Spray tint is irresponsible.
Buy a set of OE R/C/Rs, sidemarkers and corners, replace your headlamp lenses and call it a day.

Clear is the right way to go. Dark tint looks tacky and is dangerous when it's very bright or rainy. Clear/white will make your car look 5 years younger. It's amazing how much good a pair of clean, clear headlights and clear rear turn signals does.

The first two options don't even belong with the second two.
Just don't use that junk on your car. Find a more classy way to make it yours.
WTF is up with spray tint? For those too lazy to do real tint? Give me a break...

I appreciate the useful answers! I think ill be leaving the last two options out for now. I found a set of clears with LEDs that look really clean, leaning toward that route.

OEM clear corners and sidemarkers from ECS (get the corner with the black trim) as for the tail lights either red/clear/red or eagle eye led
