i'm pretty sure these fit exactly as oem, you should be able to install the plastics back again. but yeah, i've seen those taillights you've mentioned.

the plastics? You dont have to take the plastics off. Just remove the two covers inside the hatch. Then remove the three ten mil bolts holding the lights in. Remove light, replace light, tighten with old bolts, and then put the covers back on!! Easy as that 1,2,3

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

there is this 1 screw that is pretty tough to get, im sure i could get but i think installing the reds would be harder. (the plastic is covering the wayy), is it just like that for the 03s or are all like that?

it's like that for all of them...

just use a wrench and squeeze your hand in there or have someone with smaller hands do it.

no no no, my friend. There's a much simpler way. Just remove the plastic piece that is in your way.

directions (AND PICS) can be found here - Thanks Satoshi wave
