Slowly my car has turned white and black...
The tails don't look bad, but I'm wondering
What they look like tinted on a white diamond cts.
I would want them glossy not flat black.
Pics please.
Thanks.

in my opinion you need to tint your tails, cause it looks a little funny to me now...i am not hating, cause i do like what you have done to your ride, but i just believe you still could do a few more things to make it look a little better

Stock...well that didn't happen..lol.

The reason I thought of tinting them is cuz I
Sent my buddy a pic of it and he said "I like
What you have don't with the white, black and
RED"
That got me thinkin...pics so I can decide would
Help. I know someone on here has got to have a

Tru...my 18's looked great, but there is something about 20's...22's are overboard but 20's...yeah the right ones set it off right...

About the original post...no. I have a white diamond Caddy no tinted tails...I do want eyelids though. Another post I saw this weekend was interesting. Someone with a black CTS had eyelids that ran down the headlight even with the edge of the hood. I thought that was unique and way more aggressive. I can't find the post though!

i think the right 22s set it off also...i love my 20s and it will be hard for me to change, i even tried 22s and didnt like it at one point in time, but i have seen a few on here that look really nice...i paticulary like the Vogue CV-7s in 22s and think they look great

Yeah, that would be them! Saw em on a black CTS though, but the exact same ones. Look tight. So where can I get these? Is it just vinyl wrap? Sorry, i just know electronics...lol

This is EXACTLY what I want my tail lights to look like!!

Are the overlays you used pretty simple? Look terrible? I really don't want to mess with VHT spray, cuz that requires way too much work. -_-
