Should be the same.
Curiosity screams to know why :?:
My concern would be making sure one gets the lens to housing sealed. Not a good place for water intrusion :shock:

That's exactly what I thought you would say!
Please look closer, you will find the lens is still clear and the unneeded portion of the housing is what is actually coated black.
Tinted headlamp covers/tinted lens are not legal!
