How hard was it to install vinyl tint? I am thinking about having the lights painted by the bodyshop as it will last longer than the tint. I hear it only last 3-5 years max.
super easy, and I hate applying things like this.
even if it lasts five years I’ll spend the $80 again and redo them. Also it’s technically illegal here in Canada so painting is pretty much a terrible idea.

Car going to get ceramic coated on Monday. getting 35% tint on front windows and getting the rear lights and front side markers smoked. They are sending the lights off to body shop to get painted. Apparently the vinyl wraps on the lights last about 2-3 years tops.I'll post pics later in the week.
I did vinyl, my ‘15 STi has been vinyl tinted since day 1 and the DD will never see the sideways abuse the subie does, vinyl still looks like the day I applied it.

protip- buy luxe vinyl or equivalent, ebay and amazon tint is like dollar store tint.

Thanks but for me, since I am getting the car ceramic coated, i have elected to have them to a lightly smoked on the top brake light, the entire taillight and side markers. Essentially its clear coat with a couple of drops of black paint mixed in. The advantage for me is that they can ceramic coat over the clear coat so its easery to clean after the fact. No need to worry about making nicks in the vinyl when cleaning. I dont have a issue with getting the car inspected and the cops wont break your chops around hear as long as they arent blackout or tinting the headlights or windshield.

If I had to do the vinyal wrap I would have went with Luxe as they are a quality product. Also, they dont have a precut kit for brake light which for me, defeats trhe purposed as it wont match the smoked taillights.

yo that’s a killer deal, works out to $120ish CAD. The ones i got were $12/ pack of 4 so $60 CAD and free prime shipping so I pulled the trigger real fast on them lol

I think they should have came from the factory like this honestly the chrome ones def don’t do the wheels justice

For sure Id go the same route as you if our inspections weren’t so stupid and our cops so bored 😂

Luxe does actually make the third brake light pre cut, just gotta add it as a free add on when ordering 👍🏼

agreed on the ceramic coating, I do my own and i’m sure that’s likely what’s kept my subies vinyl so perfect so long

Yea tell me about it. The tailpipes should of came black as well. When I got my Audi s3 2016 I got the black optics package but I needed to black out my tails , all emblems, lugs and powdercoat rims. I mean how stupid is that. You sell a call with half black half chrome ?

yes! tailpipes are being done this weekend lol we really are on the same wavelength haha
It annoys me so bad when there’s little bits of chrome left for no real reason, like seriously, lug nuts and exhaust tips, would it have been so hard dodge? 🤨
