View Full Version : Tails...

I was THINKING about getting tails from andysautosport because they owe me 80 bucks for being assclowns, so that would make everything cheaper, but I know a lot of you on here aren't really big fans of them... plus on my silver grand am SE, I can't really figure out which ones would match very well...

So my two questions are: which tail lights would you guys pick if you had to pick among the ones on AAS? And also, if you could pick any reasonably priced ones not on AAS, which ones would they be? Here's a picture of the back of my grand am just for reference (and yes I know the tips are crooked, that's what you get from choosing a cheap muffler shop... and I also need to remove the dealership sticker):

Oh and finally, if I don't get the tails from AAS, what do you all think I should invest in from there? Dash gauges?

Lookin pretty good for 177,000 miles :D

damn that is a lot of miles... I am not entirely familiar with the AAS collection, maybe some pics for those of us who are lazy would help. I'd say next mod could be some new headlights, black or chrome.

If you're going to quote me (and in a negative way no less), at least spell what I said correctly :p

I was looking at those projectors for headlights:

Think black or chrome would look better? I personally like black better but I'm wondering which one would mesh with my silver GASE better...
EDIT: I'm probably getting a set of black rims soon, so I thought black might be neat...

And yeah, loootttsss of miles... but it's had very few problems. It's the most reliable grand am I've ever known BY FAR, even though I don't always drive it nice :devil:

Oh yeah and sorry... here's the link to the AAS tail lights:

Where do you get the tinted stock tail lights at? That was just mentioned :p

Honestly I'm not a fan of any of those. If I had to choose any aftermarket tails I'd choose black TYCs but they only look good on a few colors.

Oh and you actually tint the stockers yourself. $20 for a can..Beats $200+ for some tails huh?

you use tint and tint your stock tails YOURSELF or buy some from ebay or on here.

if you want some from AAS:

Yeah I actually liked the TYC better but even with $80 off I figured they were expensive... tinted TYC tho... hmmm YGM Grreen99GT I'll look at them ;)

Get Josh's tinted TYC's, would look freakin awesome on silver. And from what I've seen, don't waste your money on the projector headlights, go with some black and chrome headlights, not sure who makes them now but I bought my chrome/clear from Auto Dynasty like almost two years ago. But if you MUST get black rims (and look like everyone else) you almost have to get Josh's TYC's and some black/clear headlights.

I like black rims more than chrome for some reason :p I'll probably get dark tail lights and headlights to match. Gotta think about this :D

Thanks for all suggestions so far guys!

Well when I got pulled over for speeding he double checked my tails to see if he could see the light and he said im straight.. and mine are pretty blacked out so... Tinting ur tails you should be fine and if they are to dark just throw LED's in them. Ppl say ur supposed to have an amber corner in ur heads but ive never been hassled for mine. Cops here in california are pretty cool about tint and what not because like every car in this town has 35% or darker. Anyway back on topic, Id say tinted stockers ftw for tails. Black/clear headlights as well. I'm not sure about black rims though. :|

you can have amber or clear corner..BUT the turn signal is only legal if it is amber in color. :)

holy **** those tinted TYC's look awesome...

I think it's settled... I'll get black headlights :p

Tail lights, definitely doing tinted SOMETHING...

Rims will probably be 5-spoke black rims. Something simple, nothing gaudy or ricer-ish. Less is more sometimes ;)

So pretty.

I want someone to tint my lights, they look nice that way.
And black rims are extremely hot!!
I don't know if black will look so nice with your color, but if you dislike chrome, like me, you can try gunmetal or something along those lines.
Good luck either way.

It does. I can't seem to find a rear strut bar though... where can I find one? A lack of good rear tires doesn't help the matters either :)

gonna try them out at least... hopefully I likes :D If not I might just go to the tinted GT tails :p

Black headlights... prolly going to be the projectors because I'm REALLY liking those, but I'm open to other suggestions too ;)

Rims I'm pretty much set in, but it's going to be a while before I get those (my dad promised me a set of tires in a couple months because it's still technically HIS car, but I want to get the rims and tires at the same time so I'm going to wait till he's got the cash).

I think next up though I'm getting a DHP PCM and rear strut bar, then probably the headlights.
