Have you considered doing the Krylon red stained glass paint on your tails--just mask off the reverse section.

A lot of the impreza folks do it b/c the later years got too 'altezza'

I did it b/c I have a thing against chrome and couldn't handle it anymore and I think the tails look like a washed out pukey pink on OBP cars.

Now it's a nice deep red and still has great visibility at night. I did 3 coats with light wetsands between each layer, then about 3 layers of clear enamel with wetsands in-between. Obviously followed by wetsanding with 1000/2000 grit and a polish.

I can post up some pics tonight for comparison.

Edit:

Here's a pic--looks a little bit washed out b/c of the sun and it's an iphone pic. I personally like it a lot better than stock. Matches the red on the spoiler brakelight a lot better as well
