I had no idea that the clear taillights where available for order from the dealerships. I'm surprised! Did you ask them if they could get the blacked-out JDM ones?

I can't wait to see the pics of your car after this!

naw i forgot to ask.:( but my parts will be here monday mourning:)
i think this is a good deal since it's at my dealership also.
the lights are listed for $290 at dealership and got them down to $232 + tax (not too bad) where as they are 219 + s/h at Finishline Performance. and the Sprots Grille was listed as $200 + tax and got htem down to 166 + tax, where as the Sports Grille is 199 at various sites.:) sooooo qwik comparison.


Sports Grille:
Dealership = $166 + $11.62tax = $177.62
Online = $199 + $6 s/h = $205
difference = 27.38

Clear Tail Lights:
Dealership = $232 + $16.24tax = $248.24
Online = $219 + $6 s/h = $225
difference = -$23.24

so it's about the same price in all but i felt like tryin ta wheel n deal.;)

So that's parts only or also installation? Will you install them yourself?

I don't think they would be too hard to install... I think the tails are just new lenses. Am I correct?

They should be easy to install but it depends on how they were designed. I changed the tails in my Nissan ALtima and they had a seal that I had to replace which was sticky and a mess, but not difficult. But my buddy owns an eclipse and his was screw on and screw off so you never know until you do it yourself. Let us know though keep us updated.

What quality issues? Does that mean that all Japanese and European models have inferior tail lights? I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't able to get those...depends on how different the clear tail lights are for every country (to meet regulations and stuff).

After all it's too bad for you. :(

Yeah, that is a weird subject since they're already standard on the european models. I can see if they were made by APC or some other junk company like that but not if it's OEM. I wonder, does anyone know if the european model is a direct duplicate of the US version, body wise that is. If it is then just ask someone on here that lives over there to get a price quote for you and purchase it through them. I'm sure someone will help you out everyone seems pretty cool here.

You gotta love standard features in some markets across the globe. I would have thought that Mazda made the tail lights all the same. I was suprised to see conventional 'red' tail lights on one of the members here. I don't know which I would prefer, but I do like the clear ones

why don't you guys just switch with the guys across sees if you want them that bad. If he want's the all red tails and you want the clear then just pay for shipping on your end and it's an even swap!
