Well I just put my clears on last night :) but the two lights on the trunk exterior, the white part is kinda faded and doesn't match the crystal clear look of the rear tail lights. Who sells these and what are they called?

I've seen cars that match up perfectly...but I dunno. Maybe 99' 323's have funky reverse lights :dunno:

Same problem here...it bothers me but I dont know if I want to drop 80 bucks or so for new revers lights. Its tough to say if its that noticable to others, or just me bc its my car?

mike1r, other people have noticed it already on my car. And I have definatly noticed it cus I'm anal about my car. I think its worth it, as long as the new OEM match well.

there was a similar thread a few weeks ago and some people talked about how cleaning them might help but someone tried and it didnt seem effective to him. Its probably more of a daydream but maybe a group buy could save us some loot bc im sure alot of people would be interested....who knows. why cant they just match dammit!

If the outside plastic lens is just slightly scratched making them look fadded, a little 3M Imperial Hand Glaze goes a long way. It take out very fine scratches and make them look new.

your not alone.

thread..

Mine aren't too bad, but it is noticiable in direct sunlight. What I'm wondering though is if I can replace my 323ci's reverse lights with the newer style reverse lights that have the little white square surrounded by red.

yeah you can use '04 reverse lenses. they are a direct swap. i personally dont like the '04's (i feel it makes the pattern too civic-ish) but hey if you are looking to upgrade and get some different than what you had, that would be the way to go.

My brother mentioned doing this as well. I'm going to try it one of these days before I cough up the money for new replacements...it'll take me forever to save up my tip money for 'em anyway. :tsk:
