..And then you proceed to give your opinion



Also I wasn't aware it was illegal to link pictures of what we're talking about...


No it wasnt directed at anyone in particular. Im not interested in starting battles here. I want everyone to give their opinions without reservation. That includes pictures of what they like to give a visual cue. My point was that there is a difference between saying "i think this looks nice" and "i think your choice looks cheap". Thats all im getting at.

I think all the cars on here look great, but im a bit of an e46 m3 fanboy. Outside of the really abused cars, i enjoy seeing everyones particular vision of the car.

I don't see the difference between saying one looks nice and the other looks cheap but okay. It's just an opinion. I won't get hurt if you say my car looks like $hit haha.

Anyway, to each his own! Opinions are like a$$holes...

Those eagle eye smoked tails don't look half bad. Wonder if the quality is any good though....

Put me in the smoked camp. I think with the black headlight surrounds, a smoked crystal corner light makes it look like 1 cohesive headlight rather than 2 separate parts. When I still had original clear lenses, people would asks me if I added them myself because they looked out of place.

I also think it requires de-chroming the car to some extent. I went and painted my gills and inner grills in black to pull it back. I also tinted my windows. LSB really doesn't need any help being bright, in fact I think it needs some more dark elements to break it up a little bit. I like the result personally. To make it even more specific, I do Not like any other smoked lights on this car. I think the side markers and taillights should stay clear or amber.

I'm 99 percent sure thats whats on my car. They leak water into them, cause build out errors, don't flash synchronized and the weather stripping is cracked and leaks water into the trunk which has led to a bit of rust. I would never entertain anything but OEM. I think the price difference is only a couple hundred bucks. They do look nice though.
