Sort of related, one of my nissan pathfinder friends installed aftermarket hids and because of the higher position it was blinding other drivers and he had way more light than needed. He used regular 20 percent window tint on the headlight and it killed the glare and gave him a decent light output and it looked bad *** in daylight. I probably wouldnt do this over regular halogens

I bought the smoked headlights from raxiom. And they are dark. Out here we don't have road lights and I def notice a difference. It's going to take getting used to.

for newer stangs you can buy headlight tint thats thicker and protects the lights and can be pealed off etc. It does hurt your vision at night so a set of HID"s might help that but I would run a HID projection housing else you can blind people.... but maybe not so bad if behind a good dark tint

Are tinted head lights illegal? Doesn't it obstruct head light

It varies from state to state!.. I know some places you can't have them on at all!.. Others you can just have them on for "Show purposes" only!.. And yet some states you can have them on only during the day time and have to take them off at night!.. Personally I think they look cool on some cars!.. But as far as how much they affect light output varies from the type of tint/cover and the type of light itself!...
