I don't see what the new fad about smoking lights is, it looks hideous on any car. To each his own, if you think it looks good then it does.

I've seen it on the SG and JB and it looks ok. Maybe it's the quality of the pic but the smoked tails don't look that great on the MB.

Don't listen to what anyone says bro. It looks hundred times better than blacklines in person. Its more rare. Its cheaper. And you can always go back to stock... I get nothing but compliments on mine

IMO, blacklines or stock look better than smoked.

I think tinting the taillights look better than stock, but still does not look appealing as blacklines.. plus you tinted it too dark.. if you want to remain keeping the tinted tailights, tint it to around Turkishexpress' darkness (which looks 'smoked' where yours look 'blacked out').

Lol, so what makes your opinion more valued than ours? It looks good on your car, but not his.
