I did have red in my corners and red in the center but switched after being pulled over by Ottawa county lol! I have silver amber bulbs in the center and in clear in the corners! I'll get pics for you ASAP. I bought the silver bulbs at Meijer for $10! They blend in with the backgroud of your headlamp in the day time![/b]
But i know there must be silvers/chromes out there that don't restrict the amber light ouput as much. But are still unseen in daylight. I want the whole light set appearance clear as clear during the day.
Yeah that'* what my center bulbs are... here I'll try to get some good pics real quick!Okay here we are.......
This is the center silver amber bulbs I was talking about... they blend in awesome!!!


the only reason the bulbs look red/orange is bc of the flash from my camera

Another pic I just found in the day light lol... you can see the silver bulb but it'* not a big orange globe !

And if he touches my car in an attempt to do so, I'll take picture of his hands and post them in here when I'm through with them!!! He knows better.... he already suggested that for my car a while back and I flipped out! My car is pretty just the way it is... my headlamps are slightly more narrow than your year also so they'd look even more cheesy than they do to begin with... but no offense really if you liek them lol!

Thanks for the look-see. Awesome is the word. That'* exactly how I want my line-up to look. It looks extra good on your white SE !!

BTW, what is that lowbeam with the metallic looking housing?

Are you talking about the bulb itself?! If so I bought the car with those in it already but if you like tomorrow when/if I clean my car I can pull one out and see if it says a brand on it or something! If you like the look so much go order some corners.. I want to see pics ASAP though for sure!!! Before and after pics are a must!

for example mine:

I really think it goes from cheesy orange spoted headlights to sparkly clear... until the centers are lit up... but even then it'* a deep orange almost, compared to the previous center bulbs!

you have to have the silver centers because they don't reflect the amber color all over the inside of the head lamp!!! Everything is crystal clear until night time!

See and you wasted time putting on "eyebrows"... nice one... corners should have come first... and only!
