Anyone have these headlights?

I know, I know..

I looked through about 40 Headlight replacement threads but couldn't find any info about these LINK

I want a "black" look of the headlights but know the housings with a black reflector are going to destroy light output (Like THESE). I'm not going to use HID's as I would want a proper projector housing to run them. I'm planning on using a simple halogen bulb as "white" as I can get it (NO blue, like 4300-5000)

Does anyone have the housings I listed? My line of thinking is if they're glass lenses and sealed well, they're worth the $50 with bulbs...

I know a lot of people run Delta/Hella/etc but I want something that looks a little aftermarket.. If I had the money I'd get a set of the True HID's but don't have $400+...


Thanks!

I've seen those black headlights in person and they really do suck. Would have to run fogs to see anything.

Something I've been curious about and haven't seen it done yet. I'd like to see some OEM headlights hit with a light coat of spray tint. It might darken them just enough to get that look without killing light output. I've done tailights/turn signals and love the stuff.

Might want to contact daniel stern. He made a set of fog lights yellow tinted with krylon paint.

I have some VHT nite shades spray.. That would look good but Im afraid it would kill output also..

Could start with a light shot. And if it does kill the output, could always remove it.
