I'm 99.9% positive I got the link to the site from here, but I don't recall anyone mentioning them yet. It appears smoked headlamps and taillamps are already available, what do you think:

I thought you meant the other blacked out taillights... They aren't all black but the backing is black. The rest of the housing is clear.. I want those lights but Ive only seen them for the taillights, havent seen the blacked out headlights yet.

EDIT: Heres some pics of what I mean in case I have confused anyone...

I saw those kinds of lights on a Civic before... butt ugly, imho. I'd rather have the blacked-out housing lights.

the black headlight housing is available at Mazda's Japanese website. You should be able to navigate around the website, just point over a icon and check the status bar of IE.

Here is the response I got back from specr

No, I think what he's saying is this:

The headlight covers are convex surfaces, and they enjoy the company of other convex surfaces.

I'm not sure what the played out thing means, but I'm sure it has deep significance.

As I understand it, it is the actual headlamp that is smoked, not some chinsy plastic covers over the lenses.

Generally a smoked headlamp will look much better than the plastic covers, but there are instances in which I have seen the covers make it look even better, but all has to do with the curves of the body (Like on the SN-95 Mustang, a very shapely car at base, with a black body on black covers, the covers look more natural than the actual headlamps themselves)

why would you do that to your headlights? if u didnt understand my comments above, I THINK IT LOOKS CHEESY, and chances are it probably reduces your vision at night. the tails look ok tho

besides, i doubt its some commercial aftermarket product like some of you guys think. it strongly looks like transparent paint

You don't have an optimistic nature do you?

I driven Mustang GTs with tinted lamps, no difference in light output using OE halogens. EVen if it does, there is a growing number of us moving up to HID lights anyway.

well if it reduces vision or not that remains to be seen. untill you know what they are using to tint the glass i dont think you can possibly know either. i highly doubt the actual glass is smoked, therefore some kind of paint is being used or maybe even a film

*ps, this is all strictly my opinion and id hate for every car to look the same, so by all means go forth with your endeavors. i just wont do it to my car :D and i already have hid's on my max :)

Meh, you must be psychic or something Choppa, just got this email:

Hi Mr Edward,

Thank you for your email. For the Smoked headlamps and taillamps is US$15.00 per piece. We install a special film for headlamps on the exterior of your existing headlamps. Lights are able to penetrate as normal even it is smoke tinted.

But you are from overseas we can't do it on your vehicle, we mainly do it for our local customer vehicles. Thank you.

Best regards,
Laurence Lee.

heh, i knew it wasnt natural.

that film deteriorates too, being on the headlamps they are vulnerable to all the road debris that make our bumpers look like sh!t, im skeptic on how long it would stay looking good

As for the Tinted Smoke lamp we only sell to local customer because we need to have hands on your headlamp to apply a special tinted film on the headlamps.


Thats what they told me
