    Rear Lights Style. Need help deciding

    hey everyone im new on this site. bought my astra a few days ago. its dark green, and i was just wondering what style rear lights would look best for this colour.

    so far i've considered:

    and

    the smoked gsi lights

    im looking to style it in dark colours, i.e. smoked side repeaters, black angel eyes/smoked gsi headlights, dark smoke tints.

    all suggestions are welcome. and if anyones got pics of a modified dark green astra please post them. thanks

    How about you buy a can of tinting spray and spray your own lights?
    Looks really nice I.M.O
    I don't have any pics fo tinted lights but I'm sure someone on here will psot one up later
    Also find a guy called NRY... he's got some lights which look really smart if you want to spend £90

    yer I see what you mean
    Just start a thread titled "Picture Request - Black tinted lights?"
    or something like that... people are more than ahppy to show you pictures

    I personally never ask people to do "photoshops" for me... instead I jsut browse the forum for pictures of cars taht already have what I was looking for...

    Another good palce, if you haven't looked already is here...

    Go to the Bar at the top of A.O.C, and click on "Technical"
    It will bring a drop down menu, select "MK4 Styling guide"
    That has a lot of pictures on it

    I haven't... On my current astra I have the factory fitted standard tinted ones... I tihnk these came on the astra SXi late 2002, early 2003 onwards...

    On my previous astra, I blacked out the rear lights

    what colour was your old astra? because mines dark green i dont want to black them out completely. i want them to be smoked. im probably gonna get the ones i posted previously. and get black angel eyes for the front, was considereing devils but the're way too expensive for my liking
