I'm not sure about LEDs, but I know they have aftermarket "Euro" type lights... They have the clear lens and then inside, each light has it's own little coloured lens... I think you can get them with painted black or chrome inserts... Check ebay because I've seen them there.

No, OEM-style LED lights don't exist for the G4. You'll need to make your own.

And those "Euro" lights described above are a misnomer. They originated from Japan on the Toyota Altezza (Lexus IS). Here's a picture of it:



You can order one with the chromed part in black or gray. The aren't LEDs though. They use the standard incandescent bulbs.

yeah a found a werb site after a nap. They sel them in the Black the crome and the smoke. here the link. ithing the black would go perfertly wit the G4 Centennial Headlight Mod. but i have a red car like in the pictur on the corme tailight page. im suprised how good its looks. i d be hapy with that. the websit also duse fake wood dash decals, in lots of colors. that lloks like it be a nice upgrade too.

so the question is should i get the crome euro tailights or the black ones and do the Centennial headlight Mod.

Be careful with those tail lights, they are not good quality. Almost everyone I've seen get them has complained about them leaking and just having overall poor build quality. Not to mention, IPCW, the company that makes the lights, doesn't exactly have the best reputation in the world.

I have a red Gen 4 too and I did the centennial headlight mod and I was thinking about doing the black altezza housing. I had my taillights tinted already, but I'm afraid of getting rearended because they dim the bulbs.

Would it be possible to add some silicone to the surrounding of the IPCW taillights so they can withstand leaking more?

Don't do the fake wood dash decals...they look HORRIBLY cheap in person - exactly like fake wood decals. If you want wood trim, get the factory stuff.

I don't particularly care for the Altezza taillights...IMHO they just don't go with anything on the car.

Those altezza's are NOTORIOUS for yellowing their lenses and Breaking/cracking easilly. All of the Honda's and Ricers around here that have those "euro" lights have them either yellowed to HELL or broken/cracked/fogged up lenses.
