Request: Smoked Tail Light pics

Trying to get a good idea of what portion of the tail lights I would like darken. At first I thought of just the upper portion but now I'm contemplating if to darken the top and button only leaving the middle portion red. Anyways pictures would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thats them. From the back looking directly at them you'd see why they call them black lines.

And if you just want to get rid of the silver inner tail lights, you can just do the HalfLine mod.

The lines line-up perfectly, they're in the exact same spot. LCI and non-LCI tails to NOT line up.

EDIT: Dude, you have both, you should know they line up!

I absolutely LOVE Blacklines.

They are a must if you own a pre-LCI E90, IMO.

I think the OP is interested in E92 tail light pics.
I saw blacklines on a 335i last week, and for some reason, it didn't look good. I planned on buying them if I purchase an E90 instead of an E92, but I'm not sure anymore. Must've been the paint.
