    I think the 456 tail light assemblies look classy just the way they are.

    Just don't change your mind afterward, because replacing them back to original will cost you a kidney!!

    +1. I think Pininfarina knew what they were doing with most of the design elements of the 456.

    Black is beauty - good idea! Do it Jason, together with the black wheels you will have an impressive and unique 456.

    I did and love the look. Painted body colour so depends on car colour for effectiveness.
    Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Tassie - Those look killer. Thank you for sharing. I'm definitely going to have it done.

    I don't think he is looking for smoked lenses, but rather the plastic between the two main round lights being painted body color. I like it.

    Some nice ones here but I am not a fan. I like the oval design.

    I'm honestly torn. I'm used to the OEM, but the seperated looks has that usual Ferrari feel.

    Then again I don't think I'd go out in public. torn.

    I like the idea of smoked lenses also but Novitec doesn't make stuff for the 456. At least i couldn't find anything on their website.

    I must admit that looks pretty awesome and more ferrari-like.

    How do they make the paint adhere to the plastic lense?

    Agree fully. IMHO such tuning to 456 to make it look more "Ferrari like" makes it less Ferrari like.
