There aren't stupid questions...only stupid answers, but I have some good answers cause I have TYC tailights on my car. Fitment is perfect, they are a direct replacement for your factory tailights, DOT and SAE compliant and they look awesome. TYC make a quality product...in heavy rain and snow and anything I have had no leaks or condensation in my TYCs. There are three bolts holding your factory lights on. You need a little metric wrench to get them off and I forget the size but use a little one cause two bolts are easy to get off but the third was a pain in the ass. All told install should be under half an hour. Check out Matrix Racing they have good prices, that's where I got mine. A lot of shops sell their stuff on eBay for cheaper than what they sell in their store so check eBay too. Good luck! thumbsup

The link that Satoshi posted is awesome. That's what I used to install my carbon fiber altezzas and that's what I'll be using again to put in my new TYCs.
