hey guys,

i have a silver 328is. i have the standard american headlights. dont u think the smoked would match the headlights better than the clear? i wud like both the headlights as well as the parking lights to be a
similar shade. -- in that smoked is the way to go right?

I think clear looks really nice on a black car. I have a jet black car and can't wait to slap some clears on there.

I went with smoked as well. IMO the clear stand out too much. The smoked lenses blend in better with the headlight assembly and look more oem. The clears stand out and deffinately look aftermarket.

yes i agree...i used to have whites and they were WAY to bright so i had to change...but also smoked really only looks good on greyish and black cars.

hard call...i think smoked tails would look good but i dont know about the front...but then again, it would be weird to have smoked tails and clear corners up front. try to make a photoshop pic maybe?
