Need opinion on headlight.

Not sure how I want corner lights on my black e46. The smoked corners compliment the smoked corner but the clear corners compliment the car? Not sure? I will be putting in a clear turn signal bulb that flashes orange.


I messed up on the corners so I bought new ones and if I do decide to smoke them I will not be spraying them. Will use laminx like this

I will have silver rims on the car if that matters. Might wanna do black on one set but not sure.

I think the stock looks much better. More classy.

What do you think about the black grills? I was told they were classy but I prefer black. And I think I might go with clear

+1 for black grills, everyone's got em.

smoked out lights in general look cheep and a little rice, but yet again on a black car it could work. if you liked the smoked look then go for it! i think you can remove it if you don't like it, so whats the harm in trying

The smoked sides match the dark headlights better, but you loose that angry eye edge and it blends into the car more. Some people just hate the idea of smoked signal light, even if you take other steps to make the turn signals more noticeable.

So go with the clear? I like the dark corners because the angle eyes stand out more but not sure if it looks good with the car
