99-04 blacked out mustang tail lights?

Hey, I have been looking in to getting some blacked out tail lights for awhile now for my 00 gt. I have been debating between black and a few other aftermarket lights. What do you think? Here is an auction I found on the black ones. Thanks for the help

I don't know anything about those specific lights, but before dropping coinage on them I would make VERY sure that your local Deputy Dawg isn't going to hassle you for blacked out lights. Those look pretty dark. You might want to consider a lighter tint.

As an alternative, think about the 3m smoked taillight decals. If you get pulled over for blacked out taillight assemblies, Deputy Dawg can tow your car -- but if you have the 3M smoked tailight decal types, you can peel 'em off and go. ('course you'll be ripping of $70 in decals, but at least neither you or your car will be in jail.....)

Those are nice but pricey. I've got the overlays on mine. I was pulled over a few weeks ago. Thought perhaps because of the tailights but the trooper said it was because of the cover on my tags (illegal in MD). I told him I knew that since I am retired MD police officer. He made no mention of the lights. They are not completely black as you can see. Durng bright sun you can see the bulbs lighting up very well, well enough to keep you out of trouble anyway as far as I'm concerned. But as stated previously you can peel them right off if need be. They are nice and thick and you'd be hard pressed to see that they are overlays. Worth the money IMO.

I had them on my old stang. They were pretty dark, but you could still see my brake light and turning signal through them quite well. They are only illegal here in PA at night time.
I only have a pic of the black outs on the front of my car.
