    Opinions please

    Well ladiers and gentlemen, before anyone says 'I told you so' my brother followed me home the other night and said he couldn't see my lights very well. So, I decided that, rather than use paint thinner to take the tint off and do them again, I'd be better off with new lights (calm down jam )

    So, what are peoples opinions on these jobbies from LMF?

    I want tinted lights, but with something different. Was thinking about the late SRi/SXi lights but wanted peoples opinions on these first.

    Before anyone says 'its your car do what you like', please bear in mind that my monitor has no red pigment in so I can't see what they look like properly.

    Thanks all
    Gaz

    Im with Danny on this one - I cant see those ones posted being in keeping with the look of your car. I'd stick with standard tinted jobbies

    Guess you didn't read what it says on the spray can then?!?

    I just bought some tint spray to do my gf's MGF indicators - (I'm not paying £48 for a white/smoked pair) and it says in very small writing "more than 2 coats of tint will impair the light effectiveness" then further on down it says "not road legal" oh well - if she gets pulled it's her problem!!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    Maybe

    They looked alright when I did them but my brother said he couldn't see them and my girlfriend said the same this morning. I'm on my grandad's computer so can see things properly. Those one's from LMF are nice lights, but as GeordieBandit said, they wont suit the car very well so going with the late SRi jobbies on the Bay

    Gaz thank god your changing your lights about time too

    TBH though mate I recon the lights you originally posted up would work very very well on your motor, give it a more european modified look I recon. Especially if you badged it up as an Opel and got some plates made up.

    Its a jam thing
