ugly corner lenses

anyone have any other alternatives to these ugly corner lenses?... its either the clear corner that just looks like a cheap chrome mess, or this smoked version thats tinted and just doesnt match anything. both seem to look hideous on my car. i attempted to bake the clear/chromes but appearantly its glued. i was going to open it up and spray the chrome with 'shadow chrome', but i guess thats not happening. both corners are DEPO, is there any other brands? i cant seem to find any. ive searched.

you could do chrome clears with silver trim, instead of the clears with black...

just sayin.

OEM clear on facelift. It will look like the one in the first pic but the quality will be a lot better, not to mention no condensation issues. ECS now has it with black trim
