Just a quick one, I've been recommended to get a set of fly eyes for my fiesta but I'm not to sure on them.

Has anyone ever fitted them and if so how did they look?

Also just wanted to get people opinion on them and if they think its a worth while mod

cheers

That is a good question lol, I'm not sure what there made of but it look like a kind of very very fine mesh that is meant to protect the headlights but also can add a darker tint to the lights

Fly eyes tend to darken considerably and I don't think would be legal. Not sure how they would work on the Fester's big single piece headlights as I have only seen them on lights which have separate headlights and indicators.

Have never really seen the point TBH...

It's a bit cheap, fades quickly and looks awful when they do; they're legal and don't affect much light but for a month or so application, hardly seems worth it.

fly eyes are perfectly legal, they protect the plastic on the lights as well as darken them as apposed to tinting them (which is illegal)... they look good imo, especially on darker cars, a few of my mates have them and i still aint got round to sizing them up my self
