    well as my car will be coming back together in the next few weeks, i've had a change of heart with my rear lights :sad: i can't decide whether to keep my all clear rear lights or go for the red/clear ones. i like the clears, but they do tend to smell of chav/boyracer, but they're a lot rarer! so...
