Question Need advice on clear corners...post pics please

Want to add clear corners with my Depo group buy euro headlights with angel eyes....on the way!
checked Ebay for smoke front corners...going for about $40 CDN + shipping compared to ~$8 to 10 + shipping for regular clears or diamond cut euros
Same sort of price jump for rear smoked tails compared to regular clear tails, clear diomond euro tails with clear at top look nice but may be a bit too rice?

I have a '93 E36 4 door in Diamontscwartz 181 (metalic black/ diomond black)paint and double 5 spoke 17" motorsport rims....

What looks best with my colour...clear/ smokes/ Diamond cut???
Has anyone mixed and matched...smoke corners with diamond cut rears? Or should I stay traditional with basic clears on all 4 corners???

Opinions please...and pics on black/ diamond black E36's if possible

Thanks!!

Also, do any GTA shops carry the clears at comparable prices to ebay?

i have the second ones with white LED bulbs. I will be ditching them to get smoked soon though, but will be keeping the LED's. I will soon be getting the depos as well (not with the group buy) and will be putting them with the smoked. or all black corners.

Spooner, yep smokes would stand out less against your black paint. Leaning toward smokes myself...and then again there are the euro clears that seem to look less white and match the headlights better....rice? (not to mension the euro clears are $30 less than smokes...
Are your LEDs yellow?
Black corners...like these black ones?

Have not seen those on an E36?
BTW, your car looks amaizing in the trees, reflecting on the perfect black paint

thats what I was thinking so I did not include them in my choices...but sometimes you have to see them with a car wrapped around them to get a better idea...I thinking rice too but if anyone has a set on a black E36 so I can see the rice factor? I try to leave the rice with my son and his CRX.
BTW, did you mean the black corners or the clear euros?

I'm also getting the Depos and i've been thinking of getting smoked corners because i think that they look good on black. Keep in mind that if you are a perfectionist, then smoked corners in the front means smoked lights all over. This will end up costing you a couple hundred more than the regular whites.

That's not too bad then. But it seems almost impossible to get the smoked lights from somewhere in the GTA and shipping from Ebay is a killer. I think that my decision would be based on what I can find in the GTA cuz I would like to save on shipping costs.

I wonder if any of the site sponsors carry smokes for E36's?
