Quality blows with these, not worth the cash.

I own a set of these and they have seen off and on two years of time of use..have been trying some different things with them. I would compare the quality of them as close to oem specs and material. I have never had any issue with them at all. But i paid alot less for mine, brand new in box for $60 many years ago. But remember they will be black tails on a red car...i think you at least need to color match them or tint to pull it off.

These have mixed rating. People love and people hate them. Then again it's life . I don't think they would look bad on a red car if u change ur headlights to black housing to match the back.

I think they will look alright. That's the style I was going to get, before the LED ones came out.

Try to find some with clear lenses & red bulbs. Other wise that's the kind I like.

As you can see some like the look, some hate em. I actually like how they looked out of the box colormatched and for some reason these lights really good spoilerless. The pair I own is put together pretty well and dont be afraid to buy if quality of the product is your concern, this is a syle choice. But styling is personal taste, so if you like them buy them.

These are about the only aftermarket tails I would consider but even still, a tinted set of GT tails looks much better to me. At least these tails don't have all the extra crap in them that makes them look too busy. These are simple, clean and decent looking.

I'd be more likely to rag on your headlight covers than these tails. Those covers make for a very dim light output at night (I had a set for about a month.) After your tail upgrade, definitely consider getting a black housing headlight (stock or projector are up to your own personal taste but beware, many of the projector lights are fairly ugly.)

The big key to modding a car (even if it's not a style I would like) is to keep it consistent. That doesn't just mean the aftermarket parts either. Make sure they flow with the body and style of the stock portions of the car too. That's a difficult thing to do since the majority of aftermarket parts left for the GA's are not suited to the stock styling at all. Keep it simple and you'll look a lot better (and it's cheaper!)

There is a couple of GAs here in town that have stocker tails that have been taken apart and cleared, then they just put red bulbs back in.

It's different looking, but not so glaring that it looks strange. There is a silver one and a black one here with that mod, and they look pretty okay, but a lot of people don't even notice, so if you're looking for attention, that may not be for you
