92-95 SSE/SSEi tails are as easy to come by as snow in Florida. Every once in a while you can find them in the "For Sale" or "Ebay" sections here, but are snagged pretty quickly. Also, unlike SE tails, they can suffer from delamination (where the clear plastic outer lens separates from the black grill that is in between the outer and inner lenses), which make the best candidates for "smoking". Ebay has a few from time to time, but if in primo condition they command a fairly hefty price. In fact, my tails are so far gone that I may very well have to run with SE tails until a good set pops up.

Also, there are a few members here who are trying out LED refits (home engineered and manufactured), and some have gone to the much more aesthetic 96-99 rearend (though this involves changing out the trunklid and a slight rewire). The bottom line is that you do have a few options for that custom look, just a matter of how many Washingtons you wanna drop.

If you're lucky enough to find them in a junkyard you could get them for around $60 depending on their prices. Ebay is a good bet as stated already, and I've seen them sell for as low as $60 there. But if you want them bad enough you could see yourself paying well over $100. Which isn't a bad deal considering.

Don't attempt the dealer as they'll run you probably $600 for a set
