Thinking of what to buy myself for Xmas (selfish git) and I was looking at Ultimate Styling rear lights (Lexus style) has anybody fitted them, what's the quality like, are they plug and play.

4 ring ones are ok (Ultimate styling), but they do have a problem with the fixings which are quite brittle, there are always ones being sold on ebay cheap due to the fixing studs breaking off. The 3 ring (ProDesign) are far higher quality but have not been available new since around 2005. I've both types, some on an F some on a TF. If buying second hand (4 or 3 ring) just ensure the fixing studs are all there. If buying new, just make sure you do not overtighten the nuts on the studs.

I agree with what dert says. I bought some second hand and the fixings were broken, but to be honest it was easy enough to cobble up an adequate fix. I appreciate they are not to everyone's liking, but I do like the look and with a good foam sealing gasket I haven't had any issues.

Thanks lads now I know why I keep seeing them 2nd hand and it says damaged clip, given the price 2nd hand I'll prob go new with the Ultimates which is why I asked about them. Nice to know they are plug and play, makes the job easy.
Now it's just the colour, I prefer the look of the chrome but then I think not much chrome on the car but quite a bit of black, decisions decisions.

I know the picture is of my 3 ring lights, but it may give an idea to you on how the different coloured lights look on a blue car

Thanks, Dert you even got the colour of my car correct which helps, I think the black as it echoes the black in the bumper and is understated like me Ho Ho.
PS I like your plate, I hope it refers to MG and not the amount of welding needed!
