    Question Lexus light fittings...?

    Afternoon all,

    It's pay day today so I'm looking to spend some money, possibly on some Angel Eyes and new rear lights too.
    My question is why are Lexus lights frowned upon so much on this forum,(please bear in mind I am new to modding).

    In my opinion.... they are hated because every chav has them on their corsa's, nova's, 106's etc.. and i have recently seen a set on an MK4 astra and they just dont suit the car.. Theres my arguement to it

    they're just not everyones idea of nice looking lights....
    ... yet they can look very good on the right color of car.

    End of the day, if YOU like them get them
    (bollocks to everyone else.)

    Modding is all about individual style, getting a car to look how you want it...no rules

    It's not so much the image for me, I just think they look terrible. They can make a classy car look very cheap instantly. Some of the dark lexus style ones are acceptable though - my brother has them on his focus and I think it looks quite smart.

    Totally a case of each to their own though, go for it if you like them

    in most cases they look crap - even on Lexus'.

    even they got fed up of seeing every chav escort and corsa with em and have changed the design now!!

    but as Coo says on the right car they can look good (in black/dark guise) and if you like them then you buy them. Just be prepared for folks to say "err another set of lexarse lights" if it doesn't look quite as good as you'd hoped.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
