They are nice, relatively cheap compared with the quad lights and I guess are a straight forward procedure to fit. I like them myself a lot but I dont think they will fit with any color. They would look magnificent if they are fitted on a silver MG but would look rather awfull if they are fitted on other colors like the one in the pic. On the other hand, if the color is black I would go for the lexus black ones like those fitted on MG Deano's car. At the end everything results in matter of contrasts and opinions. Personally I think that the standard ones do LOOK much better with some colors, but as I said its just a matter of taste.

I suppose its personnel preference, but i dont like lexus lights on certain colours...they look ok on the darker colours in my oppinion, but not on the brighter ones....just thought you'd all like to know that!!! Not....:minxy: saying that, i wouldnt put them on my baby.

stu, first thing, they are extremely easy to fit. the hardest thing is fiddling about swapping the bulbs over to the correct slots....nothing taxing though. absolutely anybody sold be capable of doing the job.

the ahrdest question to answer is which suit the car best. u have seen my rear many times!!!!! the smoked black look perfect on a black tf. the chrome ones only really suit the silver tf. for XPG i think i would buy the unsmoked black lights instead of chrome.

honestly, they are extremely easy to fit. IIRC there is 3 bolts attaching the assembly. the wire block is a simple unclip and connect for new set so unclip the wire block, remove the bolts and take out whole unit. this gives u an opportunity to clean around teh body which is normally partially hidden and give it a clean. there is a foam sealer around the new unit, make sure this is making a sound seal around the body work so no water can creep in and tighten up the bolts again.

now the hardest part. swap the bulbs over!! we did it one bulb at a time to make sure we ahd the correct area done. u do need 2 people, one to put foot on brake and the other to check, etc etc.
repeat on other side and then your done.... get some water and run it down the boot sides to make sure the water doesnt leak in. then drive off and pose.
