they are not actually darker. the shade that goes over the capsules is black so they appear much darker

My first instinct is that he smoked them, and got a ticket. Wouldn't hurt to ask.

Good call Bill........or maybe he didn't like the decrease in light transmission.

Has anyone been able to verify whether these are factory GXP headlights or a tint job? I'm in the market for a LH headlight thanks to a little winter weather accident and keep seeing these on eBay asking for a possible trade.

I guess I should just send him an e-mail. I tend to believe they're the real deal based on his impressive feedback but don't really understand why he would want to trade instead of cash.
