JLevi Sedan Clear Tails...are they totally clear?

I ordered a pair of supposed clear tail lights off of ebay and they came with this built in little orange reflector inside the taillight housing. Of course this totally negated the purpose of avoiding the egg yolk appearance.

So with that being said, is the turn signal portion of JLevi's clear tails totally clear, and if so, do they make a stealth bulb for the rear turn signals?

From what I understand they are totally clear, I'm putting in an order sometime this weekend. They make LED turn signal bulbs for the back and front.... which is what Nick from Jlevi recommended.... so that is what I'll be going with.

I believe they are 35$ per set. They are not plug and play for my car at the least, I will need resistors with mine... not so sure about your car though. Anyways, installation is supposed to be a breeze...

Yep they are totally clear, they will come with an orange bulb that will give off the egg yolk effect but just swap those out with our LED or Stealth bulbs and all will be good

Not in my case. My front turn signals (OEM Euro) use the bulbs with the offset "posts", and the rear turn signals use the "posts" that are directly across from each other like -0- .

Yep 180 degree offsets versus 150, some cars have them changed but to be safe just check with your stock bulbs. 1156 is 180 offset, 7507 is 150 so order according to your stock bulb setup
