Dark window tint and Z28 headlights

Those who have dark window tint on their Z especially windshield tint (some folks may have a medical exemption for it or not) but are the stock halogen headlights bright enough at night? Have you switched out the headlight bulbs to HIDís or LEDís?

Put LED bulbs in those halogen headlights. Literally night and day difference.

Beamtech
H11 for high and lows(halogens only). Iíd pull each bulb out of yours to double check the bulb type before ordering. I put them in my V6 last year but ordered another set for my Z28. I bought them on amazon. As I remember they were easy to install and you can index them to shine better in the headlight bezel. Looks like they have a different bulb with heat sink and light that might be improved if they fit. The other heat sinks are a bit bulky but they still work great.
