what did you get dissed for??? the only draw back i can tell is that they are a bit milky but, that will go with some great polishing...

meh, too many keyboard cowboys that have their "mechanic" to do it all and think they know it all.

yeah, i have replied, since you can clear the headlight projectors is the way to go (and only way), i am contemplating HIDs, however since i cannot get clear lenses i can't go projectors, so will need really good bulb covers, not sure what they are called, to reduce the glare from the bottom of the headlight.

For a HC, custom covers would be the only way around it. (Pricey exercise too) BUT, worth considering...
