Got my shiny new black VR6...

Sadly, it's got red / orange / white back lights.

I was thinking of getting red over smoked rear lights... but what do people think of the round red ones and the LED styleeee ones...?

I Agree with Tony, Smoked is better, round is chavy!

Save some in the credit crunch! ;)

Do what I did, and just mask off the orange indicator part of the lense, and lightly apply some gunmetal grey paint. Then a coat of clear lacquer, and voila!! Euro style rear lights for peanuts!!!

Didn't actually cost me anything, as I had some of the aerosol kicking around :D

Dont go too mad though, otherwise they wont flash orange much!! You can just about see them in this pic. Left the Reverse light alone, just to be abit different.

Smoked for me as well. Just enough to modernise it slightly while still having a look of factory about it. Leave the Max pants mods for the Corsa boys.

i have the smoked led ones .everlasting bulbs and a lot brighter too were originally on my blue van but swapped them onto my new one especially as it had the round lexus style ones on it when i bought it and agre theyre chavvy as hell so stuck them on the blue one to sell it .think the smoked leds would look good on black

fine for steel wheels and black bumpers they look right at home but once modded they look like you ran out of money LOL:

i thought there where warning lights on the dash issue with led rear lights on some 2.5's?

I believe the fault shows because there is insufficient resistance in the circuit because the leds don't draw the current the system is expecting with std bulbs and it thinks theyre not working properly. Not sure of the finer points ( I'm as good a sparky as our cat :confused:) but just need to introduce a resistor.

i must have been lucky as no problems with the fitting, it was only my rock n roll bed that got in the way, and my sons little hands helped with the fittingT:

i went for clear bottoms with osram diadem blue then orange tinted bulbs with red top leds they look trick but subtle and match the clear front indicators
