Thanks bud. I know its boring black, but being a daily it sort of has to be low key. Contrasts well with the ivory interior.

My fav "out there" colour is the Byron Blue. In the flesh it looks immense.

I have to say thanks to you guys for pushing me to go for the Dynamic, it corners so flat at some very respectable speeds. The ride height is quite an experience.

I see what peoples love with RRS is all about now.

The guy we bought ours off, replaced it with a brand new Byron blue Autobiography. did look very nice, although it was a lovely sunny day and Loire Blue in the sun looks amazing, sadly only in the sun though LOL, all other times it just looks dark blue !!

They do corner better than their size and height suggests, but they are such nice cars and a lovely place to be.

They look so good in blue. Loire and Portofino look pure class.

LOL - I felt guilty having neglected the wife's steed a bit, So You made me clean the damn thing today, shame the sun was not out, having said that, nothing better than some tunes, some Stella's, some products and a bunch of Micro fibers !!

That looks beaut! The 5008 22s suit the RRS so well.

P.s love those deployables!!

I just fitted the new style 2018 rear lights on the wifes Sport, and although I like the way they function, I am not sure on the way they look. The Loire Blue just does not seem to look good with the "smoked out" look, and given ours has silver badges, roof and details which we like, they don't seem to work. Its quite an expensive upgrade, that I think the older style ones suit our car more !!

Is it that bad that you don't actually want to post pictures mate?

LOL ! yes and the car is filthy !!

A picture....



Oh see what you mean, like the look of the lights but then you notice the silver roof and the clear ones seem better placed. I would say the smoked lenses win slightly for me but that is just my opinion, very Marmite that fitting mate. what does the wife like? after all she is the one driving the RR and she will get the final say regardless we all know that.🤣

Both look good! Prefer the Oems in that pic.

What are they like at night time?

Are these the powerful UK ones?

Personally think the new rear lights make the older ones look really dated now. Can see where you’re coming from with the roof but I’m my opinion the newer ones look better.

it’s the same with all the bright chrome on the front lights. A bit of tiny film sorts that though.

I did tint both front and rear lights, but it looked so wrong, it is the colour of the smoked tint, looks good on colours like grey etc, but seriously clashes with the blue.

See, yours look great, but trust me it looked rubbish against the blue. Wish I took a shot now. The only way it will work against the blue is having a black hue !

I didn't think I would mod this one.

However the inner car forum predator got the best of me. Ordered gloss black grill and lettering.
