    blacking out headlights will cause cracking and seal failure due to excessive heat expansion and contraction. If you plan on driving with headlghts on don't do it. I did it on mine as product research they failed within 1st year removed the crap and had both lights waranted

    This is true. I had 3m on my headlights originally and it caused excessive cracking on the lens itself. So i claimed them through insurance and got a new set free and have been without the 3m on it and no problems.

    I think what he is trying to tell is that if you use 3M adhesive tint over your headlights they will crack them and cause seal failure due to excessive heat build up in the lights.
