04-06 hatches had red brakes and amber turns and the clear reverse.
04-06 i model sedans had all red tails (which did indeed look gross, because they looked cheap)
Where the 04-06 sedans had the same red and amber tails.

But I don't care; IMO, all red taillights look pretty.

Car for car, they look far greater than any other option by comparison.

Do you think red vinyl tint over red sedan tails would look good?

Bought, not Built

I think it would, but I'm not sure about decresed visibility. I'm sure it wouldn't affect it too much.

i installed silvertips for the turn signals so there is no color at all unless i press the brakes or signal to turn.

Ah right, they introduced the clear ones in 06 if you got the upper models... I guess?

Otherwise we all only had this; which is why mine are red.

My '04 was the GFX GT so it had the red tail light and orange turn and clear reverse. I didn't think the LED tails came out until the sub gen '07 GT trims.

those aren't the LEDs, the LEDs didn't come until 07, those are just the all-clears.
