Haven't the slightest clue. Maybe someone else can help you. Go on goolge and type in "window tint (then your city)" and wah-lah... something should come up. Then give them a call and see if they do headlight and tail light tinting.

Here's a tip... put your location and your car in your profile

I can see your car from your name, but not everyone looks there.

How old are you Mr. Yellow?

I'll be sitting at my desk
With a gun in my hand, wearing a bulletproof vest singing
"My, my, my, how the time does fly, when you know you're going to die
By the end of the night."

buy a few cans of vht nightshafes and some clear coat some sandpaper in the appropriate grits... get a spare set of tail lights from a junk yard and practice on those until you can get them right.... then do your tails once the right way and you will be happy

+1 to getting some junkyard tails to practice on first. Practice makes perfect. And you can see how many layers = how dark.

Well you certainly won't be the first yellow coupe with tinted tail lights. If that's what you're looking for, then do spinners. lol... not the fake ones, I know some people around me who got you beat on those as well.

This is probably your first car, and it's great that you're excited and want to make it nice and all. A few things...

Go too far, it'll be rice (*cough, 4" exhaust, cough* ). Worse, you can hurt performance and/or do mechanical damage. It pays to educate yourself first on the particular car.

You've taken a good first step by finding this forum; and by asking questions before doing things. I'd advise just reading for a few weeks before doing anything. Keep an eye on the S-series General and Technical forums as well.

Next, have you taken care of maintenance items? It really sucks when you've blown your budget on bling... and you develop a mechanical problem.

Changed the ECTS & connector? Fluid changes up to date? Replaced the shifter bushing? How are your brake pads? Spark plugs, wires? Use hte search feature and find the preventative maintenance and "what to do when you buy a new car" threads.

When the basics are taken care of, then go to town on the looks. Good luck with the car

In all honesty (sorry to hurt feelings to anyone here), these cars are not fast. They won't be fast unless you have money. I would recommend that you make it look nice with minor modification and keep your money for a car with more potential.

The only performance modifications I would make is to replace a broken part. Say your exhaust had a hole in it, then I would buy a cat back. Reason being, then you have a cause for replacing the parts. On top of that, aftermarket parts (even performance) tend to be cheaper than OEM. Most of the time they're a lot cheaper than OEM.

That is just my 2 cents.

I agree with Chaos; save your money for the "rainy day", and worry about taking care of your car. These particular cars take a little bit of automotive knowledge to make them go fast.

These cars are not Newbie tuners, especially if you are looking for something with great potential.
