Novitec - but they aren't cheap ... or you could simply tint them.

FF 16M Speciale
Lamborghini SV Roadster
Carrera GT GT3RS Viper ACR

I no of Novitec I didn't look to see if they sell them due to the crazy prices they charge.
I really don't want the cheap film either. But thank you for your help.

Where are you located? Someone may be able to steer you in the right direction.
My body shop is very good at tinting them.

Novitec lights are expensive because they're the only ones that actually cast the plastic with the tint in it. They are not painted, coated or filmed like everything else will be. They are a true OEM quality replacement. You will get what you pay for.

The next best option is to have the lights painted, which will be permanent. I have had lights done for my customers which looked fantastic.

Black paint is mixed into a clear coat and then applied over the light coat after coat until the preferred level of blacking occurs.

I got a quote today from Novitec via my Ferrari dealer in Zug,Switzerland CH5000 ($5,250)
which includes the rear fog light lenses and break light and side indicatores. They told me that in Switzetland the film is illegal!

Is it possible to buy them from you (mail order) and if so, please let me know the cost? I also spend half the month in London UK if you know anyone there who could paint them?
