If your worried about visibility on headlights that are tinted, just buy the smoked headlights off AM, yes it's more expensive but looks extremely great, ill send some pics if interested

From what I have heard with the spray on tint, it's basically like your windows, more you put on, less light can get out, this could be wrong, that just what my local auto people have said, I got smoked because they are slightly different if that is how this tint works, ill Have to ask my buddy, but he did this with his lights on a Honda, and it seemed like more light was bouncing back into the headlight unit than out onto the road, he ended up getting new lights instead, Like I said, I could be talking about something completely different though, if so I am sorry
