Ok so I won some tinted front and rear lights on ebay for the princeley some of £2.20. Only planned on using the rear ones as the fronts are no good for night time driving and require some work. Heres my rear before....

If you do decide to sell your old rear light covers, any chance of getting 1st refusal, unless of course someone has already beat me to it?

Those tints look superb mate!(y)

looks very smart. i much prefer tints to covers (y)

I have the best of both worlds, although I'm not sure whether I should sell one set, i have some standard lights with covers and some tinted lights with covers, not sure which I like the most TBH.

Looking great Jovis, but what are the legalities like about the rear tinted lights - I'm sure you have to have some type of "reflection" when headlights/light hit the rear end - they look asthough they would reflect at all?? or do they??? Watch out for the Police matey, they are cracking down on stuff like that. Anyway, like the look of them - really suits the car and does blend in well with middle brake light mask that Al did for you.
