Going to get corners and side markers pretty soon. I like the CLEAR corners, not the white looking ones. There like crystal clear, but i also like the smoked corners and side markers. Whats the general concensus here, smoked or clear? Im sort of leanin toward clear myself but id like to see some pics. of smoked corners. Just need advice. thanks.

Alpine White 328 IS, Pioneer Head Unit, Jensen Band pass box, debaffled air box w/ K&N filter, supersprint exhaust. clear corners and side markers, More to come....

I would say smoked, because those can be purchased OEM quality. The CLEAR lights are not OEM and have a reputation for fogging.

Go with smoke if you car is dark and go with clear if you car is light. For looks anyway.

you would think its a nice contrast but it makes the car dirty looking (to me atleast)
i would go with clear (as in oem type clears) all around
