I just didn't really like the look they would make with my color. I like the lights themselves, just not on my Impala.

Plus, a lot of my friends, upon seeing the lights and hearing the idea that I'd put them on my car, said they were ghetto. So that also shot down that option!

Freaking love those tails! Those are a huge improvement over the stocks.
Those are the exact ones I have pegged to put on my SS.

I got a set from carid but had to return them. The headlights shooting up to high and no one could adjust them right , then they sold me HID's for them and they didn't even fit.

I actually originally got the smoked ones, and I liked them, but I didnt love them, ya know what I mean? So since they burned up I sent them back and got clear ones and liked them better.

Minor mod, but worth sharing. I got LED turn signal bulbs in amber. Naturally, I had to install resistors, but they work perfectly.

The pic looks a little dim but they're decently bright.
