TLX clear tail light

The Chinese version of the TLX has clear tail light: http://www.acura.com.cn/assets/image...big/wai_03.jpg

Any clue whether those can be ordered somehow and how much? Thanks!

Based on a similar situation in another forum, they will probably only be available in that market. You'd have to find someone to export them for you. You may get lucky enough to find them on EBay. I havent seen any yet though.

Not enough of a change for it to be worth it for me.

On my old Mazda6, North America got tail lights that bulged out to meet our standards, while the rest of the world got smooth tail lights that followed the body-work of the rear. That was a worthy upgrade. Laughably, the guys on the other side wanted our tails so that they could look custom too. I guess it's just perspective.

It's probably not something I would do either but some people like the subtle differences.

Looks much better than what we got in North America in my opinion. I'm a huge fan of clear signal lights like that.

I hate it when manufacturers make us use red lights for signals or use brake lights as signal lights. But I understand that's because the DOT in USA is dumb like that.

I tend to agree that the solid red makes signal lights harder to see...for the few who use them of course. I think a clear signal stand out much more......but the price to do the change (I'm assuming as we haven't seen the cost) isn't worth it in my opinion.
