      Why "Smoke" a "LIGHT" ??? That makes no sense!

      That's like putting Tint on your flashlight lens so you can look "cooler" in the dark and trees jump in front of you and BOOM!

      Hey guys, I have an idea! Lets make our Turn Signals Smoked as well so people can barely notice us turning and we get T-Boned!

      Because it's kinda like the guys who get 12k HID's because they're purple and wanna be "unique". It's annoying, and pointless, and they're horrid, they kill your light output, and "smoking" everything and "murdering out" cars is (99.9% of the time) ugly and for people who have no style. If you really wanna get something that doesn't come stock as prev. stated, get Ocean tails (not stock on US models) or get some of the M3 styled LED tails (if you can make them work) or something else. With these cars it's clean>obnoxious/ricey/heylookatmei'mcool.

      one coat isn't really dark at all, i wouldn't think that would be bad.

      it's just when people have 5 coats and they are black as night

      I took off my tinted tail because, as I use to love the look in high school, I think they look gaudy and make the whole car look "cheaper"



      I think it looks alot cleaner.. Imo..

      Most of the time when people smoke their turn signals. They install brighter lights as I did so nothing really changes but the color .
      Sure you don't do cocaine ,you just like the way it smellz.

      This was a much better explanation than I had.

      Before



      After

      I feel mine are subtle and take the edge off the extreme red. They're tinted with 3M 30%.

      Another name for Altezza-style tail lights. Never understood the "euro" name.

      But smoked tails are dangerous and they look cheap. The way toocooldg has done his, however, is subtle and definitely adds to the appearance overall
