cheers guys, i knew the lexus lights would come up. i thought they blended in nicely with the 1st sprayjob.i just havnt had chance to change them back to the original gsi lights as i think they stand out too much against the blue.

i got the complete car resprayed including the materials for £800, as i know the guy :D , he used to work spraying cars for volvo then bmw bodyshop. the finish is absolutly immaculate here's a few more pics i managed to take.
i had the original gsi seats retrimmed in black leather with grey double stitching back in november. They just need a few hours in the sun to tighten up, mainly on the side bolsters.

You got a result there then bud i bet your well chuffed, looks great!! I would put the lights back to orignal though, but if you like them keep them.My Mate bought a set of them lights fitted them and by the next day there were full of water, i thought it would be a good idea to put some goldfish in them!

definatly gonna put the original lights back on. tbh it took a fair bit of messing aroung to get the lexus lights to fit better and not leek. i think they only really suit cars that are white or silver, hence the reason i bought them this time last year. im well happy with the colour and finish of the car. just passed its mot too, solid through out.
