Honestly, I would say niether. Just go with some e-bay, or even home made, clear corners.

The body color changes the shape of the lights too much, and the dark tint just don't look right to me....

I kinda like the look of the body color look but good luck finding some "tint" or see through body color paint for the corners.

or do the Clear corners

Yeah, without the blacked up headlights, the tinted corners stick out like a sore thumb. And I would be nervous having my turn signal so covered up, lots of safety and insurance issues there.

I would go clear.
