Whenever I looked at the car, the Austins were the one thing I never really liked.  It was a combination of them being diamond cut and the offset which didn't fill the arches width ways too well.  Since this photo was taken I've had the car lowered on Eibach Pro springs and replaced the BBS centre caps with red ones, I think they really finish the look off....

...back on topic... as do the lights  :grin:

Looks very nice, definitely like the darker lights on the Mk7.

The tints won’t be a patch on OEM R tails.

You’ll barely lose any money if any at all buying Watts‘ set then selling them on again when you change cars.


(That’s not the first time I’ve said that!)

Agree with this. Get them bought and resell at later date or sell your originals to recoup some of the money straight away.

As a bump of part of the original question - has anyone had experience with any tinting film in particular?
