E90 Facelift Style Tail Lights

I am into my first week of ownership of my 2007 E90 M Sport LeMans Blue.

So far I have installed carbon kidney grills and wing mirrors, along with de badging the rear. I will get some proper pics once the dreadful weather has passed and I can give it a clean.

I wasn't a fan of the white section on the pre facelift tail lights, and I am not too sure about the black lines for now so did the following today:











Better?

I think that looks pretty good, and not a bad idea as the facelift style lights are much nicer than the originals.

Do they look pink when you select reverse?

I'll post full pics when I give it a clean and it stops raining!

Reverse is just the same as before I cut out sections for White light.

looks way better than the black-lines everyone bangs on about - personally I think black-lines look chav.

Looks good and certainly cheaper than blacklines - I like my blacklines though so I must be a chav

I've just ordered some film to give this a go.
Anyone know if you have to leave the section out to show a white reversing light, for MOT purposes etc, or can you just cover the whole light?
Cheers.

EDIT:-

Like this..
