    Cant make up my mind so I thought I'd see what you lot think.

    Here's what she looks like now but there will be angel eyes going on in the not too distant future.


    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Whoops hit thanks instead of quote

    Haha though.

    Think I'll probably just buy a set off ebay so I can take them off if I change cars. Saying that though are they hard to paint ie is it just a spray you can buy in Halfords or do you need to get a pro to do it?

    Would like to see how they look fitted if anyone has a pic with this colour car...?
