Tinted my tail lights.

Ok I finished my tint on my tail lights. Dam that was hard to do!
Getting all the bubbles out was a bitch. I think it works to have toned down the red to go more with all the black wheels and trim.

you guys are probably sick of seeing my car post ... LOL

I predict that by the time you are done, your X1 will be all black, top-to-bottom, inside-out.

Yep but Im finished on the outside withe the exception of adding the wheel spacers in a month. I just ordered a set of led lights for the inside now the trick is to add the ambiance lights to add to what is already on the car without getting too tacky like a disco tech but just enough to add a little ambiance again this is going to be a trial project as I may scrap the whole thing if it looks too childish ... LOL

It is fun that you're leading the way on this stuff. I read the thread title and immediately though 'duh, I know who posted this.'

Tinted tail lights is a sensitive thing, too much and it just looks awful, but you hit that one spot on, it looks great on your car. Now figure out how to make the rear turn signals orange, I really prefer orange over red.

Great Mods BBOI!!
Maybe I missed it in a previous post, but I noticed you didn't black out the badge?
Keeping the original logo with the blue and white?

Im going to do the carbon fiber over the blue to see what that looks like. I just read online where that would be the most easy and cost less way to go.

How do the tails look at night? Are you sacrificing much in terms of night visibility? That would be my only concern.

I'd think you could simply order a new rear light lens set from one of the many countries where turn lights have to be orange.
