Chrome or Black Housing

I was wondering which set of headlights would look good on a 2001 silver Accord. I am going to get either the balck housing's or the chrome headlights. Let me know what you'll think.

i actually tried making DIY black chrome housings on my headlights, with Black Transparent Tint spray (hobby paint)

Seemed like a good idea at the time, but it Turned out weird. For some reason, the transparent tint had some blue/green hue to it, so when light reflected off the chrome, i saw blue/green reflections.

Now I have to take them apart again.

they do make gunmetal/black chrome housings, i've seen them in person, they look pretty cool, but like frryy said, they seem to have a bluish/green reflection around 'em...

N plus they were aftermarket, so of course fitment was crap..
