Where to buy Black tailights

Looking for some guidance on where to get some good black/smoke tailights. I've seen a bunch on ebay but cant really tell what they look like on the X5. Any info or pics would be helpful. Thanks.

I just had the tail lights on both the X5M and my 3.0 X5 "balcked out".
The same person who did the clear bra work on my cars did it.

He used some window tint film that is somewhat thicker (easiest way I can explain it) and covered the white stripes where the backup lights and white reflectors are.

Now they're dark, not totaly blacked out but dark. I like it.
If I get a chance I'll post some pics of one of the X's.

Two things I'd lime to do but can't find.
One, darken the white turn signals on the side of the fenders on the 3.0.
The other is body color reflectors; the orange and red reflectors.

Anyone have any idea where to get either of those items?

Hi
I got some off ebay. Supplier was GT_Racer. They have LED brake lights. I think they look great with the Dark Grey Paint work and make the 2001 X5 look 10 years younger. I will try and post up some pics later.

I bought my LED tail lights in April 2010 from eBay also. The seller was gt_racers. They look great installed on my 2004 X5. The only problem is that they flicker when the lights are on and I'm not pressing the brakes.

I've been told: "you must disable the cold and hot bulb check to stop the lights from flickering."

I have not done that yet but I plan to ASAP.

You mean these? They're LEDs but you can use the smoked version:
