  1. #1 Default Changing Front Side Markers 
    Don't like my amber front side markers, going to order something new and wondered what people think would look better? Can get them either body color matched, smoked or clear. I'm thinking about going with body color. Here they are in black.



    Or do you think clear would look better to blend into headlights?


    Already got rid of rear by changing to Euro bumper

    I don't think you can go wrong either way really. I think the black would go better with the theme of the car though. I've got clear on my car. That was the first thing to go. Hate the amber markers.

    Color matched
    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.

    def body color

    you want them to blend in and dissapear as much as possible, its not like its a nice design touch that you want people to notice

    Nothing else is blacked out on the car... Should remain body color

    if they are anything like my car they are a real pitb to remove, hopefully you can reach yours from behind, it makes a life a lot easier

    Will probably bring to Phil, I heard they are a pitb to remove but Phil was able to pop them out pretty easily when he took off my front bumper to put lip on.

    $190? I'd check with Phil to make sure but I'm pretty sure he can just respray the stock ones to match. And I'm sure Phil can get them on and off no problem.

    absolutely, he did mine for me, he was doing other things as well, not sure what he would charge for just doing the markers

    Thought about that but that would probably require 2 trips to him. Just ordered them and now will be easy to just bring them to him and get done quick. Wish wheel decision would be this easy, It's funny that looking at the picture of my wheels in this thread they look good to me and it seems out of the ones people are suggesting the ones I like best are similar to what I have. Might just keep what I have and put that money towards new V10 clutch when needed

    i really like the 5 spoke ones that were posted yesterday, but other than that i havent seen anything that would convince me to drop 6k on a set

    And they have proven to be quite durable, almost 3 years of driving and have hit some good size pot holes and they are still perfect.
    Oh and super easy to clean
