I managed to receive my AMG tail lights after waiting for 2 weeks to arrive. Have it fixed and removed my current tail lights that comes with the standard tail lights fo the SLK 200. I realize that the only difference between the 2 tail lights is only the black layer that subsitutes the white layer of the standard tail lights. I may be wrong, just correct me, there is a layer of sticker that was stick across the on the black layer. Don't tell me it was the sticker that does the job cause it does not make sense to pay US$400 for this tail lights .

Surely this cannot be right! Is it only the white part on a non amg light that is darkened, does the red remain the same? I am about the order them but having second thoughts now, it costs almost US$600 in the UK. If it is simply a sticker behind the white bit surely we can easily replicate this. Does anyone have a pic of the sticker on the AMG lights?

You could have done the mod yourself for 5 bucks by buying a can of 'smoke' paint.

how do you smoke lights

What is teh best way to smoke lights?

I presume they will be sealed units so teh only option is to do something with teh external part of the light, as suggested to use smoke paint.

Using such a product, doesn't it begin to wear off after time?

I like the idea of smoking the tails but I'd want them to look and wear like AMG OEM not wanna be's - but nor do i think its worth £400!

If the units could be desembled and painted on the inside that would be my preference.
