Google it before you tint your headlights. Its a well known and documented problem.

Yeah. Since I took it off. its not much different in terms of visibility. and I 100% miss it. mt next track event I am putting them back on since I have a whole Roll of them. and when I took off the Tint the headlight underneath where brand new so protection is amazing.
