    I searched around before I posted this but couldn't find a complete answer. I just have a couple questions:

    Will the OEM smoked headlights from the '09-'10 models fit an '08?

    Also, is it better to buy these headlights (if they do indeed fit), buy blacked out lights, or make my own?

    What are your thoughts?

    All model headlights from 2005-2010 will fit each other. I'm pretty sure the 2011's will fit as well. You can do the BHLM yourself and save yourself some money. Or you can get some aftermarket ones off ebay but they arent the best quality.


    Oh and you just missed the Vegas meet a few weeks ago!!!

    The BHLM is much easier than you think.

    If you read the directions here and take your time you should not have any problems.

    If you've never done anything like this before you should make this a Saturday project. Don't rush thru it.

    Thanks for the help, guys.

    Yeah, I just joined not to long ago, so I was pretty bummed to see I missed that gathering. Hopefully there will be another one soon that I can attend!

    Has anyone tried using a different color than black? For example maybe the nightsades tint spray so it isn't totally black. Has anyone tried it?

    I did mine in Speedway Blue to match the body color. I love it.
