they shouldn't be darker. They should not have a reverse light, since that was around the number plate. Maybe the missing of the little white squares makes them look darker? or they have been tinted.


Cheers

Your old EA ones maybe faded, makes the new ones look darker.

Eb and ED are the same, are they different design then your EA ones?

as far as how dark they are, it probably has got to do with the condition of the plastic

[QUOTE="s**t illegal to tint your tail lights, yes. But if you don't tint them too much, the cops won't know.

tickford_EB - EA lights had the reverse lights in the avtual tail light assembly, and not on the boot garnish like the EB+ had.


Cheers

yes, but as well you will notice the lights from an EB or ED are darker than standard EA lights.
