Taking out the orange reflector is real hard. you would have to take apart the headlight, and this headlight seems indestructable. I've tried.

Three solutions,

You can black it out like you mentioned.

You can buy the Euro style headlights. Its a lot cheaper now since the release of the LCI headlights.

You can buy the Euro headlight stickers and overlay on top of the amber.


Good luck!
