    Opinions Please :)

    Hi Guys

    Well just after some views and opinions really my next mod is going to be the front and rear lights, front wise I am going for black angel eyes or the new black audi style lights not sure yet, i have tinted side repeaters its just the rear lights I am quite stuck on I have 3 options as far as I can see:


    1: Get rear lights professionly tinted so they are still see threw and shiney unlike my current matt black bodged DIY job, and also have the 3rd brake light tinted the same way.



    2: Black Lexus style lights, not a fan of the chrome ones but black ones are ok I guess.



    3. Go for Lexmaul style rear's but wouldnt really match the front dark lights and dark side repeaters.



    4: Keep them standard but boring zzz

    I dont really no what will suit my car so any advise would be appreciated.



    Regards

    Glacious

    I think lexmauls would look the nicest. Maybe get them tinted then a little darker to tie it all in if you brave enough to mess with such expensive lights .

    If it was a black car i'd say do something completley fresh like buying in some led lights and smoking them but im unsure it would work on a blue coupe...

    Lexmauls are the best but you will be lucky to find a set........I mean very lucky so Ive voted option 1. IMO I wouldnt have the audi style headlights either.....not keen on them on audis and reckon they look awful any any other car!

    iv voted for the tinted lights as long as they are done properly and dont come out in the horrid dry matt looking colour but lexmauls also look good depending on the colour of the car ie red or silver or black. just my thoughts

    I think ill stick to angel eyes then really I mean after seeing them on your car linea and with the eye brows they do look sweet.

    There is a person on here AOC that makes lexmaul lookalikes and can honestly not tell the difference question is should i smoke them a tiny bit as they really suit your car linea just dunno about mine

    1 - Subtle but still a little OEM looking.

    Those self tinted/smoked ones look terrible. Lexmauls look the best but getting them now is nearly impossible.

    I voted Lexmaul but people want silly money for them.

    These are my tinted rears plus 3rd brake light done. And depending on how the light shines on them depends how dark they look.



    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Cheers mate I do prefer the angel eyes, I know not everyone is keen on the eye brows but I think it suits them.

    As for the rear lights, mine arent Lexmaul ones, they are GM ones off the saloon from brazil so they dont have any tint on them. but to suit your blue coupe I would say if your having a set of the lexmaul look alike ones, have a slight tint on them.
