Black sedans, show me tail light options please!

Looking to grab some new tail lights. I had the stock ones tinted when the car was sprayed but it was only temporary until I decided which style I wanted. Now that I've been looking around ebay I can't decide on a set. Help me out!

R/C/R or all red. I didn't like the RCR at first, but they flow much better compared to LED tails that I wanted.

IMO LED's on a facelifted sedan make the car look dated. R/C/R.

Is it possible to get R/C/R to work on a pre-facelift without a lot of wiring?

OEM Prefacelift Clears, simple OEM bolt on with no bulb out warning or wiring BS to deal with.

Or get regular EE LED tails, they look pretty OEM and no regular person thinks my car is a day older than 2005

Smoked gets old quick. Clear LEDs look a lot cleaner. If you don't mind halogen bulbs r/c/r's are awesome looking too.
