ebay clears are less than quality product.

Wire will be near the hole. Use a dentist mirror to find it inside the fender.

IMO-Cleared out turning signals require Cleared out taillight turn signals to look right and even then its not going to get you anymore women, or stop you from blowing the doors off hondas.

IM0- BMW knows better, if they wanted us to have clear plasic then they would have put them on origionally...

you do know that the clears were an option on e36s, and standard on most Ms and euro specs right?

and they are also standard now on all NA models?

No offense blokes, just my preference. Like I said if the fronts match the backs then you’re good to go, I got people in my area that do one or the other and it looks so bad.... The human eye follows color schemes, mine, is amber.

i think the 98 328i had them, im not sure where to look cuz u cant really see much inside the panel cuz its dark and i have no idea where dat wire runs from. ya ive hered about the e-bay clears dat they are preety shitty. im just gona stick with the original stuff, and change my lights to the other lights that makes them look crystal white or blue.
