What do you think of these tails?

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  What do you think of these tails?

So I came across this one Civic from Norway. I think the Euro tuning scene is unique, and I like it. What do you guys think of these LED tails? I think they would look pretty good, almost matching the JDM wing.

Here's the link to them on ebay.

Here are the ones on her now.

I really dont care for the euro style lights. I'd stick with your stockers.

I like 'em both...but the euro ones more probably. And that sig is the bomb diggity.

Thanks all for your comments. I'll be sticking with the same style of tailights I have on her now.

Although an all motor setup would be sweet, I've actually made up my mind on what I'm gonna do next after the suspension and brake upgrades. Only thing is I haven't decided if I want to keep it low profile or flaunt it like the following examples.

Anything but discrete

Those are damn sexy man, and its called personalization do what you want if it makes YOU happy! :thumbs:

We'll see bro, right now some shocks and a brake overhaul would make me happy.

posted by  elchango36

Ahh man get some nice nitrogen shocks and some smooth and sexy rear disc $800 conversion kits :wink2:

posted by  99integra

Eh, who needs rear discs. Fronts do all the real work anyhow. Screw rear disc conversion and get air ride suspension.

posted by  PontiacFan27

Haha it would make that lil honda stop more of on a dime than it already does, and air ride sounds orgasmic!

posted by  99integra

LOL, the air ride would be a nightmare with all the camber issues. I'm gonna get some tokico illumina adjustable shocks for now and down the road, some full race coilovers.

posted by  elchango36

i knew someone who put air suspension on a car and it travels so smooth over rough roads etc, plus they are lighter than normal metal set ups!

p.s, i like your sig, real cool

air ride?!? on a honda?!? yuck! stick with coils. all i picture when i hear airride honda is http://www.physiologics.com/vf/healthnotes/HN77/HN77_english/Food_Guide/Ric e.jpg

Uh..wooden bowl and chopsticks? :laughing:

Rear discs look nicer through big "rims" though! :laughing:

posted by  Cliffy

rear disc = good... drums suck... found that one out the hard way...

posted by  mazda6man

I couldn't agree with you more. That's why I'll be doing a GSR front and rear brake swap in the not so distant future (along with Hawk pads, powerslot rotors, and stainless steel brake lines). :wink2:

posted by  elchango36

I personally like the tails you have now more. Much cleaner look..on ur car they would look tacky

posted by  newyorker

See I'm not so sure. The only real way to tell would be to put them one. However if I did that I'd have to change headlights as well. I'm thinking HID retrofitted OEM headlights. But like I said, all that has to wait for brakes, suspension, and an under-the-hood cosmetic makeover. :wink2:

posted by  elchango36

^my thoughts exactly... HIDs for sure... but after suspension. thats my plans for both the civ and the cress

posted by  mazda6man

Rice...right. Air ride is a great technology. Allows you to change from show-car low to the ground street-car high off the ground and stiff race handling to soft speed bump friendly grocery getter suspension settings. As with all things in this hobby, the ability to tune every aspect to suit your specific needs is always a great thing.

*Cough* Coilovers *Cough* :wink2:

posted by  elchango36

is that what those hightadjustable threaded things, and progressive springs are for? lol

posted by  mazda6man

Drum brakes 'used' to be more powerfull than discs....they just fade quicker!

posted by  Cliffy

Coilovers can only lower a car. It does very little to change the stiffness.

Progressive springs dont affect ride height.

posted by  PontiacFan27

something like my grand prix would benefit amazingly from an air-ride setup


elchango's honda probably handles nicely the way it is

posted by  nighthawk

Coilovers allow you to choose how low you want your car to be at a moments notice. Fully adjustable shocks allow you to choose how stiff or soft you want the ride quality to be also at a moments notice. You could have your car set up a little high for bumpy nasty pothole ridden streets and then in 20 mins time have it set up super low for the track.

posted by  elchango36

You can do that with airride. Only you can do it with a remote, you dont have to bust out an adjustment tool and get yourself dirty.

Reliability. I have friends with air ride and I've had to go run out in the middle of nowhere to help them jack up their car so they can replace a chewed up hose, popped airbag, or something else that for one reason or another went bad. My personal favorite has to be welding an air tank together on the side of the road just so we could get the car off the ground (couldn't get a jack under the car). I'd rather avoid the headaches (and added weight of the air tank), and be a little less comfortable with coilovers.

posted by  elchango36

^yep! weights also the big factor... misc. hoses that can get messed up, popped bags... you cant pop a spring

posted by  mazda6man

Precisely. I can make it home with a blown shock, but a popped bag??? I don't think so.

^ meens for a fun bumpy ride...
