There are two screws underneath the headlight housing that you will need to remove. They are a bitch to get to, but if you have a screwdriver or socket set with a LONG extension, you should be able to get them off. Just crawl underneath the rear bumper and you should be able to see where they're at.

I didn't use a long screwdriver, and I got mine off. Just squeeze your arm around the exhaust and whatever is on the other side of the car, and you'll be fine. It's just really hard to get the screws back in place.

you don't have to take off the bumper, just use a socket with a long extenson go under, and unscrew the 2 screws underneath the lights. I didnt know they were there and i was like wtf it won't come off, smart brother checked underneath.

don't worry about people flaming you...if you like them, get them. That's what I did. I think they have more of an agressive look and actually get more compliments with them than when I redded out my tail lights.

I think its dumb when people always say that's rice and stuff like that. Kind of played out and least you don't have to get people's opinons and approval. It kind of defeats the purpose of you fixing up your car for appearance than others deciding for you.

chongga's got a point, and the term rice is WAY to overused. However, if you do get altezza's make sure they have lots of silicone to seal it up.

Honestly,

It would be a good idea to remove the rear bumper. Only because you could accidentally scratch it trying to remove the lights. Better to be safe than sorry :thumbsup:

:iamwiths:

every pair of altezza's are gonna fog up and get condensation in them..there's just no way of avoiding them.

Personally, I think the crome altezza's on red, black, blue, silver whatever all look absolutely horrible and make your $20,000 car look cheap.

A silver RSX here in town has the gunmetal/CF altezza tailights, and I actually don't mind those all that too much.
