Long time since i post some pictures [:D]

I have bought new wheels again!

*just joking* [:p]

I have bought a set of smoked frontblinker to my car!
New, shipped from Germany.
I have also taken off the ugly extralights from the front of my car. Look´s much nicier whitout them.

Well here´s some pictures for you guy´s! [:D]

This photo was taken before i "mod" the blinker:






I dident like the orange "cups" into the reflector, so after much hard work i get rid of them! [;)]

Now the car look´s like this:









Homemade "glovers" 4watt light in the blinker.

Looks good, and sounds just like me. I recently changed the rear lights to fully red ones, and I removed my extralights just 5 hours ago.
Hehe! [;)] Well...o had full red ones...but i give them away to a friend who like them. i Hate them! [:p] MUCH better with the original ones! [:D]

But it is bad light when driving in dark. thats not good. but soon the spring are here and the light outside! [:D]

didn't you have white blinkers before? The first pic (before) looks like it is smoked but with orange bulbs.

i would install philips silvervision bulbs in your new ones, so that they would keep your current look but then light up orange, so as to stay legal and still look nice.

your car looks nice ;)

why didn't you try to smoke/tint your white indicators? this is what i will try to do this or next week, cause like you i think they are too white!


oh and btw when i read your first 2 lines about the wheels i went "WHAATTT!!? [:0]" lol good one ;)

Yes i had white ones before. [;)]But smoked are much nicier.
I already have silverbulbs. Don´t you see that?[:I]

I don´t like homemade tint/smoked lights. It never bee the same as the one´s who can be bought.

i dont know, with the indicators lit, they look like they are lighting up white, not orange. the silvervision bulbs "look" silver/white, but light up orange.

with regards to the homemade ones, i guess you have a point. but since i already spend about £25 on white ones, i am not willing to spend another £50 on smoked ones!! [:p] so i will have to DIY them. ;)

So that's what you've been up to! Lovely pics as always. How did you install the side lamps on your turn indicators? Now I see why alot of people like the European lights!

On one of your pics, I saw "icicles" dripping and freezing from your car. I never saw one on a W123 before. [:D]

Hehe. That´s nicier than i was on my car with the same style of glasses. fully red.

Have you tinted yourself? If so..you know that when you turn on the turnsignal, the blinker would not blink orange. Here it´s in the law that it must be orange.

I bought the lights from a finnish mb-forum. But yes,
they are home-made. The law about the orange blinkers is same in Finland. That's why i saved the original lights. The red lights are well painted, its hard to say are they stock or painted. I'll just say to cops that they're from US model. Then it's "legal". [:D]
