Projectors. :) How does the price range even compare? Would love to see them done and how they're done or get them done. Enjoy whichever you decide. :)

Def the tint. It's easy and gives a better look to the car.

Get a vinyl sticker for the whole roof to make it look either two tone or CF. That would be legal and rad.

DePR84 said it. How does that even compare? Tints are like 150$ max, projectors in a DIY project could be like 500$ and a shit load of work to make it look decent. I think tints are a very easy way to make the car look nicer and their illegal here too but cops don't bother me and I have dark tints. Easier, hassle-free, a lot cheaper=tints. Other then that I'd say maybe a spoiler?

No spoiler for me.
if tint, then i'll be gettin 20%, it will run me about 110$ (with a lifetime warranty)

if projectors, me and my buddy did it before, it will run me around 180-200. (i already have the HIDs, projectors are 120, shroud is another 40, and some painting and tools will take up the rest

Yea I have 20% and it was the same exact thing, $110 guaranteed for life. It's crazy how making your windows dark makes such a difference in the overall look of the car. The projector thing sounds interesting. Maybe do that to be a little different and it's a DIY, not someone else doing it so that's always fun.

On my jeep I went limo for the back and 30 up front which looked pretty good but it also had a factory reflective coating on the back windows so it was impossible to see in from the outside. On my koup I got 30 all around and I think it looms better because it's even. But that's just my opinion.

The tint makes a huge difference in look of the car and when you are driving on those really bright days it makes it easier to see out. I personally think tint would be a no-brainer.

I thought seeing out with 5% was flippin horrible. I always worried I was gonna run someone over backing outta a parking space at night.

I vote projectors 'cause wouldn't you be the first?
