    Whoops, I think they just have satin black "reflectors" inside giving the impression that theyre tinted....:redface:

    Ok, thats easier to achieve!

    Stick em in the oven at 100 C for an hour then break them apart. Spray the shiny bits matte black and reassemble. Itll take you a day max.

    Ovening them just helps to soften and break down the glue holding the lens into the housing.

    your car is sweeeet man! What wheels are those and where'dya get that engine cover, or is it a sprayed / modded original?

    I take it thats a TDi? The cover is different from my 20V T one, better looking too.

    My Cabriolet has the dark colour inserts.

    And as for putting them in the over - yes tried and tested technique - especially for 'de-tango-ing' Fiesta Mk5 headlamps !!

    Roof is Opel Mitternacht. Actually a very dark grey. Bit of the front bumper went the same way as did the 6 week old wheels. Rear diffuser went the same colour, S4 calipers went subaru sti pink with the TSD monkey splat logo. Grille and intercooler went matte black.
