Dark Smoke Taillight Cover - SMASH or TRASH?

Hi, I just bough these dark smoke vinyl taillight covers. I'm NOT settled on them yet. Would greatly appreciate peoples' advice. I'm trending towards liking them. I don't like them on the side markers given my car is CRT the black on the side looks odd. But on the rear it seems to blend nicely.

Thanks, Nino. I don't want the car to start looking ghetto-esque.

Your car really needs nothing... Well, more power is always good...

I was copying you. Did you do the side markers too? I don't like the sides. I do like the back. Not sure about front.

Wow. Good to know about the tires and wheels. Stock is the way to go. I'll replace these tires with the same.

Track on the left is Thunder Hill. Track on right is Laguna. I also bought Sonoma Raceway, which I've done in an R8, but haven't added it yet.

Not good, IMO. The after burner tail lights that a couple members on this forum have made would be awesome and not "ghetto-esque"

Add it,it's not what mode of ride that you've done it in,it's the fact that you've been on that track.If that were the case i would have to give up Daytona,Road America,Etc.and thats not happening.

I think just a little to dark for your car, just a opinion.

I'm keeping the track stickers. I realize they are probably unpopular but I've seen 911s here on the street with them.

Too dark in my opinion, starts to look ghetto like said above. Also in CA you're just asking for it. If you get rear ended, they'll say they couldn't see your brake lights and you're fuked if they lawyer up..

Too shiny... our red needs a more of a smoked black. On my VR car the dark glossy black worked everywhere on the GBE not so much...

i'm not a fan of blacked out lights in general...also, like someone stated earlier, you're giving someone a way out if you get rear-ended, depending on local laws

I have them all around except the side markers......however, my car is black. As for your ride looking ghetto....well i wouldnt go adding a bunch of chrome. IMO that looks ghetto. If blacked out is not your thing then sell'em.....im sure they will go quick. BTW....i dont know how anal the LEO's are in your area about it, but in most states they dont really say anything about them unless you give them a reason to stop you....like Speeding.
