DIY Smoking headlights, is it safe?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I came across a BMW with smoked headlights (In fact i've seen may cars these days with such lamps).

So i thought it would be a nice weekend project for my car as well, just to see how it looks.

But before I start wanted to know if its going to hamper the light output and reduce visibility during night times.

Yeah after I asked on the forum i kind of figured it out that it was not worth the pain...

Thank you for your advice.

About the headlamp upgrade, I had asked about it but not recently, probably a few months ago (at least).

And I went ahead with the phillips 90/110W amber lamps,

Its really helpful and I'm loving it..

Thanks for asking.

Most people tend to tint things a bit darker than the cop looks and sees your lights are smoked especially during daylight hours. Smoke headlights are a bad idea because they hinder the light output and you can be pulled over for anything that is potentially a hazard to yourself.
