Pic of black corners, no amber and blue lens

I hated the amber on my corners on my E90. I used Modbargins blacked out corners and then laid LaminX style blue film over the whole headlights and fogs. The blue made the black look like wet paint

The black vinyl took about 30 mins and using a heat gun to shrink some areas because of the way the lens curves. I waited two days for that to dry, and then put the blue film on (45mins) I was worried the black vinyl would look weird with the blue over it but it turned out perfect and really matched the glossy paint.
BTW I also did the rear tail lights and made my own black lines with with very dark film on the top. I will post pix of that soon, because all I have is this horrible camera phone one.
