    Anyone used lamin-x for rear lights? I've ordered a set of rear LED's but couldnt find any somked out, so I want to try smoking them out with gun smoke lamin-x, im wondering if the red will be noticeable?
    also what size would I be best getting for rear lights? I'll probably fit the lamin-x before I swap the lights too

    I ordered up a set of tinted headlamp and yellow fogs for my Ibis White 2010. Have not put them on yet cause the cut outs didn't seem to match well. Contemplating keeping it or returning it...

    I had lamin-x film on the tail lights of my impreza and legacy GT and it came out great though.

    I always had an issue where people thought I was flashing them, and they would flash back (adaptive bi-xenons). Since having Lamin-X tint this has stopped. so headlight output must be reduced. Stops stonechips well though.

    Left light tinted, right light not.
