I'm sure you have seen plenty of tinted tails. In my opinion, blacked out looks like crap...on ANY car. I am, however, a fan of Lamin-x smoked film. I have considered it for my Euro tails (would make the cherry tails less vibrant on a grey car).
I said right off the bat, that Fahrenheit's are notorious for black and yellow themes. It's old. It would be nice to see something different. Like a color matched grille shield, color matched side markers, color matched side skirts, color matched rear valance.
People choose black because it is cheap. Well, sometimes it looks cheap. That is all I am getting at.
Now, get your panties out of a bunch.
Well alrighty then. As someone who has been on Vortex since 2009 (under a preivous user name) and has owned seven Volkswagens (from aircooled to MkV), I am merely trying to give some constructive critisism and advise. I used to work for Volkswagen, and I have two friends with Fahrenheits (one GLI and one GTI). I am trying to be a productive member of the Vortex community. If you would prefer the following:
"lower it or gtfo"
"looks like sh*t"
then I can always oblige.
well, if you want the black and yellow thing then do a yellow and black checker theme on your lower grill clip, and you can have a nicevw taxi, because that is what I am seeing in front of me. looks like every stock-ish fahrenheight on this site. and not to be a douche, but what is built? looks bought to me

I also have a yellow/black 98 Cobra Convertible and a yellow/black 02 Wrangler. I blacked out the wheels on both as well as other various body parts. I'll do the same to this lil beast.
But mad respect to everyone's opinion....they are, after all, like azzholes...everyone has one and most stink.

So glad I don't have to worry about "winter mode"!
