Well to follow the theme of black and silver I did a cheap mod to the headlights, which I like.

meh... reminds me of the 80's. I also prefer function over form, I imagine it cuts out a LOT of light. Other than that I love your car!

You lose about 10-15% but as I have Xenon’s I’m not fussed.

And yes reminds me of the 80's too had them on my Capri.

This is how I did it following there video which was a great help but also when doing it us a cheap washing up liquid with just a little put in to your spray water bottle as this will help[ move the fill around.

decalfx.com (http://www.decalfx.com/applying_lens_film.html)

The roof dose not need the windows taken out as there is black trim well before the windows.

If you click on the WWW link at the bottom your see loads of info of my cars plus another link to my MR2 and loads of other MR2's.

Looks good. I've been thinking about trying some yellow film on my car. I think it will offset the gray color I have pretty well. The black roof looks so much better on a lighter color car. Now that my car is darker the roof just blends in.

Miracle whip, I love your hood. What manufacturer?

Also doc, how much did that OEM rs4 body run you? If you don't mind saying. That looks so damn hot. I thought the fenders looked a little flaired.

I commend you for doing something different. I wouldn't do that to my ride though. Something about retaining a stock-like look does it for me.

I have no idea as these are stock units from a RS4 so if you can find the spec on them that what there be.

I will get some more pictures up but over here when I finish work its already dark so I will get some up at the weekend.

Looks good. I've been thinking about trying some yellow film on my car. I think it will offset the gray color I have pretty well. The black roof looks so much better on a lighter color car. Now that my car is darker the roof just blends in.

starting: Here is someone's stock a4 sig pic that I photoshoped the yellow headlights and a few other things on the stock car.

doc: I cannot hold it back any longer. I have never told you this but, I am in love with your car! *Drops on one knee* W359BOM, will you marry me? lol
Seriously, looks better every time I see it. Keep up the good work. [up]
