Well, if there's not enough demand to make all-clear tails for the Impreza, I doubt there's enough demand to make Altezza lights either.

Thank God!

Ok, what I dont understand is why everyone wants to take a wonderful car and turn it into something else. You car is not a lexus I presume, get off the bandwagon and go with style. Have you actually seen those things, they are cheaply made and in my opinion, look like total crap! I think next you should go out and buy some M3 mirrors and z3 fenders.
Bring on the flames..

Yes, i heard my supplier said there are altezza tail light for impreza in Hong Kong. Right now, i don't plan to get that yet, because I don't think many people like that. If you really can get more people interested(atleast 25-30), then I will talk to my supplier to see what I should do. If I just ship a few to here, the shipping cost would be a lot.

I do care when I'm behind one and can't see his lights go on in daylight because they are not bright enough to shine through that "clear" (but very thick) glass. When the sun's behind you, it's just as if their taillights were out. That is dangerous. putting light through a red lens does not have the same problem; probably something to do with the glare from clear tails.

if your talking about the altezza lights...it's a clear cover with a nice big red round light in it. so if you can't see that then you must be blind.

Disclaimer: The person of this post cannot be held responsible for voluntarily getting sick all over your Impreza should you decide to equip your vehicle with all-clear rear clusters or Altezza-style tail lights. Not can this person be held responsible for any damage the vomit may cause to your vehicle's exterior should you decide as to be so stupid as to mount the aforementioned aftermarket modifications on your Subaru.

as obnoxious as he was, i agree with matthew. I think those lights look like A55. But if you pay $20k for a car, do what YOU want with it

now, no puking or threats of bodily harm required here - go see a doctor or something if you're having stomach problems.

i personally don't care what people to their car; there's people who think i'm nuts for turbocharging my car and ruining my warranty too, *shrug*. it cuts both ways.

opinions are free. money talks, so if you want to pay for all-clears or altezza tailights, go for it.

I don't care what anyone does to their car either. I do, however, care what they do to my car.

hm. have to agree with Memnoch on this - Altezza tailights should well, stay on Altezzas. Go buy a Lexus IS300 if you want them - it's a nice car, I test drove it.

I much prefer my turbocharged 2.5RS though, even if I still have red/orange tail lights to show to people when I fly by them, including riced-out Imprezas. I've seen a few of those around where I live lately - kind of dissapointing, but oh well. They don't try to race me anymore ever since I let them hear my blow-off valve once.

hey you with those japanstyle lights. i don't think you are from japan so why you trying to make your car like it is. i bet if your car came with clear lenses you'd try to change them to amber. Just cause toyota came out with a good looking tail light idea doesn't mean we can't adapt. look audi, volvo, are going awd so go write them a letter to stay on their own block too. damn i bet if subaru did make them you'd be all up on it. ( oh my gosh i want those tail lights mommy!! )

its called progress deal with it.

ponder that mayfew

Chillin-

All Impreza's are made in Japan, so your first argument doesn't work . I personally think that the 1/2 red and 1/2 clear looks better on any car, and if the car and come with them, I would have left them. Like so many other people have said, it's your car, do what you want with it.
