thanks Adam. I really do appreciate that. Couldn't agree anymore on the end appearance though. Definitely worth it.

Why did you take down the pics? It clearly shows paint on the reflectors around the bulbs.

Edit: NVM that was the other thread. Why 2 threads?

Because you are stating it doesn't affect the beam when in fact I guarantee your lumen output is lower. The black is absorbing light and heat as I stated in your other thread. Im not being a troll im just stating facts others should hear.

well the fact is your not here to see how my headlights output is and can't compare it to before. Whereas I can and I stated that it hasn't affected my light output as its great still. But thanks for your opinion on something you have no clue about..

Now you are just ignoring facts

no shit I got it. I'm not retarted. Your a troll and a jackass because I clearly stated that it hasn't affected my light output as it still is great and lights up the road great. Figure it out....

You figure out the facts

Facts:

1. It's chrome for a reason
2. Black absorbs light and heat
3. Which WILL lower your lumen output

I can't wait until your headlights melt

I guarantee 100percent that if you would have used a luxmeter to test the output before and after you would see a difference
