Updated my headlights to get with the times :)
Actually someone came blasting past me on the carriageway and flicked a stone up from the central reservation which smashed the glass lense :(
Managed to find a set of clear lensed angel eye headlights on egay for £75, good price?
Heatgunned the lenses off, sprayed the internals of the standard lights satin black, and bonded the clear lenses on, think it looks pretty mean :twisted: Image

Thanks! :)
It wasn't until I posted it that I realised what a crappy picture I'd taken!
Also I now have a set of angel eye headligts with no lenses if anyone wants them. Might stuff them back on egay if not.

:shock:
Spraying it black wont affect the Dip and Fog, but your main beam will be worse than a torch.

I only use the full beam to occasionally flash people out, it's pretty much useless with HIDs. Not sure where I'll stand come MOT time as my tester always checks all the lights are fuctioning properly.
The full beam bulbs are multi canbus LED and are quite bright when flashed even with the satin black reflector. Time will tell.
