    Default debadge and tinted tail lights..any good ideas?

    I wanted a more clean look so I went for debadge and tinted the tail lights and I'm quite happy with the outcome but any ideas for a low budget styling(mods) ?

    Hi kristinn , very nice saloon you have there , the only mod that stands out as needing to be done is to tint your side repeater lenses to match your tail lights .
    Other than that you are pretty much spot on

    I'd go for clear lenses on the side,... black ones just look ... tacky to me , sorry!

    could fit a nice SRI boot lip spoiler
    also maybe fit SRI springs to drop it just a tiny bit, I'm not a fan of lowered cars, but equally not 4x4s!

    Was wondering about the wheels, but they are really growing on me, they do suit very well.

    Looking very nice. As said a wee Sri lip spoiler would look good. Is there not a silver one for sale here somewhere. A 30mm lowering kit would help to depending on the road conditions where u live.

    What about doing the chrome boot strip black also. Not everyones cup of tea but seeing as you have tinted rear lights and de-chromed your window strips it might sit nicely with your car!

    I bought clear side repeaters lens because the orange was screaming for attention, black is maybe a bit to much but I‘ll try it with the orange ones I have and post a pic if i deside to install them.

    Maybe I‘ll go for this one, thansk for the idea !. Would also like to lower it a bit but then it would look ugly without spacer but that‘s going to the next summer to-do list because in two or three months it‘s going to be the ugle snow shoes under the car and highten it(unlower) when it snows . Yeah i think that these weels suit the car very well but they are 17‘s, would be much better if it were 18‘s(look a bit small when looking at some angles)

    Definitely not my cup of the hehe, I like the chrome number plate frame and boot strip combo.


    And just to clear things up.(my mod list);

    Xenon(HID?) in the front lights
    LED fog lights (look like Xenon but arent as bright and shining in every ones eye when driving in the diffrent direction)
    Chrome numberplate frames front and back
    Red brake calippers
    Clear lens side repeaters
    Tinted tail lights and a black sticker on the boot braking light that says VECTRA but the led bulbs are too bright so that you cant se VECTRA when I‘m breaking but they look just black If you stand 4 meters away so thats cool
    Blue Led in the number plate light ( Illegal here in iceland but have had them for over a year and never been pulled over)
    To Do list:
    SRI Boot lip spoiler
    Re powercode wheels(starting to have a tiny bit of loose paint and previous owner wasn‘t too carefull driving when driving close to sidewalk edges)
    Black irmscher grill or look a like

    Hi, lovely clean car you've got there. Firstly I'm not a big fan of smoked lenses, but it looks nice. Clear 3rd brake light is a must, as it keeps the clearish silver theme up top. How about a shark fin aerial?? And I would definatetly be looking to do something with the rear skirt. Nice single or twin exit exhaust system. That not the cheap part of course.
