i bought some to darken out my lights, going for the "smoked" look on my car and brought it when i was getting my windows tinted and the guy basically turned me down to put it on.........said it was very tedious and time consuming and difficult to get just right So i've had it sitting in the original box for 2 yrs now, wasting away

Still doing the bronze wheels? Don't think it'll match up too well.

Tailiights are a big No No. But headlight film. It's dangerous. It may make or break the car. Just like proper wheels

I have a MR too, decided against the yellow lamin-x and went with cheaper Nokya yellow bulbs and had EAS code my halos to be 100% brightness all the time. I get compliments all the time on the "racecar look." It may not be everyone's cup of tea but I like it a lot.

I already have the PIAA yellow bulb...not coded yet...i wonder if there's a big difference on brightness after coding...

There is a HUGE difference. When I first put in the bulbs I was disappointed, the coding made a world of difference

I think it looks good. Its legal is most states. My concern is not so much the looks but protecting your headlamps from simple chips. As cars age they get chipped. You can always wet sand and buff but this isn't a bad option.
