I fell if the car isnt black, you shouldnt tint the headlights... Looks juvenile in my opinion because the contrast is too great.

I'd have to see it I suppose, but that would make sense to me. I also think that Lexus has done such a good job with the headlights that I don't really want to mess with them at all.

Tinting headlights is a no no.

Explain to me why you want to put a tint (neutral density filter) on the headlights so that you cannot see the road as well at night. Down home, after the wreck, we call that stupid.

I'll admit that I haven't really heard of tinting headlights before.

The Camaro5 group do that a lot. I think it is supposed to make the car look more stealth or bad ass. IMHO anything that cuts down on the light coming from a headlight or taillight and is just dumb.

tinting headlights have been around for a long time across many makes and models.
observing the tuning scene over the past years, there's quite a broad range of cars with them, which is expected considering the ease of doing it, or if you're paying someone, how much cheaper it can be than other 'modifications'

I also am not sure about legality. When I started typing tinted headlight into google it recommended finishing it with "legal in Ontario" and "illegal". So I would say that if you are thinking about this you should look into whether it is legal in your jurisdiction or not.

Here is a look at what the tined and non tinted taillights look like on the Camaro.

Legal is not really the issue. Under the law, you are allowed to juggle chain saws.
