    just fitted my facelift lights, took less time than expected, only about 20mins start to finish!

    after months of looking on ebay and various other places managed to pick up this mint condition set for £70 inc. P&P! good deal i think!

    makes the car look much better from the back i think, my m tech kits been delivered aswell so should have that fitted by the end of the week!

    I didnt really like the lexus on mine. Maybe because its black and lexus stand out more. But you do get to like them after a while?

    But facelift do look nicer IMO, mainly because the lexus look has been chav branded and ragged !

    Looking forward to seeing your kit fitted

    Much better .

    I saw that you ordered the kit M kit from mstyle.co.uk - Is the quality of the paintwork good and are all fittings provided etc?

    I need a new front bumper, but considering they cost £600 alone I may as well get a complete new bodykit for £800 and sell the old one!
