Get some tints on that and change the bumper then debadge it and lower it, then it'd look sweet! thats what im gonna do with my punto when I get cash, it looks exactly yours only it has tints

1. Bodykit
2. Alloys
3. Exhaust

How much did you pay for that

OK after looking at the bulbs i can see that they are all 12v21w and found out that u cant get ne brighter ones in the UK!!! Ok THE PLAN! im going to go to focus after work and get some bulbs which r for lamps and such! now think this is a good idea? i dont wanna remove a layer of black! just want brighter bulbs does ne1 know if this will work? or if there enough power in the car? wanna get some 12v30w or 40w bulbs just so they r brighter! please what ya think? will it work? or am i talking silly?:yum:

I think you maybe panicing abit early, ask your local mot place about them if you are really worried let them tell you, mine are not quite as dark as yours but have had no trouble and I have seen cars with the same as yours and they have not been stopped. or get yourself a brake light for the rear window.

mate, i would take them off and put thinners on them, then buy savage tint spray and redo them totaly, and they let light through alot better, yours like just black paint, not tint spray.

Glad you decided against more powerful bulbs, they would have probably melted the inside of the lights which is not fun - had it happen to me a while back :eek:

The Savage spray is about a tenner from Hellfrauds and a can should have enough tint spray in it to do both lights if done right (y)

Just remember several thin layers rather than one or two think layers otherwise it will turn out pants ;)
