Ambers are just too common.

And remember there are Amber, Euro Clear and True clear.

The ones most people think of when they think clear is the reflector-plated housing (Euro-Clear). The clears I have take it a step further, and it is completely clear (Euro G3 True-Clear Lens) and the only reflector is the chrome plating that is plainly visible all the way to the bulb.

These are the True-Clears. They are aftermarket but the fitment is BETTER than OEM (atleast on my car it's easier to swap these in and out compared to the oems and they contour to the edges nicely).

if you are going for the blacked out look, then the amber really messes you up. otherwise, I guess it's personal taste.
