Smoked out headlights/taillights?

Was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on what is the best way to go for a smoked out look?
I have an 08 black mustang gt. I've looked online and see they have smoked tint covers and then the smoked headlights/taillights to replace the current ones. Which is best in terms of styling and visibility?

Depends on your price range ... About how much you willing to spend?

Hmm well lets say on a budget price... However if it's worth it to spend more, I can save and wait to do it later on.

Dark smoked headlights can be around 150-250
Or you can pay around 45 for covers that give it a complete black out look and when you drive at night you can just pop the covers off if your lights are not bright enough

Right it's just that I've read that about the covers... Maybe I can get super or extra bright bulbs to help

As far as I know their stuff is all film. I have not used it, but know of the brand. They mainly do the clear bras.
