Question about tinting headlights

If i vht my headlights, will it reduce the output much.
I am thinking 1-2 light coats, and i will have 6000k hid's.
Will it scatter the light differently, or make the output worse, or close back to stock?

1-2 light coats shouldn't do much, if you put more than that you will probably get pulled over. Now with the HIDs You should def be fine! I'm not sure about it changing the light output though.

I suggest just painting the bezels black instead of tinting though. IMHO.

I knew someone who had tinted headlight covers (it looked retarded) and was told to take them off or don't drive at night...

*Edit: that was on a Chevy Astro Van though lol

Just my car is all black, and then those chrome ugly headlights throw the whole theme off.

Yeah, that is why I suggest the bezels... If you contact Unique Coatings and ask for Chad. They can probably hook you up with painted bezels.
