Yea Id definately smoke em out. I think its a cleaner look than going red. Plus it will break up your trunk a little bit more than just being all blinding red. Looks good tho. I do like the red look and possibly with some white wheels would look sick!

Swap with an 05, they are more red than the 06-07s, seen a red 06 with them. Was pretty sharp.

Its not the best picture but you can buy my tail lights for $100. I painted the housings black, and i dont like how it turned out at all... I have a set of 04/05 tail lights on the way now. Send me a PM if you dont want to hack up your lights and just want a spare set.
