Because they belong on imports, not Saturns.

Sorry, but that kind of question will usually get a lot of negative feedback. There just isn't a market for altezza-type lights on Saturns because so few people would actually buy them. That's why they aren't made.

there's one company that wants to get a buy-in going...don't know the place, but heard about it....nobody wants them...so there won't be any lights made...sorry...make your own or adapt some from a car that's similar...honda accords (don't know which years) are similar to ours...you will have to spend a lot of time and money to get them to work though...

a better option would be to go get some tint paint made by VHT..i don't recall how much it costs, but you could tint your taillights...i think that looks really nice personally...just my opinion...

I agree with you Pimped92SL1, tinting the taillights looks very nice. I think it is a great alternative to the altezza bug. Also, it is something that you don't see too ofter on other cars. I vote you tinting, or at least look into it. I am sure there are members on the forum that could show you some pics they have seen.

Exactly... but that's not for us to judge. Everyone has different tastes, and some people might like them. People need to quit with their negative feedback on here - a car is a palette for the driver to express themselves on.
I'm not a fan of euro tails, to be honest, on any vehicle - be it a VUE, SL2, Civic, or Accord, but some people like them.

I was just stating my opinion. And a lot of people happen to share that opinion, so I gave the original poster a warning to such.

There are actually altezzas available for the VUE, but I don't think anyone has actually bought them. I don't personally know of anyone that's got them - I've only seen the black ones.

I believe you are referring to customsaturn.com. They have a buy-in for altezzas. Their web page isn't functioning right when you try to send them an email though. They have a phone number, you can call and ask them and see what is going on. (863)-651-8248

i should state that i'm not totally against them...just prefer not to see them on saturns.

i do like them on the right cars...especially the stock IS300's

anyway, just my opinions and i think that tinting them would look better (that is what i'm going to try...i'm going to U Pull tomorrow to see if they have a 2nd gen coupe to take the lenses off, then i don't have to mess with mine in case they get messed up).
