Well, it would help to know the year and model too.

I'm 18 with no job, just like you.

But I fiind ways. (no not really I had savings)

I got custom rims, 16" because they're just fine.

I painted my calipers and drums red.

Going to clear my corners, tint the windows.

Hey you guys, meet my twin!!!!

Mike, that was ONE person'* suggestion. Much the same as if I told you to buy peanut butter from Jif. That doesn't mean I think Skippy sucks, it just means I prefer Jif.

A suggestion to buy from INTENSE doesn't mean ZZP sucks. Please quit taking it personally.
I just think it'* BS when someone ONLY mentions one vendor when they are well aware of other/and possibly ceaper routes.
I think it'* BS just like how on CGP people ONLY mention ZZP. I just think this forum should be better than that in this regard.

Pat mentioned Intense because he prefers them. Likewise I'm not going to mention vendors I haven't bought anything from just to mention them for "fairness" sake and it would be foolish to expect otherwise. Other will chime in on thier preferred venders. Instead of complaining whenever someone mentioned a preferred vender, mention ones you like.

For the record I've bought from ZZP and have not had a problem with them. I'd buy from them again if I find a need for something they sell.

When you clear the corners, the amber plastic piece pops right out. I suppose you could reinsert it if you wanted to go back to the stock look. You'll need to change your bulbs from clear to amber colored. Many people here including myself use bulbs from Silverstar (I forget the model off the top of my head) as replacements.

How should I know or care? Why should you care? As Wren said, stop taking this personally. You can't force Pat or anyone else to reccomend a vendor they're not comfortable with.

This is not the topic at hand. The nice guy is asking for advice on what is stupid or what'* great for his Bonne, not whether ZZP or INTENSE is better. Cool?

Hey po2xyeLz, if you have a 92-95 or a 96-99, you can get clear corners from eBay if you wanted, I wouldn't recommend clearing it yourself wiht a 92-99 model but a 00+, you can clear it yourself.

yes the amber part literally pops out, there is no cutting or anything like that..

when you clear the corners buy amber bulbs and lightly mist them with silver paint so they 'look' silver or you can buy silverstar turnsignal bulbs that appear clear then light up amber
