clear or smoked?

I'm changing my stock Taillights and corners next week.

i have a red e36.

do you think i should get clear or smoked lights. i'v seen red e36's that looked bad with clear's, thats why i am considering smoked.

I think both would look good, but I would rather go with the clears if it was my car. Everyone has different taste though. Do what YOU think is better. Just make sure the clears are not cheap looking or quality. If you do buy the knock off's, silicone the outer edges on the back so water doesn't leak in.

i would go clear corners and clear tails, just my prefference..smoked can look really good too but i think on red clears would be a better choice, just cuz gray and red dont mix too well..
