Bit modern and ordinary for B and C isn't it :?

I find those VW light units have a serious drawback. Maybe it's just me but when the headlights are lit I find the indicators very hard to see and distinguish...

I guess the maker knows most of those who drive German cars don't understand how to use indicators anyway so it's inconsequential if they are effectively invisible with the headlights on :lol: :lol:

Not so much about the lights being anything interesting in themselves, but a "lights on" photo, in a scenic setting appropriately accessorised, creates an interesting "brochure shot".

Well I did sit through the 20minute video talk through of the Princess on twin cam's youtube channel.

He particularly liked the lamps of the later version which he described as trapezoid.

I did always like the first incarnation of the princess in the Wolseley Trim, For a brief period in 1975 BL badged the wedge Morris, Austin and Wolseley, but within 6 months it became plain "Princess".

So here's the lights fest for the BL Wedge.

I've always liked the shape of the Princess and the lights enhance its looks :D

I particularly like the shaped headlights on the red car at the top :cool:

I always thought the Wolseley version had nice wheels.....the FCF ain't got a thread for nice wheels, so more lights to look at as well!
