Side marker suggestions

I am looking at possible getting new side markers and was wondering what any opinions would be for my car? Should I get the clear ones or the blacked out ones?

Here is a pic of my car:

Well you dont have these listed but I guess they would be the clear type but they have an illusion of being blacked out. (as oppsoed to the clear/white reflector looking side markers)


They have a clear lense but the inside is blacked out (would have to buy orange replacement bulbs)



When they are on the car they almost always look blacked out. I'm a fan of them.
Here is a shot of them on my car, more in my gallery if you want other angles.


These are sold all over ebay, around $20. I suggest sealing them a little better when you get them, prone to fogging but its easily fixed. I think they would look good on your car as well.

Clear w/ the chrome would look good matching your chrome headlights and grille surround.

I just ordered my self blacked out side markers for my black on black zx3. I thought about the clear ones but the black ones struck me in the heart so I'd say go black!!

Thanks for everyone's feedback. I think I'm going to end up going with the clear chrome ones. Worst case scenario I don't like them and get the black ones. Then if I get bored with one I can switch them out for the other set lol.
