What's ugly about them? I wonder how effective they are at shining bright with a good focus?

Thats my car jerk! What the heck? :D

Picture of the car is the label on the package.

Lights are ok. They don't go with the car IMO. Round with wedge car does not fit.
Probably why you don't see many with this upgrade!

I have seen them at night and would say they are similar to Euro spec lamps, not FL euro lamps. Name slips my mind. You have them steve!
I don't know..to each their own I guess?

They look like generic 94 to 01 integra lites. Too rice for my taste. But thats my opinion.

Just kidding but still wonder how good they would project.

Anything has to better then stock.
A candle and a magnifying glass work better than the US lamps.

As I mentioned they are just as good as the Euro lamps before the FL version Bosch, Elma's. Now I remember!

Well... another way of looking at it is that they look like classic 70's rally-car lights, like the four attached to grille of an original Mini Cooper :)

So I don't see them as 'rice' at all, but I agree with Jason - they're just a bit too large and circular - I reckon one small and one larger light (a la Mercedes) would be more attractive.

Anyway I am saved the agony of deciding whether to bid, because they will be LHD-dip and thus no use to me ;) I'm sure RHD aftermarket lamps are even rarer...

Not only are they missing the corner light lenses, but it looks like they are missing a lens over the main lights too? That would make the black part look like the picture, where they are installed in the car. I wonder how rare these are in other parts of the world and if these are for right or left side of the road driving? They are not pretty for sure, but probably work well and are no doubt are a true upgrade in illumination.

I think he said in listing that he had lens for parking/turn signal lamps. Wonder if there is/was a clear protective cover tp gp over lamps.

My friend put a set of BMW lights very similiar to these in his Milano and they have clear covers over them.

Well out here in CA everybody and there mom has those style lights in there Honda. Matter of face there some tail lights that look like these lights for the 90 to 93 Accord. Not Italian as far as I am concerned if you put these lights all you would need then is a big body kit and a Folgers coffee can muffler. Oh and the Voltron rear spoiler!:eek:

I thought that was a duck call muffler (aka fart can). OK, I know be kind to your web footed friends.

Guess those lights give new meaning to "four eyes" but if you were to silver out black eye surround and clear cover them with flat lens like Bimmer I wonder how they would look?

They were an OEM setup in France back in the day. Everyone painted the base the same color as the body. FYI...
