ya i think thats prob the best way to do it. i work at a bmw dealership and on some of the ones ive seen, they hit the brakes and they shine just as bright with the smoked tails than with the stock ones. Seems like the stick on crap makes it dull and blurry.

I have friends that paint at a bodyshop here where I live. You can find you a good paint and body man for the work. The problem is getting the clear coat the right tint. It took them a few tries to mix it right, but now they've got it spot on.
