Smoked/Blacked out rear lenses

I see alot of people here list "smoked/blacked out" lenses as one of their mods, but i can't seem to find any. All i've seen is the vinyl film products. Are there any actual lense replacements anywhere? Thanks

Unless you go with aftermarket LEDs, which IMO look cheesy, you will need to use a tint film or tint spray on your OE lenses.

Thanks Nick. What do you think is better, film or spray? Where would i get the spray? What i'm worried about with the film is tiny bubbles or creases in it.....especially if i did it Would a tint shop beable to do this relatively easy?

Tint film is a better solution IMO. It is UV protected and fully removable in case you need to turn the car back to stock. It also does not require removing the tails to be sprayed.
