do smoked corner lights look better than clear?


because i dont really like the clear corners... they dont go good with the black housings of the headlights..

It kinda depends on the style of the car. I think my car would look terrible with smoked...but someone on the forums has a dark grey bmw, it's a totally neutral color, and smoked looks awesome on his. Just try and get your car to be consistent and I am sure it will look great, it is after all an e36! They look great even stock!

I have smoked corners and sides as well. I think the standard clears stand out too much, the smoked seem to blend better....
