Default question about tail lights

I have a 2005 convertible (base model,) and was wondering which euro style headlights would fit on it. I keep seeing 2000-2003 altezza style on ebay but don't know if there were any significant body changes to the 2005 base convertible tail shapes... if anyone knows please let me know...

You said tail lights at first, then talked about head lights. Either way, neither has changed with the 2005 model so all the different kinds of light you see on the aftermarket retailers or on eBay will fit your base model. The only thing I did notice on the convertible was that the gas filler door has a curve in it and is placed lower on the body than the 4 dr so all the chrome and billet aftermarket fuel doors won't fit the convertible.

oops... sorry about the mistype... thanks for the info... don't suppose you know anything about the difference between the bumpers on the convertible vs. the older models? My car has those "dimples" or recesses in the bumpers...

thanks anyway,

If it is the front bumper, they are there to mount a front license plate. Welcome to the Forum!!!

Welcome, Ramon.
Use the search function (upper right of page) to search for posts on taillights. They should all fit - some have had melting and condensation problems, so do a little research first!
