I would just spray your back ones with VHT niteshade if thats what your going for, im not a fan of the headlight covers though, i guess it wouldn't be bad if you had HID's just don't like the headlights blacked out

VHT IMO is easier than tint, although both aren't to hard. easy to take of the tails anyway, and most of the people that do actual tint do it so they can take it off if a cop yells at them or they don't like it. I live in MI and I've had 3 vehicles with the tails tinted been infront of cops aton and never had any probs

I NEVER want to hear anyone with tinted headlight covers say "my headlights suck at night"
Tinted headlight covers - welcome back to 1989!

Tinted headlights (could be free mod) + HIDS 45$ = still 10,000 times brighter than stock
