Personaly, I find that the lights that come with your car look the best.
Those lexus style lights are very common here. So much so that anyone who has them makes their car look tacky. In my opinion.

i agree with blue 406 but if they are still cool in jakarta i think the bottom (darker) lights look better

I got the idea of common lexus style lights makes the car look tacky, but i seen none of 406's installed lexus style lights because it simply doesn't exist down here. no body sells them, and not much of a peugeot 406's accessories is available here.

the cost of the lights is GBP 110. the shipment cost 100 GBP. but it would be worth it if it makes my 406 'one of a kind' down here. :cheesy:

So ... ?!?! go for it ?. ( i agreed with trem1, darker one suits my car's color IMO)

Go for the dark ones :)

What'd probably look real cool is to take the outer lense off, spray the black plastic the same blue as your car, then put the clear lense back on and fit them to the car ;)

Now THAT would be unique

Nice idea m8, but won't it be glued/sealed together? probably water might leak into the reflector if i force it open. but let's see when it got here.

So dark smoked one it is! :D *yippie* .... but takes 6 - 9 days to get here.

Funny how when the Lexus IS200 first came out, everyone said ''wow, look at the clear rear lenses how cool is that''...........now though they have become the symbol of something not so good.

So for me, you can take your lexarse lights along with 'Angel Eyes' for a Vauxhall Corsa and shove 'em.

Such a shame.

2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple
