Default Clear or tint?

Thinking about whether I want to clear my tails, or tint my tails....I'm leaning towards clearing, but tinting is much easier lol. Opinions please!!

i say clear, IMO i don't think the tint looks that great, like the stripes on the SSEi are cool but completely black i don't really like...

Yep, clear AND tint I personally prefer a darker, richer red as opposed to all out black. Here'* a chop I did a while ago on someone'* car.
By the way, has anyone tinted the 3rd brake light to match on their 00+ before?
