    My rears and side repeaters were done with the "foilatec" spray, quite happy with the result, just take your time and build up very fine layers.

    Although it can look quite smart the B5 headlights have never been what I would call great. Adding anything to them to darken them can only have a negative effect on their operation. Personally I wouldn't bother.

    Have to say it does look good, I still have concerns over their operation as I can tell the diiference with my lights just wiping the road grime off.
