Smoked tail lights

Where to get some quality cover or cut film for our tail lights? I want to see if anyone have some first hand experience. Seen lots of them online, but tough to tell quality

Smoked tail lights are ugly/tacky IMO. Instantly cheapen the look of any car.

Even for the civic M3, tinted tails would look cheesy.

I'm going to go against everyone here, but honestly. If the smoked tailights matches the theme of your car, then it will look good. For example, a blacked out car with a smoked taillights fits the trend.

But if you have a white M with brushed steel rims, and you throw on smoked taillights, that might look a bit off.

I'll post a pic of my e90 with smoked tails, and people are free to bash as much as they want

I smoked mine 6 months ago.... I lasted about 9 days and I ripped them off. Space gray looks good with tinted taillights too, except it just did NOT feel right. It's an M.... it just doesn't work.

Anyway, when I ripped them off my car I was in love with the LCI taillights all over again. It was like the day I first saw them.
