Not a big fan of "tinted" or "blacked out" headlights or tails.

Only tails I like other than OEM are blacklines, which are pretty much OEM.

Tinted heads or tails makes the car look like cheap civic or something. They look like quality overlays though.

I even like my clear sidemarkers, I thought about getting them tinted but actually decided I think the clear "matches" my car better.


My amber overlays will be here tomorrow - check back this weekend for pictures!!!!

The vinyl overlay looks horrible. Look at the bottom it's merely cut just like a square...

Got mine from firearm and am pretty happy with it for $13 or whatever. Definitely good enough to hold me over until I can get the headlights to OSS.

Horrible is strong words... Nothing some scissors or an exacto knife can't fix.... Remember these things are like $15 bucks.

Curious to see what mine will look like...

Sup Black,

I will check back with pics once I put these overlays on... can't justify the cost to send my headlights to OSS so I will do this for now.

Heres mine, This is the second set of lights that Ive put them on. As you can see, the top end needs a little trimming, which I did to the previous set, but I got lazy this time around. Maybe ill get around to it later, but for 13 bucks, cant go wrong.

3rd link is to my car

I have used BlueBat overlays to remove the amber in my headlights, the cut was precise and covered the headlights perfectly.

c/f exotics tuning lip, not sure if they make it anymore, but I think I read LTBW offers a polyurethane version
