To TINT my tail or not tint my tails??...Thats the question.

Hey guys, I can get some tail tint from a guy in my area for like $10. But Im curious if I should do it. What do you guys think? Should I go for a more aggresive look and tint my tails (red part only) or should I just leave them stock. My car as you can see is very cleanly modded, just slammed and cleaned up. What do you guys think?

I think it would look good on you're car, I actually just did this on mine (AW) and it looks pretty good.

Yeah I will, although it may take a few days. My lap top is broken() and the computers at work have so many firewalls i cant really upload pics on it. But I will try to get some on here in the next few days if my computer is fixed.

My Ride: parting out...=(
since your car is a darker color I recommend going with a lighter tint. I feel like when you get blacked out taillight tint on a dark car you have nothing in the rear to break up all that dark color. On a white or silver car however dark tint looks great. Your car looks great and will look even better with some tint, dooooo it!

Yah i hear ya. When its too dark theres no contrast. But on the other hand I kinda like the blacked out look just cant picture it on my car for some reason. The guy said that the tint is 10% so imguessing that its really black.

i would, IMO it would look good, but it is your car, and in the end YOU need to do what YOU think would look good.
