what kind of car? coupe/sedan color? green coupe? i would say black housing looks cleaner and will have more light output. black tyc projector will also look nice though. i would say go jdm

I like the look of the TYC, but dunno about the actual quality of light output... But at the same time, blacked out headlight looks really good

tyc will not have as much light on the road as stock. thats also something to consider.

I had the same problem deciding thatwhen i got my tycs about a year ago. little longer now. Was gonna go the jdm look, but i didnt want to ruin my stock lights incase I wanted to go back to stock, and not pay a ton to get new ones. Then I decided if i was gonna pay for headlights I might as well get something different. So I went with the tycs, like those better than the other style projectors. That was my reason for going with them, and still am glad I did. Look sexy with eyelids.

As for as light output. It is worse, but only slightly. And the Brights on them kick ***. Lights up everything! I would say better than stock brights. So for those times its a little darker than I want, just flip those brights on, and no problem.

Recently i have been considering an HID kit. But most people say they are a waste, and to just retrofit. So Thats my plan, just wait, will be worth it in the end.

Whatever you decide it will look good, I keep considering switching to the JDM look at times. But I'm lazy, and still like what I have.

It all depends on what u want. IMO TYC's with eyebrows Look better than blacked out stock headlights, But the light output is worse. I would rather be able so see the road at night, so i switched back to stock. But whne i get a retrofit, I might go with the tyc's again.
