My headlights went from cloudy and crapy to this

Tell me what you all think. If you are in Washington and interested my budy who paints for boeing does this for about 100 bucks and guarantees them for life. In my case I had him paint match the upper portion and the blinker still shines through as does the headlight and angel eyes of course.

Thanks a lot guys. I was half expecting to get flamed for doing something different. I think it will look great once I get the 22s back on. I also want to re-tint the windows to match the tinted lights as the tint that's on the car now has a bit of a mirror look and doesn't really match the lights in certain angles. Also Im thinking about using plasti dip on the 745LI badge or just buying one that is matte black to compliment the tinted lights as well. I don't want to go overboard though and have it look cheesey.
