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

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

I was looking at those projectors for headlights:
http://www.customgrandam.com/projector.htm

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

Oh yeah and sorry... here's the link to the AAS tail lights:
http://www.andysautosport.com/pontia..._pro_car_wear/

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

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?

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 I'll probably get dark tail lights and headlights to match. Gotta think about this

Thanks for all suggestions so far guys!
