anyone have these tail lights (pics request)?



or the smoked version



I already ordered the "real" MHW smoke lights from Abrahams Motorsport (Mel seems like a pretty cool guy to work with) since both of these were just shy of 30 days out from Deutschland but I kinda like the idea of "modernizing" the car bit / getting rid off the ambers. The ONLY photo I saw of any of these was the red/clear on a 318i with divingboards (thus the "small" tails) and I wasn't all that impressed. Thoughts? Please set any "purist" BS aside and just refrain from posting if all you're gonna say is "Stay OEM you're gay kthxbye."

They aren't ebay, they're from Schmidmanns but I decided to pass (someone on r3v sent me a link to a few cars on e30.de) and have MHWs on the way

I was hoping to eliminate the amber from the rear, yes it is very european-car but I am getting smoked front turns (and euro bumper trim to eliminate all of the side lights) so I was figuring on the red/smoked in the rear, but the MHW smoked lights are what I settled on, hopefully they look good, I have mixed feelings from various photos I've seen.

I don't know what MHW is, but I hope this isn't what they look like. So cheap looking...



Those red/smoked ones look good.. very VW looking.

they aren't the cheap tinted smoked but they really do look smoked.
