i vote for the E-bay ones...just for the simple fact that the Ebay ones have a reflector and looks much better than the DIY clears

I prefer the reflector of the Ebay corners, but that'* just my taste. Either way you go will look better than stock.
It'* been a few months since I put mine in and I still look back at it when I walking away after parking.

how do you make you clear corners glow the same color as the inner parking lights?

It'll look fine on your car! They're on mine and since silver is a lighter color and my car is white look, maybe this will help you:

Even though I'm a girl, please take my advice Fuel... I did them myself before buying some and ended up reopening them and putting the orange reflector back in and ordering the ebay ones, bc it looks like sh*t (literally) done without the clear reflector! I can almost guarantee you won't like it done "homade"! But them you'll like it!

Handdrumman, I want to see a close up of yours if you did that to them... I'm curious how it looks! Sounds cool, but I already bought and installed ebay clears and my car is white and tinted corners might stick out unless I did like 1993 SLE and put eyebrows on it, but I hate those things personally! Maybe Fuel will go with tint if he sees and likes yours!

I'm starting to warm up to them (the eBay ones). I'll see how much they cost and see if I can buy them behind my parents back. Shhhhhhhh

BTW, Melissa I don't take gender in consideration when people give advice so don't worry, yours won't be chucked in the toilet faster than Mary-Kate'* lunch.

I'll do the clear corners. but if they suck I'll sell them at a meet.
