They would have to steal your lights. The tint sticks real good

Plasti dip. Sticks on like paint. Do very light coats from about 8 inch distance until ypu get desired darkness. Do them light every coat that way there dark during day and at night light still goes through them perfectly

Nope, just bulbs that are very slightly brighter than stock.

Yea I only occasionally drive at night, and when i do there are a ton of street lights so I didn't see the importance of HIDs.

It wasn't really that I did a bad job, there were just millions of little cracks in the headlights that I couldn't see until the VHT dried. So then when I started to remove it the cracks wouldn't go away. I just scrapped the headlights and bought the dark smoked ones.
