The orange sidemarkers in the bumper do not have any bulbs and dont act as turning signals. They are just reflectors, unless you are talking about the headlights. If its the headlights I have no answer for you.

Where'd you get the clear corners? That needs to be the first mod to our new M3... those yellow things look really ugly on a white car!!

That all depends really. Are you going to do anything else black, like grills or gills? If so then go smoked because it will go well with the a black out theme.

If not then both will look good.

Yeah I know, sorry. Thought the OP got the answer they were looking for and the thread was finished. Since it was about sidemarkers I went for it.

My bad
