and then 3 coats of clear lacquer from halfords. I only tinted the portion of the light that is mounted on the bootlid. I hated the Mitsubishi Carisma-esque look of the reversing lights.



Did my friends 320d too:

Thanks for those pics! makes a huge difference to the rear end, i too dont like the white part that sticks out and not keen on darklines.

Just another question - i see you sprayed the whole white reversing part, does the reverse light shine through all of this area? how does it look?

i will probably leave a small clear strip (like LCI) for the white light to shine through, but wondered is the rest of it opaque so the light cant shine through...
