yeah man, I got mine for 50 on ebay last year though. I liked them alot, they stick with double sided tape, i think the reason it came off is because someone must have leaned or scraped against it and loosed it a little bit

Tinted tails sure look cool, but I'd say leave 'em alone. Upgrade to '06+ if you like though.
Having been rear-ended once before, I'll never tint my taillights.
