Have i gone too far??? Opinions please!

Hi guys,

Well my mods are finished.... the Blacklines and the M Aero Kit all installed....was very much looking forward to it..............BUT...... am all of a sudden not so sure anymore....is it too much,the blacklines and the kit?

Maybe i should re-install the original lights?

Before:



After:




Would this be better? (Original tail lights back) :





Opinions please....

I think it looks good but after all that's said and done, YOU are the one driving it day in and day out, YOUR opinion matters the most to you (unless you're married of course, then your wife's opinion matters most)

Well what do I think of it?...., i decided to change it to blacklines after seeing the pics on this forum. Funny enough, everyone that has changed to Blacklines needs to get used to it and i guess i am having the same problem Am very happy with the M kit though, should have done that one earlier...but before i sell of my original taillights i am gonna try to get used to it to the blacklines just in case....

More pics will follow....

This debate has been discussed in several threads in months past. New car owners seem to be much more conservative when it comes to concerns about voiding warranty, spending money on mods, etc. than used car owners. They also seem to be less open to the idea of changing anything. So the opinions you'll get here may be somewhat skewed.

The Blacklines have a much cleaner look. They sport more simple lines, hence, are more elegant IMO. Simple is always safe. What matters most is your personal preference.
