Anyone interested in swapping head/tail lights I just bought a new to me 2012 Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder and the lights have been clear coat tinted. I am looking for a pair that have not been. My corner markers are tinted as well so if you are looking for those tinted I would trade those out.

It actually doesn't look bad at all (though I disagree with tinting headlights for safety's sake, as a rule), I have to say, it's pretty nice! I have an preLP black/black Spyder and only tinted the side markers, but I used a film vs. spray so it can be easily undone.

Congrats on the purchase!

Thanks! The look is growing on me, the only problem is they headlights are very dim at night. I will probably just have them sanded/polished. Any recommendations on this?

Yes, you can actually do that. I've had to sand then polish hazed lenses... turned out really well. I think I did 1500-2000 grit (which would be more than enough to take off the layer of tint). Then a nice compound, then polish, then ceramic wax for good measure.

Also, while you're at it, you might want to take care of the oxidation on the upper grill below the rear tail lights. I think there's another thread here on that. The LP version of that grill had a tendency to whiten.
