Default I want pictures of different tail light options for the NA

I'm browsing through fleabay looking at tail lights (I really hate the stock NA ones, plus mine are faded and in generally horrid condition). I like the dark altezza lights.

See: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/90-97...Q5fAccessories

I don't want it to look super ricey, though I fear any aftermarket lights will look that. Still better than stock.

Anyone got any pics?

One of the local guys got a set of eBay altezzas and used the transparent red spray paint on them, although that means no more white reverse lights, but it is definitely different from stock:

garage vary tails ftw. The only tails besides OEM that I think look halfway decent.

I took my uber-rice chrome altizzas and painted sections of the inside black, keeping the reflector areas chrome so they actually work well. IMHO it looks better than the all-black altezzas (and work better). Followed some procedure for baking headlights found on NASIOC.

All red is pretty cool. I did that to my VW a while ago.

red outs are where it's at. I just smoked my pseudo-carbon ebay altezzas though and i am very happy with how they turned out.

I kinda like those all-red jobs, but I think it would look terrible on my red car. Anyone got a pic of a red na with smoked tail-lights? Did Lev's na have smoked tails?
