Default Smoked Tail Lights

Hey I am after some smoked rear lights clusters. I can't seem to find any in the UK because the supplier ABC Design have stopped making them for some reason. They seemed to be the only suppier of them in the UK.

Does anyone know of anywhere where I would be able to buy some from?

Sorry i must of missed the post. Ive already looked at those websites and im sure they are supplied by ABC Design which no longer sell the smoked rear tail lights. Im thinking I may need to buy them from outside of the UK. Does anyone know of anywhere where they are available?

That’s great. Cheers! I will have a look on the website.

I paid £200 to have my windows tinted. They have done all the windows apart from the front windscreen. It is also illegal to have the front windows tinted so I have had them tinted in a lighter smoke. So there’s less chance of being pulled over by the feds.

Hope that helps.

Hey
Are the rear lights you are talking about the lexus ones? I think the chrome ones would look good on your car, but it is entirely up to you. Its which ones you like best.

These are a few pics of my car. These are old pictures and various things have changed on my car e.g. angel eyes, indicators, window tints etc... My digital camera has broken & im waiting to get a new one. When I get one I will post some updated pics of my car.

yeah.

http://www.lexustaillights.co.uk/lex...es/BM60L62.jpg

the chrome ones stick out quite a bit at the back n look out of place.

Do you know anywhere that does bodykits for these.

i know prosport.uk.com does m3 skirts for £90
bodykits.uk.com does some really good kits and front bumbers but i only want a rear valance so i dont lose the parking sensors. and it is much cheaper. cant find one anywhere apart from shatty DTM stuff

Nah sorry mate! Ive not really lloked at the body kits. Mine just came with the simple M-tec kit on it.

Im not actually after the lexus lights. I want a pair that are smoked though. I think ABC Design used to make them but have stopped.

Good luck finding a body kit.

If you cant find any smoked lights you can always pick up some light-tinting spray and do it yourself...Its pretty much idiot-proof if you take your time; I've got absolutely no artistic skills whatsoever and mine turned out really good. (Although, I only tinted the indicator and reverse lights on the rear light cluster.)

I ended up spraying my original rear lights. I found that the results are quite impressive. I was unable to get hold of any smoked rear lights so i spent £10 on a can of rear light tinting spray and spent a day spraying them. I will post some pics for you to have a look at them if you want. let me know!

Thank you for the offer but I put up a post and had so many people tell me that it really works, does a good job and looks great. But someone sent me a link which took me to some really nice german smoked tail lights. Thank you so much though!

Hey Bhav,
Where did you get your angel eyes and your windows tinted- I'm in Bristol, and I want both of those done. And how much did the lights set you back?
