the exterior has also been modified to match EK9.

Ahh I don't like altezza's either.
I think they look better One colour rather than 2-3 colours.

Your car, your choice :wink:

hey i saw a nice set of altezza's yesterday, its got the darker housing, looks OK.. but i'd still prefer stock, but definitely the best looking altezzas for an EK i've ever seen, btw it belongs on nobbs' car, who is a member on here! perhaps you can ask him for pics..
