    Rear Light tinting

    I'm sure yesterday on here i saw an astra with the rear lights half tinted, just the indicator and reverse part. is this done on the inside or the outside of the light? the lights were the standard non tinted version.

    Now you've pointed it out, you can just make out that the indicator is slightly red in the first pic - otherwise we'd have never noticed!!!
