tinting lights?

Is it possible to use that same tint stuff that you use to tint the taillights on headlights?

Like one coat so its not too dark and some brighter bulbs

Yes you can with light coats, I would also reccomend to some brighter bulbs or hids. But since you're headlights are hazy already I would reccomend buying new ones with the smoked housing and they look great.

Re: tinting lights?

i dont like how tinted lights work at night. i hated having mine done and got rid of them quickly...if you want a dark headlight get smoked lenses...either way make sure to look into some HIDs

i reccomend ddmtuning.com
