cause some people prefer that. not everyone, but since there is not a lot available for tails in the Tribeca, people are looking for change or options. Nobody said it was better just an option thats all.

We are also looking at making smoked tails for the Tribeca as well.

Can you post the unchopped pic next to it?


RB... can you get a picture of a B9 at night in reverse with the tints? I'm liking these tints... Just have to put a few things to rest before I pull the trigger.

We are going to the dealer tomorrow to take some photos on some B9's and see about smoking the tails. Getting a shot at night is going to be tough. This is what I can tell you though. The red will make the reverse light red and not white anymore. If you are like me and the windows are so dark the reverse lights dont do any good then you will be fine with it.

If you use your reverse lights all the time and NEED them then this is not for you. Check back after the weekend to see more photos and hopefully some smoked tails with luck.

I don't need the light to see. I'm more worried about other driver's recognizing that i'm backing up. I left the rears factory and did the fronts @ 20%. What color Becky will you be using to take pics? I request a Diamond Gray if their is the ability to do so. Thanks!

Here are the photos that we took this morning. White was there and easy to get to. We have to go back and test fit the smoked tails so I will see if we can find a gray one around there, k?

Just what we were thinking as well. This is 20% smoked which blocks out 17% of the light output.

Sorry that we didnt get any of the dark smoked. To be honest very rarely does someone want to go that dark. It will block out a third of the light output from the tails and that is just too much for a lot of people. the 20% smoked gives you the idea and the concept. If someone wants 35%, just remember it is really dark.
