    Sorry, I voted No.


    They look OK on the silver car and IMO they would OK on any colour car apart from white or black.

    On a '00 year car you have all red, tinted lens already. I personally think these look prretty cool to start with.

    Dont be sorry Graham,

    I was looking for opinions, and you gave me one :)

    I am unsure myself, but don't really want to spend £150ish to find out if they look good!

    Thanks for the opinion mate

    Paul

    P,

    I voted yes I think they would look nice on a black W202, my friend got the ALL red ones for his black 202 and they never suited it much, you may just have to bite the bullet and see what they look like.

    I wondered about buying a set of white/colourless rear lights and having them painted red with a couple of stripes left white/colourless, like the newer models. With enough preparation and lacquer you could prolly get something like this:

    That'd be a nice mod.
