    I think the murdered out look is cool "different". On the other hand the car could use alittle contrast. Is it possible to tint the clear lense on the headlight and leave a circle in the center like some headlights that I see or would it melt. Would u be able to get me a measurement of the opening in the rear of the bezel where the hid goes. Also could I get the outside diameter of the hid assy. I'm looking for the measurements of the air gap around the hid bulb to the bezel? Any help would be great thanks.

    My "vote" is to leave them this way. They look great, much (!) better than that blacked out former look, IMO.

    I like them this way as well. As Stella said, the car could use some contrast...

    As you can see in the 1st pic.. That's the bezel (on the left) that is sealed to the headlight housing and glued to the Lens(top lens). The lens on the right has the bezel glued on. Ok.. I'm sorry.. I don't know why my pics get uploaded upside down or sideways

    thanks for the pics micropimp. My issue is the lens is lifting. I am tring to figure out how to get it back on properly. Are you able to tell what kind of adheasive was holding your lens on? Why are you saying that you would highly reccomend that i do not remove the lens? thanks CC Clark mentioned that he used silicon and vacuum pump to get the lens to stick on the bezel without bubbles. I was hoping for a how to you tube.

    You must own a Iphone, because the pictures are upside down or side ways. LOL. I have the same problem when posting here. A friend of mine said it's because I'm a left hander and I take pics with the Iphone in the left hand with the clicker on top.
