Tint them but why buy new third break light? Why buy new side markers? They look good just get them darker and tint the tails and rev. lights. Do your rev lights stick out more than stock always wandered, like yours alot. Saw one around here and it had crome and they stuck out. I like yours alot more than theres not a big fan of crome.

yea i just dont know if ishould do it or not because it may look weird seeing i have a black car. and you really cant leave the reverse un tinted like the normal stock lights because it would look weird
no one that i know of has a black balt with the same lights as i so i guess ill never know what it looks like

unless someone wants to photoshop em???

Mine are prolly illegal.... haha, i put it on too thick, but im getting diff ones soon, it was just a quick cheap mod, had them for a month not gotten pulled over

i think black on black would look good, whether theyre really tinted or lightly tinted
