    Question Smoking rear lights

    Can't decide if to or how much to smoke the rear lights on the astra.
    What would you guys think? I dont want to go really dark, like black, but maybe just a light tint to it?

    you can get some after market ones already done (as in vauxhall sell them like that), or do it yourself which will probably be a bit trickier, but you can go as light or dark as you want with those..

    me personally id say 40-50% smoked on the rears well look nice, but it should till be able to reflect light off the relfectors or its not quite road legal..

    I personally wouldn't bother with smoking the rear lights when you can pick up aftermarket ones on places like eBay.

    Glacious has these on his coupe, which I think look a million times better than smoked standard lights. Made by Depo, and think they came from Germany, but not too sure. Just remember though, you will have to buy lights for a hatch, coupe lights will not fit.

    I have these I got from ebay for about £40. It's much easier as they're done perfectly and I get to keep my standard ones incase I ever need to swap them back.
