Fitted my new Hella smoked rears this afternoon, much improvement over the stock ones I think.

Thanks go to Frisky's excellent guide http://www.uk-mkivs.net/forums/307889/ShowPost.aspx for how to do it - the blue tack tip was fantastic, couldn't imagine doing it without it, and probably wouldn't have thought of it myself!

Before and after shots....

Drivers side was easy as owt, but the passenger side was a right beeyatch tbh, had to pull all the inner trim back to get to the lower screw, and the 'pointy' end on this side took about 10mins to get free! seemed to be stuck somewhere.

I love them myself, think they are a really good match to Anthracite too, what you lot think??

I got them from Germany via ebay, cost me ?90 with all postages included.

Think it was ?85, then ?5 it cost me to mail them the cash, as a bank transfer fee was stupid!

Got some 17's coming in a week or so, then I'd love to drop it 35mm and maybe get a rear hatch spoiler.

Thats about all I want for her right now, but the trouble is I 'm in need of the cash to do it [:(]

Of course if money was no object, I'd have xenons, anni valances, milltek and recaro's [:)]......anyone feeling extremely charitable?

Gonna have to be a gradual thing I think, but I'll get it how I want it looking eventually.

Very good now, thanks again Nick [:D]
