Help!!!! Looking to purchase new headlights

I've been looking to purchase new headlights for my 2010 Chevy Cobalt Ls! I want the same style as the factory headlights (meaning I don't want to have to use a different lighting system) but I want them to have a black housing! I've seen some but they are smoked out and I don't know if that effects the visibility or not! I was searching on Amazon but most of them seem to be of poor Quality!!! Plz help!!!

You could open your headlights and paint the housing black then re seal it, if your just looking for a black housing.

It's very hard to mess them up. Plus a smoked headlight just tints the lense not the housing.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

Honestly man there's no point on dishing about like a couple hundred bucks for the blacked out headlights just throw them in an oven open them and then paint what you want black

If you want to try painting your own but also want a set of "backup" headlights, I've got a pair of stock headlights for sale. I'm asking $70 + shipping (about $100 total depending on where you live). PM me if you're interested. Otherwise, those ones blu3_v1p3r posted would be good.
