if you are talking about altezza taillights, then im sorry, they dont exist. There is one picture floating around where someone photoshopped them in. The only taillight mods that have really happened are switching to LEDs and making the side rear lights either running/break lights or running/turn signals

I'd settle for stock lights that didn't accumulate moisture between the red outer layer and the "prizimed" inner layer (anyone know of a special tool to pop the red layer off without chewing things up?)

Did you say someone has done LED taillights on the SVX? I need to know who! I want to talk to them. I have been working on developing an LED system for the taillights. I would like to see how they did it. If you know, please share...thanks.

Jwherm,
I think Lwin has done a LED mod on his...he's only a couple of hours up the road from you (if I remember my Illinois geography correctly...)

LED Tail lights ran me 150 including shipping. The good thing is that they are quick to come on thus increasing the distance between you and the guy in the SUV behind you...

I will do a how-to soon. Just give me a little time since I am really busy doing a ton of other stuff.
