I think they would match the aftermarket headlight look better than the frosted ones but that is my opinion.

Crytal clears will look best with the glass projector shells you got...frosted corners always look like extra cheap plastic knock offs next to glass surface of the projectors IMO!!

As of now, I'm sticking with the quality and contrast of the orange OEM corners!

I thought having frosted would go well with the silver of your car.

I'm running the same Model, same Colour (even a '98 too), I've got the frosted lens and I really like the way it looks with the silver paint job.

However Id like to see what it would look like with those VR items on. Until then Frosted gets my vote!

Cheers

ridikuledind has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Forsted...it looks the best. I have the crystal clear corners and they look bad. I took them off after a few weeks.

Frosted. Crystals are really terrible in person. Frosted should match your car color better.


Haha is this another "i was driving in my e36 and suddenly my corner light came out" thread. Oh man torque remember bitching about this?
