Tinted tail lights

Has anyone gotten their tail lights tinted? Just curious what they look like on a WK and were you satisfied or hate them. Just trying to figure out if $50 per tail is worth it.. Thanks in advance!

Re: Tinted tail lights

Do it! But just FYI, if you don't get LED tails they have a tendency of warping.

Mine...

Re: Tinted tail lights

They were professionally painted. Essentially, it's clear coat with a small bit of black paint mixed in. They're dark! But with the lights on you can hardly tell they're even tinted.

Ohh sweet! That's awesome. I was worried if i got a tint from this tint place near me, that it would decrease the light output.

Re: Tinted tail lights

Would any regular tint hurt the light output?

Re: Tinted tail lights

Any time you tint them they're going to slightly Reduce light output. With your LEDs you'll be fine. I've got actual tint on the reverse sections of my Benz tails and its just the right amount to look different

Re: Tinted tail lights

Tint always reduces visibility. I want those following me to see my brake lights or 4 ways.
