    Default My Silver Vectra with black roof, mirrors, grill...

    So if u read my previous thread you will know that I have taken all the carbon fibre parts off my car and last week it looked like this...



    Which obviously looks horrible. The new mods that i have done include gloss black roof, mirror covers, v grill, number plate surround and black tint film for the headlights and foglights. I also re-installed the 8k HIDs in my main beams and fog lights.

    This is what the car now looks like

















    Sorry about the crappy iPhone pics and filthy car. I'll try to wash it and do a proper photoshoot soon

    They are the original Sri headlights with a dark tint film applied over the top. I ordered the stuff from the States and it can be removed at any time easily without ruining the lights

    The first time I installed it I took the headlight out and mounted the ballast in a small gap on the side of the headlight, but the wires were pulling, so this time I wedged the ballast between the actual fog light and the bottom of the bumper.

    Hope this helps
