Are those fully transparent or hazy? In other words, would you be able to tell theres a sticker over it? And are these cut for the entire light or for portions/sections? Can't tell from your website..

I have all red tails on my e46 sedan!

All you do is go to a Michaels or some craft store and buy transparent paint for stained glass. Get red obviously and spray the orange part on your tails, then clear coat them and your all done. Mine came out perfect, the color matches great and you cant even tell.

They are fully transparent, the gif image makes them look a little hazy. They are pre cut to fit over the entire light, not just a small section.

They are fully transparent and have a finish similar to clean stock lights when install properly. The gif image does not give a true appearance.

Here is a photo of the same product but yellow in color installed over the headlamps of our R8

Here u go

Because you saw it on an M3 you have to see it on a sedan before deciding if you would want them for your sedan.


This is actually not bad at all but....






...you just don't go FULL RETARD!




Still want to do it OP?

Did you get polishing compound and polish them? Polish is what makes the light look perfect. Yours look a little matte as stated so i think a polish is in dire need.

Post polish/ Pre polish
