Might I add this will significantly help hide the splintered/cracked plastic look of the lenses that overheating or age seems to cause.

Should look good if it fits right. Curious as to how dark it'll be also since the GXP lights already have a slight smoke to them

Shouldn't be darker than in the pictures. They also have them for the SSEi. I'll take pictures once I get them and install them.

Very true. I guess we'll wait and see. I'm not concerned with light output since I have HIDs in there now. If anything, it will make me feel better about the extra brightness of the HIDs in regard to other drivers.

These things came in. Installation sounds straightforward. Should be getting them on this week or this weekend.

Its not cracked, it just has tiny heat fractures that give it a splintered look in some areas.
