Default Copy Pontiac?

well, I'll admit, I like the dark-look of the headlights on the 2000+ Bonneville. Ya know, the black plastic around the housing of the headlamps. My question is, what do you think they look like on my car? Does it look out of place?

Furthermore, how would you go about doing something like that? The part that is now black is actually a very reflective/smooth chrome.. Granted if I did do this, I would buy used headlights off of Ebay maybe incase it looked totally bad in person. what'* your opinion on this? I had someone photoshop it for me because I couldn't get the right effect.

and here'* a picture of before the photoshop above..

I personally kinda like it dark, gives it almost a meaner look to your car.

I would go black (you never go back, apparently) but I would also clear the amber there while I had the head light apart.

My vote is for chrome. Goes better with your car colour.
Yes, and clear those corners.

The black would look awsome if u cleared the corners....if not I'd just leave 'em....just my opinion.
