That post needs more info. I cant read minds (though i wish i could) so I have no idea whether your car is a coupe, sedan or convertible.

Not only that, but your question is completely personal opinion, and your choices aren't related to each other.

But here is how you tint tail lights: Clicky

I'd say tint the stocks, they fit perfectly and will look nicer. Other choice is some black altezzas http://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-2008-PO...item45fdab85d9

Tinted tail lights look great but its not worth the safety issues associated with them IMHO.


MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

I did mine light enough that it gets rid of the bright red but still allows most if the light.
