When I sprayed them I was worried that I might have gone too dark. But surprisingly even the just the park lights are plenty visible.

It looks good man.

Just don't overdo it.

You're probably at the limit of black-to-gray ratio lol

So you're following our advice and putting a MS in first, right? Otherwise all the newbs won't do it either.

I liked the old car better...but I like my green car more with the lights from it. Why have you denied glory to the all-red tail lights?

I actually like this car much much more, even with almost 200 whp less. The black tails match the car better.

not a fan of the tails THAT dark... a lighter tint would have been nice.

NA was better.

Wait until your boosted again and troubleshooting issues again and it will be the same love as the NA haha

They really aren't as dark as they appear in the pics

The NA was old and tired

Boosting is easy, tuning is easy.
