    Do these look to rice?

    Allright, Im about to buy yet another set of turn signal housings, but i think its time to replace the headlight housings (all scuffed and yellowed) too. Im thinking about getting a set of smoked housings w/the led halo lights. However, I'm not sure if I would then consider my car "rice" or "wheat" based on a previous thread I saw here. These are the lights



    Im just on the fence about them. But here is the car now

    and I want to get rid of the cheesy headlight covers.
    Lemme know what you all think.

    Thanks

    Look pretty cool, actually. Those halos will look really nice. I don't think that's ricey. Now if it was chromed out... then that would be another story.

    almost like mine. I love the way they look on my NBM car. I really can't stand the stock head and taillights on the LS1 cars.

    Wow, just no love for the blackouts around here. Thanks for all the input. What about the tail lights? The only ones I see that are different really are riced out, altezzas. Are blackouts on the back just as bad on the taillights? I thought those looked pretty clean



    Yes or no?

    It looks good!
    For me, I'd say:

    1. : '93-'96 taillights
    2. : any other taillights with blackouts
    3. : '97-'02 taillights

    I don't mind the covers, but I absolutely hate the GTS badging on them, I think it kills the whole idea of "clean." Always thought it was their flaw, I'd try to find a way to get it off of there.

    It's only a sticker, so they come right off.

    The two small lights (one on top of the other in the middle) are just reflectors. Stupid huh?
