Altezza euro tail lights need to be rewired for SVT use?

Hi all,

I have a new 2004 ZX3 SVT and i was looking at getting some altezza tail lights for it. I see on the website, though, that they cannot be used with SVT models without some wiring mods. Does anyone know anything about this?

http://www.matrixracing.com/BI7255Details.htm

I can't imagine that tail light wiring should be that difficult, but I don't want to dive in all on my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

-Amanda

I bought some TYC tail lights last year when I had my '03 SVT and on the box it said "will not fit SVT", but I still bought them anyways thinking I was smarter than TYC.

Well I wasn't.
They fit, but WEREN'T plug and play on the SVT. I would've had to splice the wires since one of the harnesses was different.
I ended up just saying screw it and sold them to someone else.

did you buy the ones linked above?
It would be nice to just plug and play with my '04 as well.

Thanks

Talking tail lights

mine were plug and play, was a little tired so what i ment was that my lights came with two different sets of plug and play wires, all i had to do was use the correct one that matched my wiring harness. i bought mine from www.enormisstore.com ask for mike
