    Lexus or Afterburner Style Rear Lights

    I know everyone has their own individual tastes but I would value your opinions. Do I go for the Lexus style or the afterburner style rear lights??
    I`m tempted to buy both and fit the Lexus style lights whilst I wait to have the others painted.

    What do you think??

    Also, can anyone suggest a good place to have the following carried out;
    1) Spray my DTM indicator mirrors, including base plates.
    2) Weld, fill and spray both holes where the original indicators are.
    3) Weld, fill and spray the holes on the boot lid where the round vauxhall badge is.

    I live in Cirencester in Gloucestershire and have only had my evo spoiler painted (and fitted) so far, which cost me £180. The same company have quoted me £80 + vat just to spray the mirrors. Please help!!

    www.rjautomotive.co.uk for the bodyshop. You get 10% discount being an astra-sport member and a proper job!! BTW it wont be cheap as the boot and the all the wings will need spraying.

    As for the light I prefer the dark lexus lights or the Inpro lights. I am not a fan of the afterburners.

    Thanks for the info Mat, I`ve been looking at some of the pics from a meet today and the lexus lights do stand out, no matter what colour car their on.

    Will contact RJA next week and see what they can do for me.

    Thanks for your help.

    Cool louvres do vented wings for around 50 squid but the wing will need repainting

    Living miles away from any decent bodyshop who specialise in modifying cars, doesn`t leave me with many options.
