I'm wondering if I should install the overlays myself. I don't have vinyl experience but the parts I'm getting will only be on the flat portions of the tail lights. Hmm

I'm shopping for overlays for my 2013 Hatch.
There are a lot of options for tail light overlays and I'm trying to figure out the price discrepancies. Ignoring the cheap Ebay ones, a few quality options that get universally good reviews are: JDM, Bluebatmobile and Premium Auto Styling. Prices go from around $30 shipped for JDM on Ebay for the style I want to a few bucks shy of $50 shipped for Bluebat 7-year vinyl overlays. JDM and Premium do not advertise the grade of vinyl they use on their websites, but I'm sure I could find this out if I emailed them.

While I'm certainly not opposed to paying more for quality, I am also not someone who throws my money around thoughtlessly because everyone else says X-vendor is a really nice guy. All of the reviews of those other vendors are just as stellar, and in photos the end result looks the same.

What sets Bluebat overlays apart from the competition to justify paying 40+% more? Not trolling - just trying to make an educated decision so I can feel good justifying spending more, or saving $20 for an equivalent product.

I've been doing overlays since 2000. If u look at all my trader ratings from all the forums I post on, and there are many', i always get hi marks. Customer satisfaction is very important to me, and i always do my best to make the customer happy. I get orders from people that origionally ordered on ebay, and ended up not being happy with the product or customer service.

In the end its your decision to make. Im not here to sway you one way or another, just stating the facts . Ive sold several hundred hatch overlays to date!

Apart from all that, here is something I've noticed. Blue bat redout overlays tend to be a deeper red than the ones I've seen from eBay etc which comes down to personal preference.

Got my bluebat overlays and will get them installed on Tuesday. Will post pics! (It is going to be a bit different from the normal style, so haters start your engines!!!)

Hey [email protected], here are the overlays I got from Lamin-X. I like them and they've been decent but the installer never got them installed cleanly. I'm also considering changing to the red overlays with gray centers. Do you have any installers in the Chattanooga, TN area? Thanks!

Hey [email protected], this is a pic of my tails with the Lamin-X overlays. I like the looks but my installer didn't do the cleanest job. I am also considering changing to the red overlays with charcoal centers. Do you have any installers in the Chattanooga, TN area? Thanks!

I usually specify a separate price in the pic for tbl, some pics dont have it, but the description will usually say Taillight Overlay and or third brakelight overlay.
