my thought would be glossy would reflect light either better or in diffrent areas, throwing the beams crazy directions, and gloss would be like normal. thats just my thought, im prob wrong tho ha.

Well i guess depends on the color of your car mine is black....And i did flat black and i love it... BUt one caution DO NOT TOUCH THE INSIDE OF THE LENSE, you will regret ask OBZ and ME. We both did it and you can tell....

1. Take the wires off the head lights
2. put in oven at 200 degrees is what i did leave for like 10-15 min
3. Take out and slowly pull apart but try to keep the glue from falling on the lense or on the housing ( you will regret it)
The housing comes off the back side by i think 3 screws.
IT is best to do this one headlight at a time....

And make sure you reseal it good or condensation gets in there..
