apparently the rainbow effect was actually the wrong picture for the product .. the clear is the only one available =( ..
& it has diffusers in the glass/plastic lens .. it really feels/looks like glass, but i'm not entirely sure that it isn't just a really heavy plastic .. much clearer & brighter then our stock lights ..
and w/ it you wouldn't need to cut/bash/etc the headlight mounts to install the clear corners ..

So how many do you think that they would cost to have the headlights and also for the clear corners ?

I'd be in for the corners and the headlights. Maybe the foglights but I'm interested to see what you think about their light output.

I think the altezza is designed for sedan model. I actually saw a Metro sedan about 2 months ago that had altezzas on it. AND I took a picture of it. I just went upstairs to get the photo. OK, I just found it. Comparing the two...

OMG! they're identical! :shock: :shock:

Hey Kris, you should find out from the company if there's a local dealer around here already selling their products, cuz I swear I've already seen them on the street.

They have Altezza for sale on the strictly swift web store and those are working on both sedan and hatchback (mk2. mk3..)

sedan & hatchback tail-lights are totally different .. if they only needed a few sets to place an order i'd probably bring them in .. i found a sedan to compare the light to in my parking lot .. there's no mistaking it ..

OK I fired up the scanner, so here's the picture I took of the Metro with the altezza lights.
(image taken about 2 months ago)

:evil: UGH!! why isn't this working? I've done this before and it worked. Maybe I should know better than to expect IE to work right in Mac OS 9. Strangely, I've never had a problem running Mozilla in Win XP, go figure

OK, I fixed it, I'm using Mozilla for Mac OS 9 (hmm, runs faster than the one on Win XP. Oooo, it supports Navigation Services, nice :D ) It looks like IE either had some conflicting security settings or some kind of malfuction with its Java library. Either way I'm gonna delete it, and never using it ever again.

They should sell a the middle section in a kind of clear plastic also instead of red, that would look better

So n1tro, what would be the prices?

I would be interested in fog lamps, maybe headlights if they would be clear (no diffusers in the glass).

Is there any chance for them to build altezzas lights for the "normal" swift (ie NOT sedan/convertible)??

thanks
6mon

nope, unless someone has a few thousand dollars to order 100+ pairs of lights .. it's hard enough getting a group buy together for a few stickers ...
i still have the samples if anyone has any serious interest in this.

Did the samples can be fitted perfectly or missings some things to have them on a car ? And also, have you a pair or only one ?

only 1 of each, so they're of no real use unless you want to check them out prior to ordering hundreds ...
also the main headlights are setup to use H4 bulbs i believe.
