    How did you manage that?
    Smoked indicators would be next to try.

    Is it Santorini blue?

    Looks really great! Does the laminex get applied to the inside or outside of the headlamp glass?

    Question off the topic
    I've just bought plates, same like yours - pressed german with D badge. Did you ever been pull over because of them?
    I think I'll keep mine old one (legal) in the boot and in case of police control I'll lie I didn't know but I can change them straight away

    I've just laminx'd my fogs and am really pleased with it - probably a silly question but if indicators get laminx'd are they still legal or am I better off buying smoked indicators for the front ?

    your front indicators would still be fully legal and work fine.. on my headlights, ive tinted both inner lens' with dark smoke tint, AND done the outside.. and the light still shines perfectly through it.. indicators are next on my list as soon as i get some clear ones!!

    aaaaand yeah im running ambers.. i wasnt sure to begin with, but i kinda like them now.. but need to carry on with my blacked out light look lol think i might do the same on my rears though!! looks sweet!
