OK ... Let me summarise the emoticon responses that usually follow any Altezza post (coz some people are not capable of giving a constructive reply when the word Altezza is used)
1. :puke:
2. :thumbup:
3. :)

I like the black FK tailights on dark colored cars but dont like the chrome tailight look - I think chrome is better suited to accent a car feature rather than be the feature itself.
Here's a pic of my B5 with the black FK tailights...

I do like the black look. Where did you get those? I already have plenty of chrome on my car.

I can't stand the Altezza look. To me, it makes the car look like a transformer with all the chromed plastic. Something smoked with a lot of LEDs like Lincoln tail lights would be my ideal brake light housing...

Just cause im a soo tired of seeing a hundred freekin percent of this club hate on these poor threads. I think those black ones are decent. Put up some pics after you put them on your car, or just pm a pic to me that way fifty people won't hop the band wagon and tell you how horribly gay blah blah blah they are.

The clear plastic edges are what makes them look cheap in my opinion. Perfect solution would be to dark tint the area surrounding the actual lights. I think that would actually look pretty cool.

To be quite honest, a lot of rice rockets out there put them on. So in a sense if they are put on a Passat, it kinda looses the elegant look of an European sports sedan. That is part of the reason I do not care for the tail lights of the B5.5, it has the round circles in them. But if you like them then don't let anyone stop ya. Have fun. :thumbup:
