What up B5rs,
I recently bought a 01 B5 A4 1.8tqm and am in love with it. I dont have any pictures right now but its the (weird at first but AWESOME after a while) metallic melange color. Iv got some plans for the exterior that might include some lightly smoked head and tail lights. So post em up if you got em please!
anywho, thanks

i did mine with three coats of night shades and then clear coated over it.. looks MUCH better with the clear coat on.. that way it is not a dull color..

I have smoked tails, had them done when I got my tints done, and I love the way it looks. On a silver car btw. I would go for it. And for me, since it's a film, I can always take them off.

Nite shades spray tint. DIY stands for "Do it yourself"

i used Pactra racing finish..transparent black its a 3 oz can and it goes on perfectly and a coat of clearcoat...VHT is good stuff but who wants to pay 12 bucks for 20 ounces of paint when your not even gunna use a quarter of the can.
