Besides Hella Smoked taillights, what other brands of smoked aftermarket taillights are there? Recently I snagged these smoked taillights from ebay. Can somebody identify the brand for me? Thanks
Btw I'll post pics once I get them installed

I have hella's on mine, but those look to be someone's own taillight tint work. I think hella's are a bit lighter and don't have orange showing like that.

Thanks for all your responses. Upon closer inspection it turns out they are Euro taillights that were tinted pretty dark. Anyways do you think they're too dark for the Benz? Plus I wonder how much the cops would bother me over those. I live in one of those areas where the cops just sit on the side of the road looking for reasons to give you a ticket

theres red tint spray, and tint film. also if you know someone whose a automotive painter, you can mix red paint with alot of clear thinning out the paint making it appear transparent. ie home made tint spray..

I was thinking to try the Red Tint spray that is sold on Ebay, but I am afraid that the finish product won't be that good since i never did it before.
Even the Grille that I painted black before started to chip.

Hella Smoked tails are sweet. Startec ones seem alright.
