Default Which taillights?

Hey guys. So my dad put these 2010 style smoked taillights in before he gave it to me. I was wondering which taillights you guys liked. These or stock.

I think they look fine, but it has to come down to what you personally like. The car looks super clean.

I do like the new style Raxioms, but I AM mentioned they were possibly working on 2013 style tail lights for the 05-09s... I'm curious if those would look too out of place or just right. I'd keep the new style if I were you.

Looks like 6 of one and half a dozen of the other to me. They both look good. To me it just depends how far you go on exterior mods to use the '10s.

I was thinking of getting these to replace my stock taillights. To me though, after being pointed out to me, these simply don't look right IMO on this style. If you like smoked, Raxiom sells the 05-09 style smoked tail lights which are dark dark red, not black, and they leave the reverse light untouched. AM sells them. I bought those and couldn't be happier. They look Mustang, and are darker and more aggressive.
