    nah not shopped they're real, heres my secret how to! well not soo secret now!!

    Halfords sell this tinting spray which costs around £15 (extortinate!) which is red. i then removed my rear lights and masked off the red parts leaving only the clear and orange parts. u must mask off very carefully, and use proper making tape. the last thing you want is paint everywhere! then have both lights together lined up, and gradually build up layers. spray continously from edge to edge rather than bursts. you must leave the paint to dry between layers, 10mins is probally ok. then keep building up layers untill you get the colour match needed. i found that my very last layer needed to get the right match used the whole can!! so you should be fine. i finished with one coat of clear laquer (halfords again). it looks shite when u first put it on, but after its dries it looks great and protect the paint. if u over run at all with the tiniting spray use some nail polish remover and cotton wool to remove overspray! then polish em up!

    cheers my man, glad to see your motor now its been dropped. the wheels are nice yes but a pain in the ass as they're not the correct offset and are easily kurbed!! not a reburb me thinks!!
    U got much more planned for yours? u keeping the lexus lights?

    hehe looks like I've started a trend of new arty astra shots!

    That is looking damn fine though, you thinking of carrying out any or all of the shop mods?

    I love the lights too, do you think the halfords spray would work to darken my mk3 rear lights to black/smoke effect? (not going down the lexarse route!)

    you can tint it with the black spray...its hard to get a good finish at home tbh...my garage is never dust-free...best to pay a bodyshop for a top knotch job

    what shabazz says is correct. the tinting spray is good stuff, but you need to know how to use it, in a dust free environment especially no wind!! you can get a good finish but if you want perfection need a bodyshop! lol yup kirsty lovin those arty shots!! had to lies down to get some!!!

    I wanna defo colour code the black plastic parts as i think they go sooo much better! wats everyones opinions on the lights? the tinited photophopped ones?

    I think the tints look q cool as well, but if i had an even light smoke all round would that be blatant to the police? i know the astra already have factory tints?

    whats ppl think about the way shes sitting? ive lowered her on 40mm springs all round but the front seem to still be 4x4 stylee!! the springs have had time to settle as well. i was tinks get some 60mm up front but this will screw with the handling putting different makes on and will kill the shocks ive been told! any ideas?

    btw cheers pps!!
