I think the smoked looks nice, but it can easily be outta place on our cars.

I think smoked works on Black cars, or silver cars with a dark tint.

On other colors it seems like the regular Euro spec lights enhances itself and makes it stand out a bit more........ like Deloriats above

I prefer the regulation clears.., but thats me. They do look better on silver or black cars.

You said they were OEM's? Where did you find those and how much. I think Bavo has theres set at 235 or so. You can always return em.

its pretty easy... once you look in the trunk you will quickly see. All you need is a socket wrench (an extension is handy as well)

Keep in mind that those smoked aren't oem. They are a cheaper aftermarket company, and bavauto advised me NOT to buy them. They told me that they had problems with them, and that they prefer the oem's.

If they hold up, I'm sure they will look good, pictures always make them look darker than they are.

Good point. I just did the Pinnacle Performance Depo deal.

They are definately of much lower quality. To be honest if you didn't install them yourself you probably wouldn't notice the difference. The fit isn't exactly perfect, but there is some ability to adjust the positioning in the housing to make the fit almost right.

The driver side is flush with the side of the car, but the pass side is slightly in. The average person won't pick it up, but I spent 20 mins trying to get it right.

Also the inside is definately cheap. You'll see when you try to get the bulbs in. I got error codes and spent another 20 mins trying to get the bulbs in perfect to get rid of em.

Left it out in the rain tonight--->no fogging

Overall. Well outside of the growing pains getting them in due to the lower quality, the $100+ I saved made the pains worth it.
