    Dodgy hybrid

    On my never ending healight quest i have come across these on e-gay. Now they are not standard H lights and they are not the usual AFL xenons either, they look like a dodgy PS or a dodgy hybrid.

    Anyone seen them before ??

    It says on the EBay listing they're angel eyes. What's the problem?

    They look geniune in that second photo steve, but that first one does look fake.

    The guy in the ebay advert says he has 3 sets for sale so can you see if one set has sold and contact that buyer to see if they are 'real' or not - does that make sense?

    wondered how long it would be before someone started to chav up a mk5. seems this could be the first step. Angel eyes can look good, but they just scream cheap/tacky to me, they definately need colourcoding rather than left black, or GOD FORBID done in chrome

    I never said they WERE chavvy, merely that I wondered how long it would be before someone chavved up a mk5, and that this could be the first step. I agree 110% that angel eyes look good on the right car, I'm just not convinced those particular examples would look good on a mk5 without being colourcoded

    as for the mk3, I was toying with the idea of just tinting the insides charcoal grey or something like on the mk4s, but I haven't looked into it all that much yet TBH.
