Spray tint is good if you know how to spray even coats all over to make it look clean and you can pretty much make it as dark as you want it
You can buy AVS covers for your headlights but they can run pretty high for a piece of durable tinted plastic considering your on a budget
You can usually get a tint shop to tint you headlights and tails for a decent price depending on where you live

Thats about all I have so maybe someone can give you more info =)

Good luck!

My lights are all blacked out now, VHT nightshade in the rear, sprayed, clear coated, then wet sanded and polished with scratch fixer and turtle wax. Also instead of the tint on the front lights you can take your headlight housing apart and paint the chrome piece black, then it will be black but the lens will still be clear and wont affect your light output

Tinted headlights are not very good if you live in an area that has alot of unlighted streets, like a country setting, tinted headlights arent good. Had a set of tinted headlight covers on my Cherokee in NM and had to take them off every night because I had to run high beams all the time at night.
