Note smoked headlight lenses and fog lights, rears are smoked too. I didn't look inside but from what I saw apart from the yellow stitching it looks fairly standard inside

Not for me, but I do like the colours and smoked lights etc.

Me too, couldn't wait, so I changed the fogs myself


Painted the inside of the foglight gloss black. Only shiny bits are the lenses for the LEDs.
What do you guys think? The second picture shows the black base coat . After that it got a layer of gloss paint

From experience in the early days of RRSport.co.uk I know that it is possible to DIY smoke the lenses of the headlamps, it's having the courage to remove them and put them in an oven to split the lens from the body that is the biggest hurdle. That and the knowledge that if it all goes horribly wrong you are looking at the best bit of £1000 for two new headlamp units..........

I spotted 3 on a transporter on Monday and then 2 more today. Both was on the m62 near Leeds.
I don't like the yellow, but think it will sell well as It will fit in well with all the modded ones out there.

I suspect unfortunately for the people who buy them that the great unwashed will think they are wrapped and not painted

Exactly, but that's what i've done. Only this time I used a hairdryer instead of an oven.
Had some practice though a few years ago with the xenons of my mini cooper s.
