Chrome or smoked headlights?

Didn't know where to put this so I just put it in the detailing section.

I have a 2002 GT. Green, smoked taillights...tailights...the back lights are smoked, my black rims will be coming in between the 6th and 12th, and idk if it would look better with chrome or smoked headlights..

My stock ones are smokey looking and after 3 hours of trying to clean them, they still look pretty bad. So I figured might as well get new ones.

But yea, I was just wondering what yall would think..

welcome, post up some pics of your car so we can get an idea ourselves, I personally like the smoked idea since you've already got other things smoked on there & have black rims coming

I really like the OE black housing headlights posted above. They look really clean and project light better than the smoked lenses. IMO, with a daily driver the OE black housings are superior!

Thanks for the help and your opinions! I decided to go with the Dark Smoked Headlights instead of the OEs because they were darker...I think. I don't drive at night too much so visibility shouldn't be a problem and incase it is I also got some silverstars for that. I appreciate it guys.

Still not a bad choice! I love the look of the smoked headlights too, it's just not my first choice. But hey, that's the best part about any modded Mustang. They're customized to the owners personal preference!

They r awsome at night, they put off a blueish purpleish hue and when they shine on certain road signs its shines like a pink hue.
