    Light Opinions?

    Was looking to change my rear lights once again as ive decided the current ones look tacky.
    Any opinions on what would look best on a black car?
    Currently dwelling over the sets below:

    I think the first set would look better, the second set may look too dark on a black car IMO.

    Yeh i was thinking of going for the complete black look but from other cars ive seen the tend to look like a black lump with nothing defining the shape.
    Cant really go wrong with OME.

    OEM look best to me. Keep an eye on ebay, you may be lucky and pick up some on there alot cheaper. I just won some for 16, not bad eh.
    I would go for OEM headlights too. Not a big fan of angel eye type stuff.

    Yeah first ones, blacked out is a bit out of date nowadays I reckon. Sod paying 160 for them also, try 4ringsspares as an ebay member, they will have some for a lot less..

    Both are nice, black ones on a dark car look good.
    I found these, thought they were nice but not too over the top, not too tacky lexus style!
