    hey guys i have a 2003 c class coupe with the old circle headlights , ive got the car looking better by painting the front grill gloss black but i really dont like the feeling the headlights are giving me so i was thinking to tint them black , does anybody has that and can share a few pics so i can get an idea of what it looks like ? ( p.s the car is silver )

    So, to be clear, you wish to reduce the light output from your headlights for reasons of aesthetics?:wallbash:

    Be careful, the new MoT now checks for this.
    A lamp with a product on the lens or light source: - which obviously reduces light intensity or changes emitted colour

    Personally, I think clear front lenses look better for the headlights. Smoked tail lights can work but only on specific models of car.

    I quite like the whole yellow foglight look but I think that's from also owning a couple of French cars! haha

    This is the wrong forum for asking "Who's done what cosmetic modifications".

    It's an old car, either restore it to it's former glory, or put the money towards something else/newer/better condition.
