probably not the best idea. why dont you get some LED tail lights? they look better and dont cause accidents.

Tint them red. Problem solved lol

It's odd that so many people aren't fans of redding out tallights, not only is it completely legal, entirely more safe, but it just.. darn looks better than dimming the taillights.

I used vinyl, but i know on the gen2 it's an extremely difficult shape to do with vinyl, at which point for gen2 no matter what you do.. spray tint is really your only option.

^this

I swear I saw someone on mazda3quebec the other day who had opened their gen2s tail lights to do some cool mods. Maybe I dreamed it though. I'll see if I can find it later, if I remember.

Quebec will allow drivers to buy vanity license plates, beginning in September 2015.
Considering how they like to take peoples money at every opportunity, I'm surprised its taken this long.

I don't like redded out taillights because then there is no difference in color between the taillights and the turn signals and reverse lights, etc. It only works on some cars. The 1st gen base model sedans that had the red taillights looked terrible. It wasn't even red, it was more like dark pink.

Awesome plate. The OEM LED taillights are the best looking tails to have, they are just hard to find and at a good price haha
