If I recall correctly the headlights are not smoked, the housing is black. Kind of like the black 4th gen 1 pc headlights.

Ask andrewdelvard and Guiddy to compare...end of story.

This is the url for the JDM brochure scans. http://msnhomepages.talkcity.com/YosemiteDr/cargirl23/JDM.html
The page is down right now though....I can't remember if the pictures are good enough to tell the difference. The best bet in getting an answer is to have the guys in England compare their cars for us.

I never saw the real thing, I only saw a picture of some guy's headlights who had taken them apart and smoked them so they looked like the real ones. I can't remember who's car it was though.

I was looking at my JDM brochure and the Type S lights do not looked smoked at all. Yes, that inner reflector piece looks a little darker like on the new preludes here in the US, but it's not blacked out.

You can take yours apart and black it out yourself, which I did. But I'm kind of pissed at myself now, because I guess I didn't reseal one light too good, and I'm getting moisture condensation inside it now

This is one of the UK guys' JDM Preludes. Forgive me, I don't remember which one... It was imported to the UK as a used car from Japan, so it is a "real" JDM Type-S model.

The headlamps do not look smoked or even darker to me...

The rest of his pics are here...

All of the brochures I have with the TypeS in them don't show different headlights for the TypeS.

Give us a picture or give us some proof, until then, I think you're full of it.
