I went with medium smoke and I feel it's perfect. It's still see through to where you can see the red as a cherry and the white as a grey. And I get a nice tint shade of darkness. Had I gone darker I feel maybe it could've been an issue, I don't know.

That's how I like it. I'm gonna do basically the same thing that I did to my cadi. It's dark but not black (no rice lol)

Haha. It's nice because when it's cloudy I still get that darker look since there isn't much light to shine thru.

Yup that's true and also at night it looks really dark. I only got one smoked lights ticket in almost 2 years of driving my V and never during the past 2 to 3 years of having my lights smoked so hopefully I won't get tickets with the 7. It's only $25 but it's a waste of time

Very true. I believe I have 35% tint (car came with it) and it being a cloudy day, a motorcycle cop got his sight on me. I guess it might've looked darker. He was going opposite way too.

Are these the lights you are wanting to remove?

http://tis.spaghetticoder.org/s/view.pl?1/07/46/18

If not, click on the blue highlighted url directory at the top of the page at the /lights section and it will list how to remove/replace any of your exterior light fixtures.


Lol, disregard. This thread was linked to another one and I thought I was still posting in that thread. Whoops.
