I'm thinking about tinting my Pearl 98 A4 tail lights and windows but wanted to see if anyone has pictures of what they've done. Also, is it better to get film or paint for the lights?

I would tint the taillights in a very light color. Just enough to make the reverse lamp gray instead of white.

Paint on the tails. And Either Llumar or 3m for the windows. Depends on wheel color, and darkness of window tint to decide on taillight tint.

I order a roll of film for tinting the tail lights and cut it myself...this is a light smoke...the only thing I didn't tint was the reverse light looks cleaner!

This looks very clean! I love the look. To cut the film right, did you take out the lights?

colombian. its not safe to be showing you license plates anywhere dude. people want to steal b5's. they search forum and stuff to find cars. there was a car in NY i believe that got stolen from some guy on here. thiefs confessed they were stalkin b5's from audizine.

I know its not white, but i have 30% tints, and i used the spray for my lights (from auto zone like $6). Obviouslly it doesnt look as good as profesional tint film, but it still looks pretty fresh i think. but be careful with the spray! u really have to spray and let it dry and spray and let it dry. Because when its when, it doesnt look dark so i kept spraying it and when they dried they were black and like no light was shining through and got 2 tickets. I had to use brake cleaner to get it off and re-do it and as you can see, its not to dark and not to light.
