    So I'm thinking of tinting the tail lights on my '07 Civic.

    It's obviously purely cosmetic and the only thing that's gonna be done to the shitvic. I've seen it on a few of them and I kinda like it so I've been thinking of doing it.

    BTW, it's Taffeta White
    .

    What do ya'll think, yay or nay?

    leave 'em alone. if it is going to be the only thing you do it might affect sellability. if i saw painted lights, i wouldn't think "bone stock".

    you will have a better sales audience. but if you have an extra set, then i would want to see pictures first.

    its you civic, if you think it will look bad ass then go for it ...

    Maybe get another set so you can put stock ones on if needed.

    Yea, I would definitely buy another set so it could go back to stock, but let me see if I can dig up some pictures of stock and tinted on the Taffeta White.

    i like stock. i would like to have one with some bronze circuit 8's or something. then again, i like the looks of a new car. maybe because i've never had one though. ;)

    Trust me, it's a headache if you don't pay for it outright. I still owe enough on this bad boy and I'm already getting tired of it.

    i have had one car loan in my life. it wasn't too bad because it wasn't too much. i'm just sick of driving 15 year old cars. shit gets annoying. i hate sitting in my gf's '08 G37 then going back into an integra or my nissan.

    Personally I really like the way the stockers look on that Si in that picture. They just look so bright, clean, clear and shiny.

    i also think it might be a liability. if you get rear-ended, they might say they couldn't see your light. nay for insurance reasons.

    but i thought no matter what, if you rear end someone unless they backed into you ...


    it was your fault.

    that's true too, but if I have improper safety devices, I'd become at fault.
