    Hard to tell with those low-contrast, foggy pictures, but which shade did you use...? -Tint, or gunsmoke

    Would this be the same Lex that used to post on UK-MKIVS?

    Nice car, not convinced with the red badge but looks well, get some better photos of the bad boy.

    i cant really remeber which size sheet i got but i had excess enough to do my mates side repeaters

    i does seem to affect my light output a slight bit, not overly bad. thinking about it now i would probably got the shade lighter

    and not sure about them being street legal, plently of people say they go through mot just fine and police havent said much
