Hello everyone...I just wanted to ask if the Carbon fiber headlight covers will allow enough light to pass through the headlights for night time driving conditions without taking them off??? Please only respond if you have first hand experience with them and not just speculating. Thanks.
When I had my carbon fiber "cat eyes" I originally had the stock bulbs, then converted to Sylvania's. I do most of my driving at night... so yeah.. the oem bulbs I could see the road, once I installed aftermarket... it was like the covers weren't even on.
The cat eyes have clear sections in them for light to shine through. The standard smoke or carbon fiber dont have those. I had the smoke covers on an F-150 and I left them on at night I just left the high beams on and had no problems seeing the road.
Hey crombie...the dude was talking about the difference between the cat-eye carbon fiber ones made by EGR and the full carbon fiber covers made by AVS...Thanks for the great visual though and all your help!!!!
When I had my carbon fiber "cat eyes" I was using PIAA bulbs. Although there are clear cutouts to let the light through, I did notice the covers blocked the light to where the beam wasn't as wide. I could see directly in front of me (the road), but the shoulder was hard to see.
Since I do most of my driving during the day, it wasn't a big issue.
i want those headlight covers plz tell me where i can get them
cause i had the smoke headlights and nice during the day but at night my fog lights were brighter then my head and i have after market bulbs in
hello, I found this site a few days ago. they have some good head light covers for about 54.99.....take a look at the "pro beam head light covers", then the "TRIBAL" ones...I think those would look good on my trep, but dont think they are available for intrepids, only Neon's.The also have both carbon fiber ones and also tail light covers too. the site can be seen here: http://www.deflectors4less.com/headlight-covers.html ENJOY!!
