Theres a few ebay options at reasonable prices. Anyone got any experience of them?

I seee, lol. Just the ones i have a clear (that might be a standard thing!) and they just stick out like a big white blob on an otherwise dark car. Im not that bothered about if they even work lol, just want them to look nice and not leak water through the hole lol

I think I'm gonna buy some VHT Niteshades and try tinting mine a bit, should look much better on my car

not sure what you mean by wing, I thought you were referring to the side markers (mounted just forward of the doors, on the fenders)

yeah, bad angle I suppose, but you definitely see the dot up there... rather that gone, breaks up an otherwise smooth side panel in my opinion

I just used tint spray on mine too. Bad photo, it was just my car with winters on




It was just tint spray, no top coat or anything. Been on about 18 months now and still looks spot on

I got them from eBay, some cheap Hong Kong seller. Only paid about 70 for them painted and delivered, absolute steal and the fit was about 98%, pretty much perfect! Tried to find a link from my old posts but looks like the listing has been removed sorry

No worries about the link. Thanks for the info
Did you use 3m tape or bolts/screws to secure them?
