Taillights

I'm sure this ? has been asked somewhere, but where can I find aftermarket taillights for the 05 rsx type-s (i think there the same for the non-type-s)

Yeah they're the same, but I've never seen an 05-06 with after market tail lights. I'm not sure they even make them

i've seen them on 02-04 rsx but not on the 05-06.

why change it when it looks nice already?

I believe the only other option besides stock tails is the JDM tails.

personally i think the USDM look better than the JDM, but thats just me. i would stick with the OEM taillights, if you could find any aftermarket they'd surely be ricy and tacky.

Or, like, you could take it to the dealer and have them replaced under warranty like I did. Unless you did something to break the seal.

It's not covered under warranty? I had mine start getting condensation in it, took it to the dealer and they replaced it for free.

I don't know about Cloud, but mine probably started taking on water because of how often I wash it.
