Anywhere besides the powertrain forum. Try interior and exterior mods.

^^ See I have been told otherwise. Was advised to paint them as opposed to using a tint. Just to make sure you clear coat it after painting?

Paint them correctly and they will look good, you should be posting in interior/exterior though. I got the ones from hotsubaru.com and had issues putting them on. Getting a bit of bubbling now. I would recommend getting them professionally done no matter what route you go.

there's vht niteshades, spray on tint.

Check with your local laws, it's illegal for most and you can get ticketed for it in some.

I'm not going to try this one myself. I have some body work coming up and I just plan on having the shop do the tails at the same time. Will post pics as soon as it is done!

Theres a great DIY on how to paint with pics and it came out decently looking. I remember it involved plenty of sanding and it sounded like a pain.

The vinyl film cover kit i used was a bit hard with no tinting experience. The first one i did great and the install is like a 9.5 out of 10 on teh rear left. the second one i was being rushed by people and there are some large bubbles i had to pop and it made a slight line or run in the vinyl but its not too bad and im picky. probably a 7.5 out of 10 install on the rear right.

I say get the overlays just in case you change your mind down the road about them, you can still remove them.
