+1! Questionnable legality and most definitely a significant downgrade in appearance from stock

Garage List
Pretty sure that there was an mot clause this year that said that anything that reduces the light output from any of your cars external lights will be a fail. Pretty sure these count in that clause! Unless they're magic lights of course.

More importantly, that tint obscures the reflector part of the cluster - which is an instant MOT fail, regardless of how bad they look.

These look terrible. Just awful.

When says factory tint, he must have had them tinted by one of the places that charge for it - they're certainly not produced like that.

And how the f*ck can they fit e90-e92???
