    Me neither but I try to embrace things I don't like, I didn't like black cars either.

    I don't really understand the point or desire to make it harder for someone to see you braking or to see you at night with your tail lights on. (I guess I'm just getting too old to be hip and cool like that any more.) Not to mention, the legality of it is always subject to debate. Altering a vehicles lighting equipment from OEM can easily make it fail DOT regulations and CFRs. In fact many after market lighting devices, and tints will say "for off-road use" or "exhibition use only" in minuscule print right on the box.

    I'm a fan of smoked tails but I won't even dream of tinting mine because of cops, or getting rear ended they can blame the tinted lights. They look good, but I feel like unsmoked looks cleaner, so many mustangs have smoked lights.

    I like new edge cars to have at least a light smoke going on, without it on a dark colored car it's just a big block of red. Atleast on 94-98 cars you can paint the bezels and leave the lights red and they don't stand out nearly as much. Just my opinion.

    I loved the tinted/smoked lights on my car, all depends on the look you want.

    Smoke them biitches! Looks more sinister.... If I scrolled through the law books before modding a car I'd be stock height and quietly bored to tears with cars!

    Pretty much exactly my feeling on it. I know for a fact it's illegal where I'm from. Well, that and the whole "murdered out" thing has never really been my taste.

    Usually it's accompanied by black everything else.
