Ambers or Smoked???
 
I have been considering going back to running ambers but am yet undecided? :hmm:

Give me your opinions and let me know what you think :thumbup:

Here is a few pics to get a look at what we are dealing with.

Thanks man I do agree, but I am torn because I have seen ambers on preface sedans and its :drool: So it leaves me wondering :hmm:

Your 323 is so ball.
Those black wheels and red calibers really contracts well with the white car.
It's a rare perfection.

Clears would be my thought, or stay smoked. Amber looks like crap on a pre-face AW car.

jasonbimmer 07-06-2012 08:30 PM

if you have painted headlights, use smoked or they will stand out pretty bad.

doshu 07-06-2012 09:24 PM

Your beautiful egg yolk would be even better with some black magic or some other tyre shiner IMHO

nike001 07-06-2012 09:26 PM

Clears.

M3Nick 07-06-2012 10:02 PM

Clears.
No roof rack.

Brinkley 07-07-2012 09:05 AM

Good looking car, I voted ambers, I think on a white car, particularly with black out grills and now with black rims, it adds a little color.

MrGL2 07-07-2012 02:23 PM

Smoked fits perfect, you could also sell me that roof rack :thumbup:

Beautiful amber.

& I'm sorry OP, I'm not liking those wheels. IMO, the stock wheels would've complimented the white paint much much more.

Wickedly 07-07-2012 10:59 PM

clears all the way

jasonbimmer 07-07-2012 11:44 PM

I dont like amber. it reminds me some of the old cars.

Solidjake 07-08-2012 08:02 AM

Smoked for pre-facelift cars.

dude dog 07-08-2012 12:38 PM

Ambers look real good. Different. I like em.

ac_2007 07-08-2012 04:13 PM

Keep the smoked, but purchase these bulbs: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/7507-PY21W-x2...item1c27f44afc

And program your corners to be off with the headlights.

I disagree, the amber when done right looks sick, just search some of the M's pullin it off with class :thumbup:

I kind of think this as well, also looks "non modded" but for those who know it looks "retro" and stylish

Have been wanting to do a corner delete as well as a drl delete but havent got around to it yet. Thanks!


So here is a little more background as to my dilemma, my ee tails have lost almost all the signal led's and either need to be replaced(which means more money:banghead:) or I can just go back to the ambers which would cost me nothing.

So I have to be almost pursuaded to keep the smoked because itll cost more money on tails which I just bought 2 yrs ago. :censor:

I have looked into the "fix" for the led's and it doesnt look like something I want to tackle so...

Beau B 07-08-2012 09:49 PM

I would leave it.. it looks great.
