As far as I know you have to use a tint product similar to windows for the head lights, possibly the same with the tail, though you might be able to buy them smoked from many on the online BMW auto parts stores. Here is a link for the head lights to check out.
BMW Headlight Tint and Protection Kits
Just did a google for this site.
Also be aware that it is Illegal in some states to tint the headlights so make sure to check your local regulations.

Steve I was trying to find any information about using tinted headlights in Florida, but I could not. Do you know anything is it illegal in Florida or no?

Thanks
