I was eyeing up a nice 45 on the motorway last night, whilst stuck in a traffic queue.

I noticed that his rear lights looked like they'd been painted black (but still showing brake lights clearly), so it obviously wasn't black paint.

When telling a friend, he pointed out that it was probably some boy racer who'd placed his mum's old tights over both lights, giving the effect.

Whilst I laughed, it gave me divine inspiration to try the same thing on my 400.

Has anyone heard this theory before, and is it realyl commonly known that it's realy tights they use? If so, don't think I'll bother :)

Thanks!

was going to say, very common,

my mates escort is black & he had his lights painted black, IMHO looked stupid, & he changed them back after a few months, not sure if he had aggro with the police or not as they seem to love him.....

Theres also a gree Rover 600 round here & hes had his lights painted green, another one I don't like......
