Wow... that defies words. That is one step above bolting an ironing board on your trunk lid.

I just saw those tail lights on Ebay earlier... yeah, they don't look nice. There are a couple other LED tails that look pretty nice. I might save up for a set... then clear the sidemarkers on my car... and it will be totally clear.

LOL, those lights look like a demon got caught in a gum machine, ouch!!!! I saw a similar spoiler on anothe car and it looked pathetic as I don't think the machine it was on was capable of triple digit travel, but then I could be wrong.....perhaps a Q ship???

Yes. Very true. but my tail lights are the same brand and make, just not clear! I have the RED leds with chrome/silver bulbs inside the blinkers to get rid of the amber color. Looks pretty good this way. But the version this guy has is silly looking.

You wouldn't have ever known that you guys have the same brand and make if you didn't mention anything.

I know, but I just wanted to let people know that if you select the right one and do a little adjusting to it, it can look very nice.

Here is another angle. If this guy got rid of the ugly wing and those tail lights his car would be realy nice looking. To bad he doesn't know any better.

I beg your pardon, but I think you are. Why else would you bring up someones race when you are talking about a car?

Might want to read the forum rules again, btw we have a lot of asian Pcar owners here that have great taste.

Sorry I didn't mean to sound that way. I just wonder when the term RICER comes up if that offends them too? What I meant was that the younger import scene has allot of Asian influences in the designs of their cars and body kits, i.e. spoilers and wings too. I will edit my earlier post.

I do not know if this guy is Asian or not. But I would put my money down on a bet that he is not German.

Living outside of North America for a long time, I am a little confused about this whole "ricer" concept anyway. What motivates people to do this to an otherwise perfectly good car? I understand when I see Hondas with big stupid looking spoilers on them. I figure that it is owned by some 16 year old who could not afford a real car so he decided to make his piece of **************** look different than all the other pieces of ****************. But why do this to a Porsche? Do they really think it looks cool or adds some sort of value/performance to the car? Does this help them meet girls? Could someone explain?
