    says fully road legal, but as far as i am aware rear lights (or at least the rear of the car) must have reflectors

    Ditto Matt, mine were £60 or so delivered via German eBay, sold as quartz black rear lights. £130 is WAY over priced!

    Legally you need rear reflectors - whilst I've never been pulled as yet I have normally put my old OEM rears on for MOT time though this time, since I sold my OEM rears, I'll be sticking some reflectors on the mudflaps instead.

    Loads on eBay.de if you search for 'Astra G schwarze', around 80 euros + carriage (can't see this listed) which is £65.

    the other option is to put reflectors on the bumper like I have.

    it doesnt look too bad with the car being red although they would stick out like a sore thumb on a black car

    Not so far as I mentioned above, though I tend to have sidelights on nearly all the time being a black car and all that...kinda harks back to my IAM advanced driving course from years ago.
