I will probably do like 2 or 1 coats, because i dont want them too dark, i want a dark look, but not black look and i will use the clear coat. I just really need to get it first.. I'll probably wait until i get my liscence to do all this "illegal" stuff, like smoking the tails

Its actually not illegal to have tinted tail lights. As long as you can see the from like 100 feet or something like that then you can pass.

No hid are the way to go I tried every way. It's not worth the money to get brighter bulbs or projector headlights. Hid are brightest and easy to install.

Re: Good list? anything worth or not worth getting?

Looking to get bumper inserts today, is it worth getting chrome or stainless steel over vinyl?

Go for the metal one's! Stainless steel. That look sick in the bumper. It's worth it.
