You can do the same using lamin-x film for a fraction of the cost, it also comes in various shades. I've done mine :D

Maybe I'm missing the point, but whats been done to the reflectors. It seems they put the lights through a heat process to achieve the smooth smoked look :-\

They've just been tinted with tinting spray and masked off to create the lines..
They do look good.. You could do it yourself for around £10 for the spray n tape..

Wayne these do come up from time to time as I have seen them before so presumably they only do them when they manae to get hold od a cheap set or rear lights to convert. Not sure exactly what process they use but I think they totally smooth the lights out removing all the little cast writing atec on them before blackening them. I must admit they do look good coupled with a black centre boot panel on the ///M's so it looks like one piece runing across the back. Not sure they are worth what they are asking though just depends how much you want that look I suppose.
