    All red rears?

    Has anyone done all red rears on a audi a4 b6 saloon?

    If so did you use tint spray or vinyl?

    And what bulbs are best to use?

    I'm doing my Avant ones at the weekend. I've bought some LED reverse light bulbs and I've been told to paint the indicator bulbs green so they flash orange through the red.

    I bought the Laminx so I'll give you an update on Sunday (hopefully)

    I used to do mine on my old Renault 19 16v's when I was younger - it will either look brilliant or awful - no inbetween

    I recently put LaminX on my fogs and headlamps - I have left the fog film on as it makes them discreet but I removed the headlamp films as it didn't suit my car.

    Yeah I thought they might look a bit cheap and give the lights a dull look to them, rather than the usually shine, but I'm pretty impressed for 25

    The indicator and reverse bulbs showed up the right colours so no paint or replacement LED bulbs used.

    So the standard orange indicators were sufficient then? That was the only thing putting me off doing mine!
