I say Chrome


But Beware thoes are very cheap and low quality. I've had other cheap tailights and they suck. I now have TYC tails and they are very high quality. I Have TYC Headlights and they are a perfect fit and DOT complient. Plus they come with all the bulbs already

I say go with Chrome TYC projectors. Dont buy that cheap stuff because you will regret it. I know many people who have.

I can get you a deal on the TYC headlights.

here is a pic of mine i just got last week and they work great!

poor light quality, bulbs would blow easily, etc..
I had chrome TYC's on my silver accord, great light output, looked great.

depends which look you're going for.. if you want or have smoked tails, then get black housing.. if u have red/clears or other tails, get chrome..

btw, my sig has aftermarket clears.. not anything else.. i was thinking of those angel eye ones for a while.. iono might sacrifice not driving around at night. LOL.

Well that's a tough one. Usually, in my opinion, it looks better if you have a good amount of contrast between your car's color and your headlamps, so in this cause I'd go for the black. Also, I think Black Headlmaps look more aggressive than Chrome; Chrome to me is more elegant and classy. Its your call. So Agressive = Black Chrome = Classy

Lol update...
I got the black halo housing from my friend cuz he got them and blah blah his accord died and i ended up with them for only 100. so I got them. Installed them. Didn't fit perfectly and i had them for the nite. i was like this is pissing me off cuz i guess i want perfect. so i woke up and reinstalled them. and i guess i hooked up the black bar under the headlight wrong and stuff fixed that and it fits perfectly. Driving at night seems exactly the same besides i can see more on the side and its rainbow and pretty lol. only thing that pisses me off is my damn high beam doesnt go anywhere i swear. it lights up super bright in front of me. I could see a penny if it was in front of me lol. but yeah. Good stuff.

...
I still haven't hooked up my angel eyes though. I heard if i hooked it up to my parking lights it might melt the headlights and that sounds kinda scary but when u have the headlights on or anything. the ring does light up.. yeahhh lol

well i havent gotten any pics yet cause my dad has my camera. so yeah. but i have a problem. my low beams aka regular lights are just fine perfect cuz projectors of course dont shoot as far but they light up more in the front yeah. but then the high beams. they beam super strong right in front into the ground like 6 feet in front of my bumper. yeah thats not gonna help. and i was wondering how u aim them up. I did a search and found how to do it but when i loosened or tighten the silver screw behind the high beam bulb rubber cover it moves it left and right. i just moved both of them all the way in so its in a way making an A. but i need somehow to point them up more instead of down. Thanks.
PS. i type too much

nah the installation is clean. it fits perfectly. well not perfect. on the left headlight if ur looking at the car the bumper doesnt go up all the way but you can't really tell. i think i installed the black part kinda ghetto but yeah. but it doesnt affect the headlight and thats not even the side of my intake lol. its just my high beam. i know how to adjust the low beams. low beams can move up down left and right. but my high beam can only move left and right and i want to know how to make it move up and down hehe.

well i just relized they fit even more perfect if u have another person helping you. you have to losen the top bolt and tell someone to push the side in where the side marker is and screw it back in. its super perfect. i found out by installing my stock back in cuz my dad got pissed cuz the highbeam was funny. ill just reinstall them next week lol. but yeah intersting

IMO, TYCS, HALO, whatever aftermarket sucks.... if you don't want to spend money on the expensive stuff, just stick with OEM.. if your just looking for good light output with no extra color or razor sharp cutoff, stick to oem with oem bulbs.. OEM has pretty good to damn good light output IMO...
