1. No
2. No. Yes.

Its not legal to spray your tailights with paint/tint/nightshade etc.

In my opinion it looks s**t anyway, i'd rather a brand new sparkling set of EF tailights over dull & blackened tinted ones

not legal in Qld or Vic. had a mate (in Vic) get a canary a few years back for dark tail lights when they were all the rage then.

from a personal point of veiw, i am not a real fan of the dark (or the bloody horrible Alterra ???) lights. the colour contrast of the factory lights against body colour looks better, although i am sure a few varying opinions will follow..............anyone :?: :?:

With regards to the rear wing, go see a few car yards till you spot a green Ef like yours without a wing and swap bootlids, i cant see them saying no :wink:
