Tinted tailights paint or spray

I kind of like the stealth look of a black car with tinted tailights. some people think its tacky but a lot of high car modifiers are starting to do this trend and its a very clean thing IF done right. Anybody have expeirence with that. I hear there is a cheap spray you can basicaly spray on the inside of the light but the real way to do is to have it professionally painted. I do have a leased car so i dont know how well this woudl go over at the dealership... i would have to buy new lights or try and get the paint off?

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,
