Default Headlight tint?

asking for you guys' opinion for the smoked headlight film..

i have a black 2005 GXP.. black and chrome wheels.. fully tinted
main reason of thinking to do it is because i hate that orange reflector.. and i dont think im ready to break them apart to clear them...

have any one tried them before?

Although it would look nice on a black car. I prefer to leave them alone.

I like as much light as possible while driving at night. Also, in the state of Washington, tinted headlights or headlight covers that are not clear will get you pulled over and either a warning or a ticket will be the end result.

I'm from Manitoba, Canada. Where can I find the film for the headlights and taillights at? It'* my belief the film can be taken off during night driving so long as the film is preserved. The tint alone on my car is nice but I want to create a more aggressive look.
