HI I've always been interested in updating the rear lights on the coupe but never found anything that I really liked. Gregs Racing Parts in the US has a great kit that's available for the Lotus range of cars but are just too large to fit the coupe at 120mm Diameter. So neccesity being the mother of invention I decided to make my own. I sourced the Hella LED lights that many have used from Spareto and went ahead modifying them to suit my tastes. I added an outer park light LED ring and kept the indicator lights below.

Sorry to be a bit of a 'party-pooper' ... and each to their own etc. but I'm not sure that they actually enhance the Coupé rear end!

I rather like the standard fitment, and there's not issues with brightness, so .......


Mind you, I'm sure others probably feel the same about the add-on body panels on mine ( my only excuse is that I didn't fit them!)

I'm with Paul. Are you really a better car stylist than Chris Bangle?

Over the years I've seen many different design rear light units for the Coupé and I've never been a massive fan because they look just to different to OE, so I works with a chap and had clear lenses manufactured many moons ago and organised a small group buy which sold straight away but costs were too high to do a second run but I kept a set for my LE which are still in use today.

And I never said I was a better designer than Chris Bangle
I just think the rear lights are probably the most boring part
Of this car

Hello Fila

I like them as well !

You are right. We all do things to our cars, and some folk may not like it.
It doesn't make it wrong.

It's all about having fun !

Hi Fila, I see you're from Oz; we used to have some coupé owners from your side of the world on this forum, do you know any?

And so you should, they look smart. I don't think it'd work for every colour of coupe. But yours is more of a 'modern' colour so can carry that more modern light style IMO

Hi,
the last Fiat meet down here in Melbourne there were only 4 coupes at the show but I believe there are possibly 10 in the country. I think mine is the only VIS in Oz.

I agree, they wouldn’t work on every colour car, but they really suits yours. I think you’ve done a fantastic job 👍

What about some photos of the rest of the car ?

I'm sure that it will look wonderful

Now that is a lovely looking car.

No wonder you are proud of it.

Thank you, it needed a bit of mechanical work to get it right, makes it harder in Oz as there are so few and hardly any parts.

Those Alfa wheels look really good - the first non-standard wheels I've seen that get near the originals.

I still don't like the rear lights .... but the rest of the car looks really good and yes, the wheels don't look out of place at all. I think they look better because of the colour of the car.

With just 52,000 on the clock you should have plenty of happy driving ahead!
