Exactly how tinted are PDLS+ lights as hard to tell from pictures?

Basically, a bit of chrome in the standard non "tinted" lights is black. I conclude with running lights on when the car is moving has no visible effect and not worth the money over non-tinted. unlike some, I think the normal PDLS plus worth the extra over plain PDLS.

OK. Seems that if you spec the + their tinted but you do get the "+" benefits 👍

The extra bit of black is nowhere near worth the cost imo, I didn't get to see either before I specced mine but thankfully the sales guy said not to bother. When we picked the car up I was shocked at how little chrome there is in there anyway.

Ours has it and I notice it but it is subtle and as somebody has said, you wouldn’t see it with lights on

I wanted it on the 911, being white, but wasn’t available at the time of order.

Do the + benefits make any significant difference?
