I couldn't help but notice, do you have red rear turn signals as opposed to the amber lights or is it just the angle/lighting?

Ya I got the red vinyl film from rvinyl and applied them myself. I think it looks much better. Click on the link under my signature for pics of the before and after.

ceramic is a type of tint material. johnson is a type of tint brand. if you want good performance then get ceramic. if you want just looks then get whatever.

I'm getting Llumar 35% tint all around this tuesday for $199 + taxes. Anything I should know before I go in? That place said they had experience with about 4 IS in the past 2 weeks. Its going to be computer cut!
