    YO! Do not black your smoked headlights. If you are gonna do that sell them to me. I am looking for a set of 09+ smoked headlights. If you want to BHLM get some 05-08 ones. Lemme know cause I want to change mine out.

    Don't bhlm your smoked ones. You could easily get somebody to trade headlights (+ a little cash possibly) with you for some non-smoked ones to do the mod with.

    I like my smoked ones but would love BHLM ones. Glad to see you traded them since they are still nice and there would have been plenty other people who would have traded them as well.
