Default Darker Tail-Lights

Ok since i don't have an SSE or an SSEi my tailights are just straight red. I want to get the SSE or SSEi look on the taillights. I broke it down to two choices, physically tint the tail lights with tint?..or invest in some actual tail lights, which could get very pricey for just tail lights. Any suggestions? I like the darker look to the taillights, looks good.

well u can get them installed yourself or you can put your own tint on them. I have seen a lot of SE'* with the sse-i tailights. Probably got it from a wrecked one I believe.

I think I can help you here! I used a liquid tint on my rear tail lights & then clear coated them. The cops can't touch me either since it'* not covers (which are illegal in my little part of this world). I thought when I bought this car that the tail lights were too bright & distracted your view of the car as a whole. You kept wanting to focus on the tail lights not the car itself. My lights are now 5 shades darker than stock, even darker than the GTP'*. Check it out for your self:

Rat, I've been considering that, but I was also considering tinting the small lights on the trunk lid, too, except the lenses for the backup lights. Why did you stop where you did?

Is that you on the trunk?

I think I need to post a picture but it will make most run, actually it should clear the forum like a prepubescent flatulent experiment.
