    I just got some smoked bezel headlights from ebay, and they look good except for one has a different tint then the other... it has almost a redish hint to the smoked bezel...

    I may see about exchanging it, but I just hate waiting! :D
    anyone else have problems like this?

    Tell me if you can see which one is lighter smoked...
    If you can tell the difference do you think its a big deal? Should I try to get another one that matches?
    I just dont want to deal with shipping and then if I get a new one, what if its not a match either...
    Let me know what you guys think!
    Thanks!

    I wouldn't say it's very noticeable by the picture anyway. But throwing my guess out there...drivers side is tinted slightly more?

    ^^ Your wrong man! the driver side is the lighter tint one, passenger is darker alittle..

    I payed $190, Free shipping. I wanted something as close to stock smoked bezel lights as possible, and this is what I found.. I love them! just not that slight difference in shade...

    I hate when i'm wrong. haha. Well good thing is it's "not that noticeable". I'm sure in certain angles it gets worse though.

    Oh nice! I was just on another thread that a guy bought some off of eBay and re-sealed them. They were the black ones though. I like that look.

    You totally went the right route, in my opinion. I wouldn't go with the black ones if my truck wasn't black

    Evan, are you keeping them? If I paid $190 for lights and they weren't right, I'd let them know and have them fix it. I can understand if they were used and maybe $60.

    You could have gotten a new pair of headlights from rockauto for 90 bucks and done the bhlm and resealed them. Speaking of resealing make sure you reseal the ones you have now or they will leak down the line. But to answer your question OP it isn't all that noticeable but I am the same way you are when it comes to symmetry lol.
