I personally like the contrast of ambers with techno, but it's nice to be able to go back and forth if you've got an extra set. You definitely have one of the most tastefully personalized cars on the forum.

Looking good!

I have a set of OE clears for the sedan plus a smoked Depo set. Used to swap them out every couple of months, but the ambers have been on for over 6 months now.

This makes me very happy. Clears over ambers 100%

Yeah, that's how I felt when I first picked up the clear set. Somehow those ambers snuck back onto the car.

You know, I normally prefer ambers, but the clears look great on your Techno, especially the tails. Some colors suit the clears more than others. I think clears look terrible on silver, for example.

Looking good, this color would look odd on another car but not this car (maybe because other cars don't come in this color, lol)

Glovebox looks a little bit saggy on the right side

What suspension are you on??

I'm pro clears on some colors and although it'd take more than a clears to "ruin" your TV, I actually prefer your car with ambers. Just my $.02. That said, it doesn't look bad, it's just the amber really "pops" on TV. Also, the GT wing looks great.

Now, on Cosmos? Clears are the only way to go.

Default Re: LTW clears and a drop.

Thanks for the compliments and constructive criticism so far guys. It's funny how the division is so 50/50 on what looks better. I find with the ambers the car has a period correct stock look, the clears give it this 90s modded look. It's amazing how much a couple pieces of plastic change it so drastically.
I saw a couple questions I'll answer here as well.
The alacantara boots are from cobywheel, knob and wheel are from tainik. I believe it's all the same as the oem stuff from the e46 so that's why it all matches well.
Yeah the glove box is sagging since I removed it to install the centre console. I want to fix it, but I'm afraid of ****ing it up more. The plastic clips everywhere are nice because the car is able to be put together like Lego, but it's like one time use only Lego haha.

I mean, the Euro E36 came with clears, so they are just as "period correct," if not more.

That is not an E46 steering wheel. The "alcantara" that tainik uses may be very similar to the one used on the E46, but that's an E36 steering wheel (3/98+ in US, 9/96+ in Canada). Funnily enough, I remember when I first got my tainik-wrapped wheel back in early 2008. I was one of the first guys here to run one, and I posted pictures all over the forums, on here and bf.c, and suddenly everyone started buying them. Funny how he has become the go-to-guy for these. He does great work, though. Mine is still in excellent shape, 8 years later.
