I just installed smoked side markers. The light is white. Does it need to orange? or is the whiteish color a-ok?

I didn't see orange side marker lights that are clear or even oragne at bavauto like for the clear parking/tail lights...

bmpd may have everything but I can't find any of what I'm lookin for...

I was pretty sure the clear sides come with lights but didn't think the smoked did, as it just said asemblys not a full kit like the clears which also take 2-4 weeks for delivery....

Well technically most states require that you still use the orange/amber bulbs when making the sidemarkers clear, but I just left mine white cause its not really that big a deal, until I piss off a cop Schucks usually has most types of light bulbs, I know for a fact that aroundhere they sell orange turn signals. If not, check ebay, it has everything

But if I were you, i would leave the white bulbs in, they make it look SO much better. I bought the PIAA superwhites from Bavauto when I bought my smoke sidemarkers and corners from them, and it looks incredible. THe smoke goes grerat with my silver car.

I like the smoked on mine. I will take pics once she is cleaned up again, I don't know if I will post them or not. But she is a dirty girl right now so that will have to wait anyways...

I'm planning on eventauly doing smoked parking and tail lights after window tinting....

my honest opinion is to try to keep the colour orange. white and blue just stand out too much from the front and rear turn indicators.

Regarding front amber park lights:

I would like to have one side red and the other side blue; that way when I was driving toward someone, it would look like an airplane...

My sidemarkers are tied with my turn signals so it wouldn't look like an airplane. But they could be wired to the parking lights or to a seperate swith for the same effect....

That would have to be some strong ass IR to burn. UV would be good too as thats how we get tans and sun burns....

Or, you could just turn your washer nozzles to the side and and spray people on the sidewalk.
