    well...thats something to look into. i have the smoked ones on mine, but looking to trade them for the BHLM instead of messing up these purdy smoked ones. in this pic u can kinda see the difference between the blingy chrome of the headlights and the smoky of the bezel

    The primary difference between the one in the top is the running indicator and turn signals were taped off when painted. That way they remained chrome (and maintain a brighter light out put). It makes it look quiet a bit different, but they are still the stock lights. Mine are fully painted.... here's a pic for comparison.

    Actually I chickened out and got them off neweggmall.com (but it appears they're not longer available on there). I got a good deal on them, $105 shipped, figured at the worst I'd have a backup pair of lights. There's plenty of write ups out there on how to do it..

    I think what she ment were overlays like the tail light overlays that completely black them out (or a lot of chevy's run around with).

    Anybody have the ebay replacement black headlights? How do they hold up? I've heard they just need a light bead of silicone and they're good to go?

    If your going to get the black headlights from eBay make sure you buy them from the seller "Revotek." His don't leak...

    Yes I do have these headlights. All other headlights from other sellers leak and fog, especially those with the smoked amber and turn signals. I've done my homework and I can guarantee that Revotek sells legit lights.
