Read the third post. Apparently theres up to a $350 fine in MA if you are caught with red lights. If you paint your bowls red and have your DRL's on I would assume the light output would appear red. Not worth it IMO. Go with yellow or black

Yellow should be your first and only choice if your going to do this mod...black is not so bad in most cases though

sorry if bad quality in pics, they were taken with nexus one.

i'll take pics at night to see visibility at night with the high beams and post them afterwards.
How do you get the xenon shrouds off?

Anyone try Shadow chrome tint? I feel like it'd give you a good balance of looks and functionality, as the bowl would still reflect some light. Right?

Took a shot at one of the shrouds didn't come out as clean as I wanted but still looks menacing. I didn't have time to do the passenger side ill tackle it one of these days.
