CD silver ZX3 Smoked or clear corners?

Just looking for some feedback on which side marker corner lights to put? Clear or smoked. My car is Cd silver with Gunmetal w/polished lip Slipstreams featuring a two tone silver with black down the roof and hood. Any feedback appreciated.

get clear and then if you don't like it get some VHT niteshades and smoke 'em. I was going to smoke mine and put on too much and now they're black. I don't like 'em black esp. on a white car...I wanted to get new orange one's and then paint them white to match my car...but leave like a little hole in the middle where it's orange so light can shine through.

Silverstar turn signal bulbs, the side markers I left stock at night they dont shine bright but are visable and have a deep deep orange almast red color to them. Havent gottin in trouble and I drive around cops every day, lights on and off.

Blacking out my head lights when I get of work tonight, really hoping that adds to the look I am going after.

HAHA ohhh no not black out the covers... I am talking about I took them apart and am painting the insides black other then the silver around the turn bulb and behind the headlight. Since they dont yet make aftermarket headlight for the 05 I am doing it custom like some other have.

Here is an idea of what it will look like..... Thanks to James on FocusRush haha hope you dont mind me using your car!

Wow, those blacked out headlights look really nice. I was never a fan of the 05 front end, honestly, but that make it look really nice. Smoking those signals would really complete the look. Great work!
