Smoked lenses

Hey guys i have a 2001 BMW 330Ci and i wanted to get some smoked lenses for my it. i found a site http://www.bimmian.com/10/SOF/ that sells pre cut tint for your lenses, but im not sure this will give me a good look compared to buying a complete new setup. should i go with this site or does anyone have any other opinions on what I should do? i.e. xenons, LEDs, etc

Tint on amber always looks like sh!t. Buy some clear plastic corners from eBay. Depo brand. Nice and cheap.

Ok so far im thinking http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46/light...il-lights.html and http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46/light...e-markers.html and http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46/light...er-lights.html, all smoked. I wanted to get http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46/light...eadlights.html but it seemed pretty pricey, would it be worth it or should i just get clear corner lights and keep the headlights stock/clear corner lights with a smoked lens from bimmian?

If you have pitted headlight lenses just get new lenses. However if you have the stock halogen lights and want projectors I guess that could be an option.

I am not sure about in Maine. But in California people get hassled about it. They have it done at my friends shop. End up getting a fixit ticket. Come back, get it taken off. Show the police, pay there $25.00. Come back to the shop and get it put back on.
