[attachmentid=20510]Hello again bimmerfans.
Need another opinion.
What do you all think about these blacked out lights.
They are from an Ebayer in Germany.
Has anyone here put blacked out lights on their e30s? Any legal problems as far as visability??

they look killer, unfortunately during a bright day, seeing them actually light up can be a different situation. blacked out lights are a PITA to see sometimes.
i agree with bimmin'88
save yourself the dough and do it yourself.
actualy you just have to spray the paint out of a good gun and have the lens preped prolerly snd it will look the same as trhe ones you see there or brighter whatever you choose, it all depends on your skill with a gun. your just mad because you probable paid out your ass for them.

Okay, i'll go get some "tallent". You've obviously never seen a spray can job in real life. Unless you paint it with a gun, it's going to look like shit. Also, I didn't pay out of my ass for anything. I don't have smoked tail lights.

Lets just say I can paint with a can as well as many with a cup gun. Were talking about tail light lenses that wil be sprayed with a transparent media that is designed for this application. Not rocket sience, just good preparation, a steady hand and an eye for detail. And done right your lights will work fine in daylight conditions.
I'm out on this one.

A faint dark tint would look awesome, but those are too black.
87 325iS, I don't mean to add fuel to the fire here, but what kind of paint are you using? The outcome is only as good as the kind of paint you buy. If you buy shitty paint, you get shitty looking rear lights. Most people I'd fathom have the skill enough to spray tint their lights.
