    Hi all,

    Last month I upgraded my headlights from the standard black reflectors to DEPO black angel eye projectors. Am very pleased with them so far.

    However, something just doesn't look right about the standard clear indicator lens beside them. Have a look at the picture I took this morning:



    What can you recommend to better complement the DEPO headlights, without looking "chavvy".

    Cheers!

    Hmmm, those are quite nice. Are they DEPO too?

    I'm thinking maybe I should just spray the stock indicators with tint spray, just make them a bit darker. Anyone done this, is it effective?

    actually, thinking about it, I ordered these angel eye lights from www.mstyle.co.uk and when ordering I noticed it said "come complete with indicator". However, no indicators arrived - only the headlight units.

    Here's a screenshot of the website, with the lights I ordered highlighted by red box:



    I've sent them an email, will see what they say.

    Hmmmm....

    Well, I emailed MStyle on Thursday but have heard nothing back from them yet. Slightly disappointing for a company so many people speak so highly of.

    well, I have to say I got a pleasant surprise today.

    I emailed MStyle last thursday (detailed above) about the lack of indicators with my new Depo headlights. They never replied. Then today a package turned up. I wasn't expecting anything, but it turned out to be the accompanying DEPO indicators from MStyle.

    Very good service I have to say! (Communication could be better though, a reply would have been nice).

    Anyway, very pleased!
