Is it possible to replace a coupe's turn lights with a sedan's?



I don't like how the turn lights blend into the headlights and create that blurred look in the picture above so I was wondering if it was possible to change that and make it look like the sedan's turn lights as shown in the picture below:




So basically, I want a coupe, but with the sedan's turns and headlights. If possible, what would need to be done?

I would say it's not possible without replacing the hood, fenders, etc. Unless you took it to a body shop and had extensive work done...even then the money spent wouldn't be worth it.

Long story short, it can be done somehow, but not worth the trouble or cost.

yea, extensive work has to be done.

You could sell your front end (fenders, hood, headlights), and buy the sedans (fenders, hood, headlights, corners), and it basically only come out costing you the shipping, and the paintjob.

There might even be some guys on here that want the coupe front end on their sedan, sweet if you two had the same color. otherwise would be time consuming acquiring all the parts, i think.

Actually, now that I think about it, how would smoked corners look on the coupe? I'm wondering if these would make the coupe's turns look more closer to the sedan's. Anyone have a picture of a coupe with these on?

I think smoked corners would only make them blend in more with the dark housings of your car.

you can experiment with different styles of corners for a cheap way to change the look.
