    no they are not as you can't see the reflector and i doubt the light will show through much either

    nothing to say the reflectors have to be on the lights themselves

    can be retro fitted elsewhere on the body - obviously in line with legal requirements for height/distance apart etc

    providing the light shines thru and its the correct colours u will be fine

    may have to fit higher rated bulbs or do some other tricks to enable the light to shine the correct colour

    Why are they ugly? Lol I like them mate and got them on mine. If they have been done professionally the light output will be the same as a normal light.
    sold the astra! and the focus! now have the fiesta ST

    depends on the copper/mot tester id say but unless you got some sort of reflector in the right place you risk being pulled + shafted
