I live near Heathrow and always thought rozzers might be bored in these quiet parts of London and start picking on car enthusiasts rather then real trouble makers.

Guess, living in Hounslow Borough is never bored for them. Sirens can be heard from everywhere at any time of day or night.

Very very low key do like them but think I’d have to go a tad darker for my taste, but does work well good look.

So with mine would I be able to polish them out to get a shine?

Yes If you polish after it leaves a glossy effect which works really well.

And I’m not sure I think a bit darker would be too much lol

Your first thought was correct. You’ve gone too dark. Looks like someone has stolen your rear lights. A nice tint is sporty and classy but in my opinion you’ve crossed the line into chavvy.

There's opinions.. then there's being insulting... not the same.

Don't think I was being insulting by saying it looks chavvy, because it does look chavvy. When I was 22 I had a Fiesta XR2i and I put blue anodised windscreen wiperarm spoilers on. I thought it looked great for a week or two and when I look back now I cringe at just how terrible it looked. I've also made plenty of mods just for the sake of modding that didn't come out too well. So I speak from experience and I'll wager that the OP doesn't keep his lights like that for long.

I'm not one of these straight-laced "ant-modders" that say all mods are rubbish. Far from it. I've modded every car I've owned to varying degrees, but these look pretty rubbish in my opinion.

They are far too dark and will most likely be an MOT failure due to the reflectors being blacked out. My opinion is that they look terrible because all of the internals are completely hidden. If you think that's insulting feel free to retreat to a "safe-space" and burn some Donald Trump effigies or something.

No need for sarcasm. You asked for opinions and I’m giving mine.

This is how it’s done:

Definitely no sarcasm, but using the term chavvy is abit far fetched in my opinion. Dislike them etc but dropping the name is a tad cheeky.

But what can you do it’s the internet right.

Same here modded all my cars and looking back some were just laughable but it’s what you do when your young right.

But again I just went to dark and haven’t had the time to remove and respray. The thing is in the pictures they do look fully blacked out when in fact you still see reflectors and still see the red lense behind the tint. MOT had no issues because of that reason.

The picture of the car is a lovely shade. I just went spraying crazy as I’ve used a different spray previously. When I get the time to do it again I’ll be sure to let you know. Annoyingly I sprayed my friends car and the lights came out near enough the same which sucked lol
