I used Nightshade to tint the red sections of my 330ti taillights. It looks good. Make sure to put some clear coat on top.
If you can't find a can locally, Amazon has it.

Make sure you know how to properly clear and buff it. If you don't it looks really tacky and cheap

If CT does not have it check PartSource. I noticed PartSource had a better selection of VHT paints when I was looking for caliper paint for my wife's Highlander.

Sand it down real good, all the way down to a fine grain like 1000, then wet sand it. Do just like you are doing a headlight restore to prep the surface. Make sure you wipe it with a moist cloth before painting to remove any extra dust.

Be careful using this on the front turn signals. When illuminated, it will appear red, which may be against local laws. You may want to look at using Rust-Oleum Lens Tint Spray Paint.
