LoL some jealous people in here.

Tint them darker or black them out, totally your call. Personally since its a white car i think blacking it out gives it a much cleaner look (along with black trim)

Um,....shouldn't this be moved? How is blacking out your tail lights a "vs" thread?

There's another option regarding the taillights:

Just leave them stock, the way they were.

Every time I see the words "Blacked out"...in my head it is immediately replaced with "unimaginatively modified"

Yup black out is old and overused, plus why black out a feature of a car so then it doesn't show anything properly.

I say yes. Black them out. It looks GREAT on white and the fact that you have black stripes, I'm surprised that it's up for debate.

Oh man don't do that to me... WOW!!!


If I had a Summit White Camaro I'd black out the rear the front and put black full stripes on it. it looks awesome!!!

BTW you do mean the RS model not the SS right? Because the SS model lights are no darker than the LT or LS models, it's the RS package that tints the tails a little darker.
