LCI Taillight Tint?

Hey guys, just had a quick question. Has anyone applied a tint film on the LCI rear lights of their m3? I tried searching around, but I couldn't find anything. If you have any pics of tinted LCI taillights, would you ever be so kind and post?

I'm looking to get this done, however I don't want the car to look foolish. And also, I'm not looking for limo tinted taillights, I just want to get a shade of tint applied on my taillights.

Thanks,
Sandy

LCI tails are just too nice to tint.

Mine aren't LCI, but they are tinted. If you decide to do it, I recommend you skip the tint and get them professionally painted.

These were done at IND, and I think they have a much more finished look.




Obviously, you can control how dark the tinting is. In person, the color looks more like the second picture (less red). I'm not a fan of the completely tinted tails, which is why I like that mine left the clear strip.
