Hello everybody. First post on the forums. This is a great place and I've learned a lot of stuff here. So thank you all. Also if there is a thread somewhere similar to this, or if I'm in the wrong area, I apologize in advance. Just woke up and haven't had my coffee yet lol.

Anyway, I have a Dark Red/Maroon 06 Charger R/T. Recently installed a Magnaflow tru-x pipe exhaust system and a pair of projector headlights with halos. The headlights have the black background color. (similar to http://www.speed-element.com/catalog/sonar_05-08_charger_black_pro_hl.jpg)

I'm thinking of changing the tail lights as well but for the life of me I can't decide on which option to go with. The options are:

1- JDM black LED tail lights (picture in link)

2- Smoked LED tail lights (same style as above, picture in link)

3- Tinting the stock tail lights (again picture in link just so you have an idea of what i mean)

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Also if someone has a same colored charger with one of these options and can post a pic it would be awesome. Personally I'm leaning more towards option 1, the JDM black LEDs. But since I can't find pictures of them already installed I'm having a hard time deciding.

Thank you in advance, and sorry about the long post.

Peace

Yeah either just tint them or do what nightmare said, paint the sides to match the color of your paint and tint them. btw fyi, JDM stands for japanese domestic market... so yeah. just pointing that out, cheap products will give you just that, a cheap tacky look. look around for other peoples tail mods, i would post pics but im in class lol...

Thanks for all the advice folks. Think I'm just gonna tint them. Managed to find some pics and they seemed to be the best option.

About the JDM thing lol thanks for clarifying that for me. saw a site which named them like that (not sure why) and i didn't know what it meant lol

Thanks again everyone.

Peace

I have a question regarding tintmytaillamps.com

Im looking at getting the sides body matched and the face tinting, but on there site is "125 returned.' Does that mean you pay $125 total for everything after you send in your tail lamps or does it mean $125 is returned to you once they recieve your tail lamps?

So basically is it $125 or $50 to have your lights tinted?

That website no longer runs from what I understand. The company that was doing those tail lamps was essentially 402 Motoring out of Avon, NJ. You can check them out HERE

I'd color match and tint them it makes the tail lights blend into the body, JM2cents!
