Looking mint mate! looks great on the rims. I'd wait a while so the new springs can settle before you decide how much to chop off.

Looking goooooood! Always liked the yellow headlights on 300s. Not sure I've got the guts to do mine though. I do have a lot of yellow tint left though, and spare glass . . . .
