just saw yours also, I think they look better against a dark color but they also look good on the AW (I don't want to play favorites).

Now we've seen 'em on three colors so far. I think they look great on SG.

looks okay. i am with fifth that painted is much better. however, i can see how some owners might like the unique flavor that it brings to the front end of the car. much better than orange, but if the prices are similar (are they similar?), why not just go for color matched?

+1. And the other 1/2 are split between high schoolish socializing, false statements and poor humor or sarcasm.

Sorry Mantis honesty is indeed>nice.

Back on topic... OEM yellow reflectors are hideous, I think we all agree there. However, I think I rate these clears and body colored reflectors about the same in the looks department. No reflector (Euro bumper cover) is obviously best but the body colored ones look a bit odd because the uniformity of color sort of tells your brain there should be a smoothness to the shape and that flow gets interrupted. This effect is not there with the clears. They simply acknowledge the shape and color change together with a color much more subtle (esp. on Space Gray).

I've seen them in person on a AW and it looks pretty good. I think the reflectors would work great for light colored cars such as white and gray. Probably not so good on black or red. I personally prefer the painted reflectors though.

I love the idea of clear reflectors, but I don't like the dot pattern on these particular ones. I think that clear ones that were more plain would not draw your eyes to them so much. Therefore, they would blend in a little more on multiple colors.

Maybe if they were smoked they would look better.

They are hot! Defenitly uniquer than the painted ones. And they do indeed go wel with the headlights!Lovely choice mate.

Off topic : Mantis is one of the biggest haters on this forum... It's ok if you don't like it, but please, have some respect for the choice of others, instead of giving lame comments/emoticons.

Cheers mate

If the clears aren't your bag, the same seller does have smoked clears.
