Thanks Guys

I used Light Smoked Vinyl Film. I do like the Blacklines as well But this was soo much more cost effective and less permanent.

HEADLIGHT E92 BMW
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...8160&viewitem=

TAILLIGHTS E90 BMW
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...4591&viewitem=

Those are the Auction i purchased from.. Thought what the heck 15 bucks to tint the lights Lets try it out. Great quality Film, awesome fitting. Easy intall if you know BASICS knowledge of Tint/Vinyl install. I didnt want it too smoked so I chose to order Light Smoke Tint. I offered the seller 10 a set and was accepted.

Just wanted to throw this out there for the members. I was thinking about doing it and couldnt find too much on here of Vinyl Tinting. So incase anyone is wondering.... here you go..

I own a few Subways.

I should have taken some pics with the delivery car topper and the huge magnets when it was on it for a opening I did.

Nope.. Didnt have to remove anything just popped the hood to make it easier to slide the tint in the cracks a little better. Very easy install with time.

I dont know what to do about installing it if you have the 3m Clear Bra on your lights or if you stick and slide around on top of that but you might have to peel off the clear and apply the smoke which would protect the light lens as well.

Hmmm....I may have to try this out. Only $15 loss if I don't like it.

Says light smoke allows for 87% of the light through.
