    Has anyone tinted the front fogs in a yellow tint? Was thinking of doing mine, my car was supposed to stay standard but I've already started tweaking it :-s

    Why would you bother, are you spending all your time in France?

    I'd have to check with my MOT tester but it may be ileagal in the UK strickly speaking, not that you woudl get failed for it.

    They're not illegal.

    I have done mine, albeit they need redoing now, got the idea from Az (I think) looks very effective on dark colour cars in my opinion.

    If you have a search through Az's pic you'll find some good pics, there's certainly one which inspired me.

    I just though it looked cool. My best mate is my MOT tester so even if it was illegal which I don't think it is it wouldn't be an issue lol

    Dead easy, squeeze top and bottom and takes seconds.

    is that from the outside mate? Are the fog lights flat?

    Cheers

    Yes from the front, they're slightly curved but not a lot.

    Mine are yellow film too.
    Simple to do.
    I found them better in nighttime fog too, less reflection. Not that we have many pea-soupers anymore.

    I did mine for a while, looks cool but i got kinda feed up with the yellow look after a while and went back to the clear white look, never had a issue with the MOT or the Police,
