Just wanted to know if anyone had any custom tail lights on their 200SX. I'm interested in getting some for my 200SX, but don't wanna have to go through MAJOR modifications. Sorry that I have to get on this topic, but does anyone have/know of a 200SX with Civic tail lights? If so, what mods were done? I'm liking the Altezza Skyline tail lights and wondered about getting these on my '97 200SX. Again, sorry I had to bring up THAT word... Pleeeeeeez forgive me! But hey, I'm new to the forum and a female so be nice : ) Any other ideas or input about custom tail lights for the 200SX would be appreciated.

AFAIK, 98 is the only year the tails were bubbled.

If you want a picture of clears just IM me at SR20SER on aol or at Gu57ido on aol. This guy has them, he is on the board I think. But I had painted my 96 taillights red where the orange was. Is your car an SE-R??? You can also email me at those names @aol.com if you would like.

Dude dont degrade the 200sx down to honda standards by getting clear tails. If you want to look like a honda go buy one. Spend that money where it should go, speed not looks.

If you're referring to me, the original person who posted the topic I'm not *trying* to degrade the 200SX. I'm not interested in the clear tail lights from Honda. I am *trying* to make my car look good. I'm not trying to make it look fast either... Honestly, speed is not my main concern right now. I have the 1.6L engine and even with the limited upgrades that I have now there is no major difference in speed. My money is going to the right place for ME... for looks. I like the way my car looks and will continue to change it. I realize that 90% of the people on the board are far more concerned with how fast their 200SX is rather than how good it looks. In case this just isn't so for me, sorry. Have you seen the 200SX on import-fan.com with the Honda S200 tail lights? Just b/c someone likes the Honda tail lights doesn't necessarily mean they want to look like a Honda. Again, as I stated in my original post I didn't wnat to go THERE, but I do like the Altezza Skyline style tail lights... not the car it's made for.

whoa!! first off, the tails for the PT Cruiser are Altezzas. secondly the only reason i got my clears (well, besides the fact that it looks good w/ the carbon fiber trunk trim) is cuz they don't make skyline style for us. like she said, performance donesn't have to be the first thing done to enhance our cars.

It shouldn't matter what mods we do first. Its all up to what the person decides and what situation their in...for instance, When I had a Neon I did an exhaust and intake first. With the SE-R, I did Stereo mods first.

Sometimes it all comes down to what you can fit in your budget.

I gotta agree guys..I mean we see it all the time on this forum...people making negative comments about people that spend money on things that are considered ricer. I figure we are all enthusiast here. Some more for speed..others more cosmetics. (Some like both....like me..he,he,he) But I figure...to me the bottom line should be..if you have nothing helpful to post on a particular subject..leave it at that. I understand that this is a free forum and you have the right to post your opinions..but think of it this way...If everybody we're to say and do whatever they wanted because they had the right too..the world would be in a much worse situation then it is now. I guess im just kinda emotional over whats been happening over the last couple days....but to me it seems that if everyone would take the time out to respect and think of how they're words or actions would affect others the world would be a better place. Im not meaning to place blame on anyone or talk ish about those who have posted unhelpful or degrading post. Just wanted to say that no matter if you want to drive a all show 200sx/Honda/whatever or a balls out fast Sentra/Ford/whatever...Just remember..you may not like it or it may not appeal to you but just because of that does it make it wrong? I thinks its never been said better than, " DO ON TO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD WANT DONE TO YOU " Sorry for the long post guys...

My vote would be for lights resembling those of a Mazda RX2, 1958 Edsel Villager wagon or a 1970 Ford Mustang. YMMV.

I have to agree with you all pretty much. Some people like looks, (and there's really nothing wrong with that when it all boils down) and some people go for speed. Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. One thing we do have in common is that we all obviously love our Nissans, and support is, well, support, no matter how you view it. Don't let the bad apples ("ricers") out there ruin it for the rest of us.
