Dealer's discretion whether you'd have to restore them, if you do more than a light tint it seems likely they will make you comply. If you're just going to paint them anyway (and it goes on the *outside* of the lens) then buy another set, you might be able to find some cheap aftermarket things on fleabay, and paint them, preserving your originals to toss back before you turn it in. Then perhaps you can sell the ones you tint on the black market (bad pun but it fits, eh?).
jtbeche did a great DIY on spraying your own, it's in the W208 forum and is stickied in the W210 forum.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
