Looks very nice, but on my black car, I would really be concerned somebody might nail me at a dark intersection.

I think they look sharp, but unfortunately illegal in OR.

Yeah Stephen I got them from the guy down south "Creative...." forgot the second part of their name. Though hideously over priced I have had them for aboUT 4 months. I like them and the brake lights punch thrun just fine during the day ...even more so at night. I pull themy off from time to time to clean behind theme after a few exposures to rain it can get a little messyou behind them for my tastes.
The logic behind this was the only solution to have tinted lenses and reverse them if there ever was an issue.. get yourself a roll of clear VHB tape..thin kind if you are considering them...

I have the gscreations covers and those look identical at a quarter the price. If you get them, I'd be curious to hear about fit, finish and quality. I like my gscreations covers.

I've never understood the idea behind blacking out tail lights. Many times I've wished I had a beater truck with an i-beam for a front bumper so I could out and "hunt" for blacked out tail lights. Plow into them and then sue for altering a critical safety feature of their car.

I'm curios to see what they look like cause $70 is cheap. There's no way I would buy the gscreation ones there to expensive. I would buy z06 taillights before that. I just got the flat design acrylic ones really cheap I'm gonna install to see if I like them

I've seen the flat ones and don't think they look very good. But these look just like the GScreation ones but for so much cheaper. $70 seems like a fair price for what they are. Keep us posted if you decide to go this route. I may as well.

Well I got the flat one piece which covers the whole taillight and also the section ones. I personally like the sections. I will keep you updated if I ever do. They must be fairly new cause I have never seen them or listed anywhere besides carid.

Wow! Thats a great price! I too bought the GSC's and they look really sharp! Im curious to know how these look and the quality of the lens. I have to admit, although the GSC's are WAY over priced, they are of excellent quality!

Oh and the tail light cover haters...You can see the light clearly through the lens. Its not like you black out the light completely for crying out loud. I tell you, there are more men on this forum that **** sitting down than ever before!

Go for it OP! Tell us how they turn out man!

I actually like them, definitely more tasteful than the "clear" Z06 style lights that everyone seems to be raving out.

That being said, I like my Red "OEM" lights more so until I get bored of that, I'll just keep it that way.
