Not digging the VHT pic you have (I know it's photoshop), but I've seen a member on here that had it done (maybe Dusten?) and it looked really good.

I was bored, so I went ahead and re-shopped them for you. No offense meant.

I was actually planning on tinting the turnsignals on mine. Was going to get the one piece european tails and take them apart to black out the reflector.

(I was planning on LEDs too.. but that is a different story)

I had done that to my now dead Tiburon.. was a nice and subtle look

I personally would prefer to smoke the whole tail light, not just the turn signal portion (clear part).

i am going with clears for my car. i think clears all around would really go well with my Alpine white car. but i really like those smoked tail lights on ebay. those would look great on a black ti. but i dont know about Apline white
