What? Punctuation is a good thing.

Since you asked our opinions, I vote no. It's a pretty nice, economy car. Dress up seems kind of pointless, and is kind of a "HEY LOOK AT ME" attitude I don't understand. If it's a nice classic muscle car, or something high performance I understand, but if it's a ford focus keep it simple.

At least make sure light can still get through...don't be one of those jackasses that tints their lights so much, you can't see them even when it's completely dark.

I like the look of the tails a lot. If I were the guy whose car is in the picture though I would lose the badges and the extra spoiler. I hate the look of a spoiler on top of an already spoily trunklid.

I have to agree with Joey. I almost read ended a guy because he had his tails so dark I couldn't tell that he hit the brakes. I only noticed that for some reason I was suddenly going much faster than him...

Lol yeah nightshade seems to by my only option right now. Especially since I've got a few cans in my garage right now. Tinting is expensive but on the other hand you get what you pay for.

Sorry, but tinting of your tail lights is just a dumb idea...IMHO. There is a reason it is illegal in many states. Those lights are designed for a specific reason (per DOT regulations)....safety for yourself and your fellow drivers. They are designed to provide proper visibility to your fellow drivers both day and night. Tinting them reduces that safety factor. Now the laws do vary from state to state as far as how much light is visible at a set distance. So be sure to check....

I know when I step on the brake I want to know that the guy behind me clearly sees that....day or night!

I do agree they do look cool, on a show car. But if you are doing on your daily driver, I would think twice about.

They aren't illegal in Ohio. If I'm blacking my car out, which I am, I have to finish the job with the tails.
