Tinted Lenses & HID

I really like the way the blackout lenses look and think I will add them soon, but does anyone know:

Do they affect the color/performance of the lights at all?
Do HID look funky through a tinted lens?

The tinted lenses (side markers, and tail lights) are not affected by the tint at all. The true color of the lens is still there.

I do not know about the HID performance through tint.

Yes, all three shades of our HeadlightArmor Smoked Headlight Protection Kits will change the output of the lights. Not any way around that. How much would depend on which tint level was used.

Aside from the first few days post install when the water from the application is evaporating, there shouldn't be anything 'funky' about the light, HID or not.

More info on our products in our vendor thread here
