Had my calipers and soon-to-be mounted Signature set (need those lugs, T) ceramic coated. That count as a mod? Probably not. Thinking about those euro clear tinted lights for my own car.

I picked up the taillights at CJ Pony parts... $445 or so. Followed their install video and it took about 10 mins.

I love those clear lights with the white stripes and on blue cars
Thanks! I tried to photoshop up what the result would and decided if I hated it, I d just return to stock. I liked these lights on Mark B's car, and they really compliment the white stripes.

That sounds ideal. Although I prefer the new style kind. 10 mins vs who knows how long to run the cable to the 3rd brake light if you get the lights that switch modes. I wonder if those work like yours do if you just don't connect it to the 3rd brake light, giving you the choice to do it later if you want.

Installed Euro style clear rear taillights, diode dynamics smoked LED side marker, tinted the lower red reflectors. Changed the entire look of back end.

I have shunned the idea of clear lenses for 5 years now....... This is making me change my mind

I would however keep the 18+ style thought

Personally outside of red or black...I think the Euro ones look better in general as they blend better with the colors. I do prefer the 18+ style though

Sorry, guess I am old school, red or black for me. The Euro lights dont do anything for me.

I agree the clear style won't work on many exterior colors, and I ll always be a big fan of red, white, and blue... but you gotta love what ya drive lol

You are correct, Mike...I PS'd the clear on Rapid Red, no workie. Rapid with black stripes needs smoked lenses and I'm wondering if my excellent body shop folks could throw a dark/smoked tinted clear coat on the backside of a set of them? Think that might work?

If not on the OEM red lenses then perhaps on a set of the clear Euro's?

Bought these Lloyd mats to keep me satiated until my wheels can be mounted. Then reso delete. Oh I can't wait. 950 miles on the car now.

Really nice, makes a difference. Got them for only 90 on AM I think. Only complain is that little bit of excess carpet by the push pins for the driver's mat, but I think I'll be able to trim and tuck it.

Nice mats. I have the same ones. They clean up very easily.
