Hello all,

Just so you know I couldn't leave. I heard it in my sleep. But I thought that maybe I could offer a mod to you s4 owners.



I can blackout your tail lights, I did this to my friend's car and he thought they looked better than s5 tail lights. I would offer his but they got pretty banged up in our engine work. But if anyone is interested just email me at [email protected] for further information. I will charge $50 and you pay shipping.

John

So you window tint from the inside?



I'm waiting for Rob to chime in with his thoughts.



Blacked out tails looks great, especially on black fcs..

I tint from the outside. As long as there aren't scrathed they hold up fine, even in high pressure car washs. In the day there are alittle hard to see but notihing worst than blackouts for any other vechicle. and at night they are fine.

Is it possible to use a slightly less darkness, in lieu of greater visibility? I guess that would be a "smoked" lens?
