Help me pick ones of these! My current rear tail lights are clear but I have a smoked look going on my car. I want your opinions if I should keep it clear or get these "smoked" tail lights? Help!

Thanks,
Steve

the smoked ones look interesting...I would like to see how they look on the car...

But personally, I would go OEM, I don't like how u can see the red through the white part on the fakies.

Yup, got 4 door. I don't think you would want them. I can e-mail you pics if you want. They have some serious issues! The inside plastic melted where the bulb holders go. I guess that's what I get for going cheap. They can me fixed but I don't want to bother with them. Your in OH other wise I would have given them to you for free. Unless you want to pay for shipping...you can have them for free once i get my new ones.

m5 clears might match more since u have a 'light' paint colour....but i still think the smoked will accent ur rims better especially if u have the centres blacked out(not sure if thats still the case)

anywho be sure to post pix come summertime *th-up*

If you read my first post it clearly says "opinions" because I could not make up my mind if I wanted the smoked (which to me look alittle rice) or the euro clears and spray them. I also asked if that is legal because I heard it was illegal to tint spray them!?
NO I don't mod my car to make others happy and I do not give two shits about what other people think about my car.
Thank you for your input.
Thanks for the free bump and if you did not notice I was laughing just joking but looks like you either had a bad day or just missed that part? :)

I got it from Performance Improvements in barrie, but they ahve other locations as well i belive on the queensway and in scarborough as well. Any performance shop should have it. I don't think that crappy tire has it but i got my clear fro there.
