No, it is lamin-x film over it... PITA to stretch over with heatgun in cold weather, but i didnt expect it to turn out as well as it did. I didn't want to jump into something permanent b/c i didn't know if I would like the look.

Yes, they come in 2 or 3 different shades. I have the darkest. www.lamin-x.com will probably answer most of your questions.
I'm not sure if regular tinting will withstand the weather and/or other environmantal factors, there's probably a reason they put it on the inside of the car. Lamin-x film is much thicker than regular tint film.

Thanks for the link. I love the rear lights, althought I will probably go lighter. Did you do the fronts also. I have done all my cars and know that I have saved a bunch in replacement fees. My wife has a 2002RS that took a major hit to the foglight. It is cracked but still solid and working!

Nah I didnt do the fronts YET...my suby doesnt even have foglights :-[ ....but it would probably be a good idea to put some on in the future to protect the lights.

Whoa...

I just bought my dark tails from laminx, as well as the headlight/fog protectors (in clear).
That actually makes me like the chrome strip.
