blacked out taillights are dangerous, both for you and anyone following you. I hate driving behind someoen in bad weather with blacked out tails, might as well just get rid of the lights altogether.

Stepping down from my soapbox now

It does look good, and like Grizzly said, it matches really nice with the tint

I lowered it and added an exhaust finisher. Only one pic for now, I'll try to get more posted this weekend.

No worries...I was planning on taking it off this weekend as it came out darker than I wanted it to

Going to have to agree with the hate on blacking out the tail lights. I never understood it. Looks bad and is very dangerous, especially in bad weather. I honestly wish cops gave out more tickets for it.

i disagree on the looking bad part if it is done properly, but the being dangerous part i will agree on, no need to beat a dead horse anyway since it was just a week trial deal on my part just to see how it looked

To each their own. What people do to there vehicle is all up to them. I am just not a fan of making your car more dangerous on the road. What really makes me confused is when people do it to the headlights. Why would you make it harder to see ahead?

Well it all depends on the transparency of the tint, at least for taillights, I agree with you on the headlight part. But as for the tail lights, it depends how dark you go. I think it looks good and safe when you find a balance point.
