    has anyone done or attempted to tint there own rear lights without buying the lamin x stuff and just using normal window tinting film? i tried today and it didnt go to well does anyone have tips on how to do this? i managed to do my front fogs and that turned out fine but the curve on the rear lights is proving difficult get around.

    do it properly or not at all is the best way to put it.

    get a sheet of lamin-x, a heat gun to stretch to the curves, and a sharp knife for the edges.

    lamin-x for the front lights is 40ish plus postage etc i think? i paid 50 for the main lights and fogs to be supplied and fitted.

    Don't do it - get MY09 or 11 lights as they are darker than 2007 lights

    On the subject does anyone know of a way to get the sportback led tails to look darker like the MY11 3door rear lights?
