Cheers.
How easy is to to do the LCI change? I thought it needed some re-coding etc?

The painted lights look OK to me.

as far as i know, you can order them from your parts department and re-coding is easy hovewer need to have it done at somewhere else...

Hey man how did you get them painted? I want to darken my tail lights. Also, do you know how I can clear the front lights below the headlights? They are like little 2 inch reflecters.

Looks nice, I like it, but the car must be washed at all times to pull that look!

Go for color-matched tails. It looks bad ass. I did it on my second Passat.

I mean exactly that, color matched tails. On a JzB M3 it would look very similar to normal tinted tails but on other cars, like my Passat, they would be body color so it looks like it has no lights until you turn them on. It's VERY polarizing. Some people love it, some hate it. I got a lot more positives than negatives, but like any mod, they won't please everyone.

Jon @ Jon's Tinted Tails did them. www.jonstintedtails.com

You can find more pics in his gallery. These are some crappy ones I have. I'll upload some from my PAS shoot later.
