Default Clear tail lights

I need help from all of the saturn owners. I would like to see APC make clear tail lights for the sc, sl, and ions. if you all could email apc and flood their email to let them know that we would like to see them make the first clear tail light for saturn. that would be great. thanks.

I saw a new RX330 today and it apparently comes with those clear, rice-a-roni tail-lamps. Who the frig would want to drive a 35k spute with those ugly things on there???

The RX-300 was the FIRST car to have those type of rear lights. Don't knock it. Knock everyone who copied it.

I will also email them to NOT make those lights.

Well, the rice market made them before the IS300 and RX300 started to use some. The ones on the RX330 are really bright white and are not nearly as mainstream as those on the RX300.

I think it would be kind of cool to have a cover tyo go over the tail lights like the ones on the newer model trans-ams. Kind of a mesh made out of circles.

Or am I diving into rice-land again with that one?

What is wrong with the stock lights. Everyone is in such a hurry to mess with the tail lamp design.

Stop that!!

dang, now I have to clean my keyboard....UGLY AS SIN!

oh, what year did the Toyota Altezza come out?? I know that IT was the first car I'd ever seen with them. I can only say that it came out right before Gran Turismo 2 came out. (that's the first time I had seen it)

Now perhaps I should send the message that all the TRUE saturn fans want to send. We love our cars, and we don't want to make them look (and sound) like ghetto cr@p by putting ugly @$$ lights and huge spoilers and weed-eater mufflers.

A good saturn has a sweet sounding cat-back exhaust, no aftermarket spoiler or any of that crap. Also, some nice 17"s with lowering springs. I'm serious folks, it will make you drool all over yourself. Even a wagon! hehe

how about just letting someone do what ever they want to their car. i think clear tail lights would look kinda weird on a saturn but if thats what he wants to do, how cares. everyones tastes are different.

We like change, but we HATE looking like ricers. All the more reason to not buy Altezza brake lights. For the $200 or so they'll cost, I can save that money toward, say, a cat-back exhuast system, or a header, or suspension parts.

No offense, but I think that if someone wants to change a part of there car by doing something others might consider "ricy" that does not make them not a TRUE SATURN FAN. That is just patantly dumb. What the heck is a TRUE Saturn fan anyway?

I am not a TRUE Saturn fan if I want to change the back lights? Give me a break. That's kind of like saying you arent a TRUE steak fan because you put some barbeque sauce on it, "ruining" the true taste of the steak.

I am not a big fan of mega-rice, either. All show and no go is silly, but still.
