    Question Self tinted rears or smoked rears?

    Figured i would put the lights on the car today & take some pics, just to see what they look like fitted.

    I'd decided that whichever i decide to use, then the other set will be getting put up for sale.

    Personally, i'm leaning a bit towards the smoked look myself.

    Oh & apologies for the poor shots as the light has started to go

    As well as that, i only remembered after i'd taken one of the lights off that i'd forgotten to get a pic without the lights on them being used LoL. so i had to do it with just the drivers lense. The passenger obviously looks the same.
    Soz for the non-blend with my filthy motor also

    Out of all the ones i've seen, i only really rate 2. The smoked as in the pic, or the ummm, black/clear ones that nry has been looking at lately. When i took my standards off i figured i'd have a crack at self tinting to see how it goes. I got the smoked for a reasonable price

    Any other set of lights tend to go for silly money though, including those nry is looking at.

    Standard smoked ones for me, one of the nicest lights.
