DIY Yellow Highbeam Reflector Bowls

I didn't read all 8 pages...anyone have any night time shots with the lights on? Does it take away from night vision? I really want the yellow on my steel blue.

Does it take away from the long distance sight down the road?

For me, no it doesn't. I have halogens and I have no trouble seeing at night. Green and white road signs appear more vibrant and noticeable and it makes the car look cool. So it was beneficial to me in multiple ways.
