NO TINT ON HEADLIGHTS! That darker appearance is given from having the assembly blacked out, similar to how the stock OEM Black line Tails appear. They appear to be tinted but really the housing/ assembly is black instead of white giving an overall darker appearance. Stock, our assemblies are a very light grey/ gunmetal. Once I noticed how grey/ light in color the inside of our headlights are, I HAD to do something about it... My wheels are the stock finish and will stay that way. I am not blacking out my car by any means, but I believe in a clean/ and uniform looking vehicle. No lights/ lens will see tint on my car, it just looks too "tuner" IMO. I will admit, I used smoked tint on my reverse strips until the Black lines were available but other than that, only the main windows excluding the windshield are tinted. 15% around.
