There are such a varied s election for the MK4 on the market at the moment, but in my opinion the only two that work exceptionally well are the Hella R/C/C/R's and the Inpro M3's.

I am afraid that I am going to have to be a little 'harsh', they are steaming / misting because they are a cheap / bad design!!

What make are they?

You will find that the deisgn of the lamp is such that there are hot spots and the heat cannot escape, also the seal to the BIW (body in white) is probably not spot on so you will be getting water into the lamps.

I can however recommend the R/C/C/R rearlamps?!!?!! (I am biased though).

Mate - the Alteza is the non euro name for the IS200 - they are the same thing, IE - Lexus

Get US GTI ones or even the Euro GTI ones are nice, these aftermarket lights can really make a Golf look totally crap - sorry, dont mean to offend - just MHO.

Well it all depends now what type of lights you're after to replace your altezza ones. The main choice seems to be the Hella's, they're the nicest and great quality lights that wont fail like your last set. So i suggest you PM Baker21, he's the man to see, he's hooking me up with a pair of the Hella R/C/C/R's this week and many people on this forum seem to go to him.

mcclarky2004, those above are the Inpro M3's incase you're interested, they go for around ?145 from venom motorsport and with regards to your earlier question, Baker21 said the R/C/C/R's would be around ?95 then you have to add on P+P. If you are seriously interested, best to just have a word with him and get more details and a more accurate price... He's friendly enough! Hope this helps!

These are what we call Lexus lights

So you're right - they are both Lexus style, but they're not exactly the same thing [:D]
