    Removal of orange off rear lights?

    Can it be done? Or is it the actual colour of the glass?

    you would need to buy complete new units.
    as you have a coupe i think they are hard to find but someone will hopefully be along to tell me i'm wrong

    no way to get clear cheaply mate,

    what some people do is tint the indicator's and reverse with black tint spray, that gives a red/black/red look
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Failling that theres a cheap way to make your lights very similar to the red /clear / red lexmaul lights

    Have a look in my project diary to see what they look like...

    Red lense repair tape BTW - shhhhhhhh lol Not quite legal but the orange still shines through orange.

    Buy the clear one from the German version of Ebay and tint the top and bottom red!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Na haven't got the car sorted yet. Weird thing is now that I got the bearing changed it doesn't sound/feel have a bad and I don't notice it as much. So really stuck on what to do. I could go on forever and keep changing this which is gonna cost a small fortune.

    I'll wait until I get my service done in November (hopefully off your mate), then see where I am with it.
