I'm not saying painting the highs black doesn't look menacing, but I personally would never go that far. I could never give up the functionality of my high beams for those times I need them. Just not worth it imo.

Mind telling me where you go that front plate insert?

I know I might get flamed for this question but here it goes...I have never had my headlights apart ...If you paint the high beam bowl and say down the road you want it back to chrome can you just replace the high beam bowl...? Is it a separate part ..? If so what is the part number...?

high beam bowl is the same piece where you find the low beam or xenon one. So if you go yellow, and dislike, you can go matte black after that
