    Astra G Smoked Rear Lights Help.

    I am wanting to get some smoked rear lights with mirror finish to go with my red/black look.

    I want to know if these are road legal and would you trust the seller? - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra...#ht_500wt_1156

    Thanks.

    Yeh they "should" be fine. The reason smoke lights fail is because you cant see the reflector at the bottom and on these you clearly can.

    As for the credibility of the buyer.... Not sure!

    Its hard to judge and this is the only place I can find them with the reflector showing.

    his feedback isnt great and the postage is high.
    it only costs £8 max to post a pair of rear lights.
    even if you get the darker ones,you can always change them over with your standard ones for MOT.

    Wondering if they are hard to do myself but I'd probably make a mess of them. Am I likely to get pulled by the police with the darker ones?

    They're nice! Anyway to get the mirror effect if I spray them myself? How long would it take roughly as I need car for work and don't have spares, only get Sunday and Monday off.
