You are asking for trouble, and it is against the law.

IMHO, DUMBEST mod anyone can do for any car.

I would rather you get a Hood Scoop!

If you want to do it right...

Take the tail lights off, bake them, and spray tint the inside of the lens. This way the cops/inspection station cant noticable see the tint film, or chips/bubbles from spraying the lens on the outside. It looks more proffesional, like it came from the factory like that. When I say this I mean only tinted enough to give a sleek look but not blacking them out. If you just black them out then it doesnt matter how you do it, your prolly gonna get hassled for it.

I spray tinted mine, but I have a 7.5 gen. I spray tinted around the break and reverse light, and only lightly tinted over the blinkers. Just taped off the lights that I wanted to show, and taped off the rest of the car. I sprayed the outside of the lens fairly dark, then I went over it with a buffer and rubbing compound. The buffer will remove the top layer of tint and lighten the color up a bit. But it will be smooth and shiny just like your paint. Looks fairly professional if I do say so myself.

something to ponder...

If you get rear ended at night, YOU could be on the hook for all the bills, because of your tinted lights.

Large risk, cause you think it makes you look cool.

Good point. Another thing to consider is not to hang anything in your rearview mirror. Was told by an accident scene investigator that having an object hanging on your rearview mirror could put you responsible for the accident and make the insurance company not pay for any damage.
