Question Optional coloured tail lights?

Bit of a random subject I know but I've seen a fare few pictures of the 86 with all red tail lights.

At first I thought it was a photoshop job.





Now the 86 has been spotted on the road with red tails which looks to be a legit photo.


I know it's not exactly something people care about and its purely an aesthetics thing but I find the car looks much better with the all red tails.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

All pictures are linked from the discussion thread on Supraforums but I have no idea what sites these pictures were found, either way the blue 86 doesn't look like no amateur photoshop to me.

Sorry for being new here

That's a shame, I thought it may of been an option.

Looks much better.

It's so easy to do yourself. It's not that big of a deal.

Different markets will have more red taillights...look for the Scion FRS to have the more red taillights...hopefully...both BRZs that they showed had the same taillights as the JDM 86.

In the US, orange front and red rear reflectors are required by law (DOT).

^this

The US will still get clear lights, but with red reflectors. Honestly, I'd rather have the clear tail lights so I can either smoke or red them out easier.
