My car had them on when I bought it.

I took them off - just doesn't work for me.

Definitely not popular around here, That having been said here's a shot of mine.Click the image to open in full size.[/URL]
I didn't put them them on, but they aren't to noticeable. I don't care for the more popular black-outs, nor the halos.

I was actually thinking along the lines of the stainless steel flames more than louvers. I saw SS crossed flags on a vette while at the Indy 500 once but have never seen them since.
Anyone have pics of the stainless steel taillight covers.... Not sure what they are officially called. Excuse my ignorance!

But, if you happen to like the way they look on the car, put them on - it's your car and your money. I just wouldn't recommend getting a set like this:

If you like them, put them on. It makes my car look that much better without them....
