Raxiom Gen5 Tail Lights question

Hey, everyone. I didn't know if I should post this here or in the 05-10 GT Forum.

So, here is my problem:

Overall, I'm going for a retro look on my 08 GT. However, I am absolutely in love with the Gen5 Tail Lights. I am definitely considering either saving for them or asking for them for Christmas.

However, I am concerned about how the smoked look will go with the rest of my car. Nothing else on my car is smoked or blacked out. I have white rocker stripes, non-tinted windows, and no decklid panel.

I am generally not crazy about the blacked out and smoked out look. But like I said, I absolutely love these Gen5 tail lights.

So, do you think they would still look great even though nothing else on my car is blacked/smoked out?

I really appreciate the advice!

Hey,

Good question and you're in the right section! One of the great things about the Gen5 Taillights is that they're really versatile! They work on a light, or a dark car and pending what kind of mods you're going to do down the road they'll complement each other. So if you're looking to do some chrome accents, or maybe smoked they'll offset the other mods really nicely! I managed to find this shot with no deck panel:

My opinion is they would look great with little to no mods!

Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

Alex

Thanks for the pic, man!

Yeah, I really love the Gen5 Tail Lights. The other option I was considering was to just get sequential tail lights and add chrome trim to give it a retro look. But I can't decide if that would look better or if the Gen 5 Lights would look better. :O

I just put these on my 08 and love 'em! I don't have anything tinted or smoked except the deck filler panel. Go for it! You'll be happy you did. Ten minute install and an absolute perfect fit too.

Also, if you decide to go the sequential route, I have the harnesses for sale and will make you a great deal.

Thanks, man. I think I'm going to go with the Gen 5 lights. I was just concerned that it would distract from the overall throwback theme of the rest of the car. But after looking at tons, and I mean tons of pictures, I think I want them.

Thanks, man! 20 more to go. I actually plan to order quarter window louvers before I get the tail lights. I just have to decide which ones I want.
