Clear or smoked on topaz blue?
 
Which would look better? IM looking to upgrade the front, at least for now, to clears or smoked, what do you guys think?

I'll try to take pics of mine in the morning... well... later (it's 2 am, but I gotta get some sleep) haha. I've got smoked corners and sides.... looks aMAZing. Unfortunately I still have amber bulbs so you'll have to get over that, lol. Oh, and my car's a lil dirty... but I'm sure you'll still get the idea

Clear FTW. Except if someone has a pic of a TB with smoked that would change my mind...

Oh, I will change your mind. lol
Seriously.. I love it. It totally changes the attitude of the car. I was supprised how such a small thing could make such a difference.

If you change to smked, how about tail light? will you change it as well?

If your grill is black, it will match though..

^^ I have the drip bar in black and the one along the door in chrome, i am only a student and i dont work so i cannot buy the tail lights right now since i want to buy all the mods myself, but eventually i would buy the taillights, for now just the front corners and the side markers
thanks

Question for Owtlaw333

__ Do you think i can put the regular white bulbs that the car already has or would it be too clear.? ALso, where did you get them and can you take a pic with your amber bulb on with the smoked casing. Thanks
Gabriel

Alrighty... here's the pics. Sorry bout the lighting (not the best). And don't mind the scrapes on the bumper :shhh: lol.

I've heard that the clear bulbs don't look so good. I guess they have a very faded yellow color. I'm just using the yellow bulbs that came with mine until I find a suitable alternative (probably LEDs).

I got mine from EmotionGarage (best price I could find at the time.... 30 bucks)

gaby1088 02-09-2007 04:46 PM
