lol yeah I didn't imagine it was your choice, just saying get rid of them. but like blingy said, it's a lot of money for lights. Maybe you can tint the ones you have?

They're not bad. But in the end mate it's YOUR car. You have to build it the way that you like it, not what everyone else wants.

You could. Though i don't think the person selling would want to sell just the lights and be left with the centre garnish to get rid of.
But those URAS ones look the goods.

the oem lights will fit with that garnish, but like previously posted who would want to sell the lights separate.
