Default questions about tail lights and head lights

I have an 06' black wrx. There are two things im not very fond of on this car, the tail lights and the headlights. The headlights dont bother me as much as the tail lights but they still do.
Well anyway, I dont really have a massive amount of money to spend on 04 tail lights because I am a college student, so I was thinking about tinting the tail lights. So if someone could send me pictures of their tail lights that they had smoked or tinted would be awsome.

The next thing is the head lights. I dont really care for tinted the head lights and i dont like all of the silver surrounding the bulbs. I have read about a couple of people on here that painted all of the silver black. If someone has done this can you post some pictures that are pretty close up because i am a little nervous about painting them myself and i want it to look good.

One other question, i have been trying to find a STI hood scoop but i am finding it hard to get a sense of what it will look like on my wrx. So if anyone has any pictures of an STI hood scoop on their wrx can you please post them. Last question, will an 04/05' STI hood scoop fit my 06'? I just like how the STI hood scoop is taller and hangs over more.

Thanx to anyone who can post pictures and comments for me, im new and ready to learn a lot about my car.

find someone in your area that with an 04/05 that wants to trade tail lights.

Paint the headlights.

Problem solved.

i think the 06 sti has the same scoop as the wrx and the 05/04 scoop doesnt fit.

also, it would be nice to see close ups of painted headlights with a silver ring around the projector and one without.

04/05 tails are plug and play, so no problem whatsoever.
