Re: Rear Lights

     I have to disagree.  My black '89 80 quattro with all red tail lights with 
     my red Serotta bicycle on the roof looks pretty good.

Personally, I hate the all red lights - looks like the junk coming out of 
Detroit.  Of course, making the blinker yellow helps.  The rear lights 
and reflector are, without question, the ugliest thing on the RS2.  (Of 
course, I'm kinda partial to my Quantum sedan tail lights - red, yellow, 
and white).  
One note I thought I would add.  I don't remember where, but I remember 
seeing a picture from one of the shows of a dark blue Audi with BLUE 
body-colored tail lights that actually lit up red.  Now that's cool!
Still, I still like the different colors.  Of course, I was the biggest 
fan of the black moulding along the bottom and on the wheel-well arches, 
and the black line down the middle of the car.  Mid eighties Audis and 
VW's had the best look to me - especially trim wise.  I don't go much for 
the monotones - it ruined the Passat.
