Yeah it's called "VHT Nite Shades", available through Summit. I've heard nothing but good stuff about it.

More of a personal preference. I have yet to see a set that looks good or even is made well. Plus we arent in Europe or even own a European car. Thats just my feelings about it though.

Altezza would be derived from a JDM lexus car or as we know it a Lexus IS 300. Thats were the name branding on Altezza came from. The car in japan was a Lexus Altezza. Not from a European car...that is what most people that dislike altezzas or JDM cars call them, Euro-tails. Its personal preference and the only cars that have euro-tails or altezzas are 06+ models or 5 door 08+ models. Its just a visual thing. Its like hating on this car for having near euro-tails:

I kind of agree with you John, especially if you look at the Morette rears for our cars.
