Default All red tail lights

Hi guys, I've read that tint and spray paint are some of the best methods to make tail lights all red, anyone have pictures/info of the method you used? please and thanks!

Step 1: Take paint, throw in trash

Step 2: sell M3

Step 3: buy Honda


Or use Lamin-X

I used paint on my last 540/6.
I've been considering doing the same to my m3. I will probably use laminx this go around as its easily reversible.

I like all red taillights when a little spot can be left white for reverse. New bimmers come with them. I don't think it's ricey or even remotely like that. Do you man.

Don't worry OP, I think it looks cool.

Disclosure: That is not my car.^

I have a friend who used the spray on his e90 and it looks awesome. It's the same color red as the rest of the taillight, even after 2 years.

I have another friend who wrapped the white part of the taillight on his e90 with tint and it came out pink. Looks awful. He used the wrong color tint, and not only that but I'm sure that even if he did use the right color tint it'd fade after 2 years and probably look pink anyway.
