Agreed. Either tint it or colormatch it and leave a strip of reflector exposed

On the black heads murdered out, I'd agree tint. On black heads with PTM parts I'd agree, color match or tinted.

The chrome heads, not so much. Like the candy red ones above, IMO, the bright orange reflector clashes with the red shroud. A tinted reflector on that chrome housing would look out of place given the small amount of black used on the shroud. A clear reflector would keep the balance nicely, nothing rice about it. Give it a complete chrome housing look and leave the focal point at the shroud.

Then again... What do I know. I have clear reflectors on my 05 because tint or PTM would look stupid. Must be the biggest rice burner of all time...

While I'm not a fan of the white markers, altezza look, or anything subjectively ricified, FX4life makes a good point here.

I have orange reflectors, but I have black projector shrouds.

Red markers on the front would be a no-no, yes?

I have seen knockoff OEM look headlights on eBay, with white reflectors.
