Who cares ? !  ;D

What do they call these, Angel Eyes ? But as you say, rather a lot of cable ties in evidence - might not be too clever come MoT time. Still, they *do* look rather nice ....

Can anyone on here offer a translation summary for me? Thanks.

I’ve been watching these on eBay for a while they are made for Chevy g20 vans but they will fit in a 126 lamp hole

I don't expect them to pass an MOT but I saw them on a polish car on youtube and they looked superb.

People who want to pass their MOT and want to see the road ahead of them in the dark!

Not to my taste... even if they do shine correctly. I'm planning on getting LED lights but these look like the kind of thing a boy racer would buy for their modded 2002 Corsa crap-box.

I wasn't being entirely serious ... [removes tongue from cheek]   :o  but you must admit they look like fun,  some real eyes for the cheeky face of a 126.

Don't have  a 126 myself but I do rather fancy them for another car I have that is pure fun, though at £100 per lamp from eBay that's a bit steep. Although they claim to have E11 approval so that should get through the MoT, shouldn't it?

I also like the Taiwan brand, Crazy The God - how can you resist such wonderful marketing??

I don't suppose anyone knows what price the Polish source is asking? Piotross, any comment?

(Go on, Xylaquin, you know you secretly want a set ...  :P)

Well if you have Polish contacts, everything is cheap.  I've just bought a set of brand new plastic 126 bumpers for £75.

I think I'll be passing on the lights.

Mention of the lights on a Polish YouTube post "led" (geddit? D'you see what I did there ... ??) me to search...

Anyway, these two clips might be of interest. £1 to make the Angel Eye, presumably £99 to get E11 type approval !

*groan*

Some people have too much time on their hands (him not you).

Actually this is the clip I saw. Not a fan of this sort of thing normally, but took rather a shine to this little monster.

Yes, I can see why. It does look to be very competently done. As you say, the style is a matter of personal taste, but it does look to be very good technically. I am curious as to how he was able to drive freely around the city streets apparently with no registration plates. Was this some sort of promo filming that had dispensation from the local authorities, I wonder?
