By euro do you mean the ones off an european Cougar or like the ones found on Lexus cars labeled "European". The ones for the Lexus are not made for the cougar (but there has been some talk of some company making them), you also wont get the ones off an eclipse to fit with out structural modification.

Thanks for the input; and by euro i mean the ones with the "silverish" background behind the lights; a chrome set would work maybe even clear; i'm just tired of the complete red design of the stock lights.

you mean altezzas? like all the little honda boys have driving around? yeah, not made for cougars. Euro tails for cougars, you can find on www.customcougars.com, and they are nothing like the altezzas. but check them out, they are pretty nice.

euro tails for cougars are more ugly than the stock look. why would you want to splash a little orange in among the color scheme of a well-planned car theme. most people want to get rid of the orange headlight lenses. especially for the price...utterly rediculous.

You guys are forgetting that the Euro's are apparently brighter too. Ive seen them, and i guess they are a little brighter but not a couple hundred dollars worth. People seem to be doing ok with knowing when im stopping, so the stock lights are working out fine for me, plus they dont have orange in them.

I've had the Euros for quite some time now... they are much brighter than OEM. Nobody was insulting any choices you made PeDl.... so it would be appreciated you keep your narrow opinions to yourself.

So now if we dislike something we're not allowed to say it?:crazy: He was only saying that he thinks the lights are ugly and they arent worth the price.

I simply meant you can say you don't like it, as was stated in another thread in Vid/Pics not long ago, saying 'Not my style, but if it suits you' or something to that effect is much better that 'utterly rediculous' - what is the point of saying something like that, except to basically insult those that have done the mod?

I have them and they are way brighter. Plus the diamond pattern is much more appealing than the simple horinzontal pattern. To each their own, but the Euro tails are the way to go.

I did a search and can't find the picture anymore, but there was a picture on here of a Cougar with altezza tail lights... The car was in a group shot of like 5 cars. Maybe they were custom made though, cause I don't know of anyone that makes them.

CATerina is the guy who has the clear tails. They werent actual altezza's, but they were clear tails. The red had been removed and covered with plexiglass.

01blkcat - sorry you didn't like what I had to say, just stating my opinion, but it doesn't really matter...does anyone have pics of what you are calling "clear" or altezza" tails? Those must look f'ing sweet....

Ya, that is the one! What happened to the pics of that car? The picture that I saw was from kind of far away, but you could still tell they were altezzas. I looked all over and couldn't find it again. :confused:

I wish a company would make a REAL euro tail for the cougar...those would look sick on our cars. If anyone can find a pic of those few custom jobs, I'd really like to check 'em out....

This is the only pic i could find of the CLEAR tails CATerina had made. I will search for the Switz Cougar with the Eclipse tails in a bit.
