Ambers, ambers, ambers...

So, I've only heard of two ways to get rid of ambers.
1. Euros
2. Vinyl

Euros are too expensive, and I'm worried that vinyl is going to look like duct tape or just a sticker on my headlights...

Are there any other options?

Do the vinyl's look cheap and crappy in person?

Theres also buying the covers from bimmiam or Jlevi i think, eyelids i guess their called or something, which just covers the amber. Or you can hit up a member on here to see if he can put cf in there for you? Or just paint, thats another option as well.

I have full headlight tint from Bimmian.com and it looks great. Dulls the orange down quite a bit. I think the vinly amber gone stuff looks just fine as well. Get a tint though, not something that looks like carbon like was stated above.

The ones from Bimmian look better then the duct tape looking vinyl stickers. The only thing I don't like about the Bimmian ones are the price. $149 for a set is rather high I think.

I just got the windows tinted today, 35% front, 20% back, and it looks great... I wonder if I go back to the tint place and ask him for some scraps of tint... I could take those scraps and cover the side markers, tailights and ambers... Should I ask him for limo, 5%, 20%?
