    the altezzas look too "ricey" imo, but at the same time the stocks look boring

    stock, cause I use to have those lights on my Nissan way back in 2002 when they where fashionable. Now they are old schoolish, sort of like seeing people tint flames on their side windows.....

    Altezza style has come and gone. Be careful when you tint your stocks. I was driving behind a Tacoma the other day who tinted their stock tails and it was hard to see the brake lights during the day.

    LOL, yes well, saw a full size Chevy truck lowered with 24's and he had the ghost flames on the hood and the window tints flamed!!!!! LMAO!

    I sell shoes for a living and most people I work with can't believe people wear the Ed Hardy's. They are just way too busy looking and stuff. Well, to me and this is only me, this sort of fits in that category.
