I imagine that whe saying smoked vs chrome you are referring to the headlight housing. I say stick with black (smoked?). I really don't like the chromed look.

what i mean by smoked is :eBay.co.uk: BMW E36 2DR SMOKED ANGEL EYE HEAD LAMPS (item 8071526249 end time 28-Dec-06 21:38:19 GMT)

but if i was getting that i might stick to my factory fit housing and buy just the angel eye rings, this is my car at the moment: BMW*316*i*compact.DVDplayer/7"*(1995) - Used*Cars on Carzone.ie - New & Used Cars in Ireland

any ideas for back lights? lexus, led's, bmw? just cant picture my car with them properly. thanks in advance

I would just stick with te factory housings and buy rings separately. Those from eBay and what not are cheap plastic. If I am not mistaken, you have glass headlight housings, which are better.
