I do not mind the look of the amber on the fronts, but do not like the amber in the rear.

Ha, I do not remember that, but I'm glad that it all worked out.

Didn't some Euro E36s come with amber? For example:

Default Re: LTW clears and a drop.

for me,

post '95 the 'clears' seem sharper...so early e36s, yes... and some prefer the look based on the era of the car.

but when i see clears on e30s, .... no..althoguht i dont mind the full reds on the e30 rears [but only on the M]

Do you want to sell your OE Clears?

Your car always looks great. Loving the new look with the wing.

I'm a fan of the ambers, especially on TV, but get the need to change things up every once in a while.

Default Re: LTW clears and a drop.

White indicators are listed as From July '93.

For years I ran the clears on my 328i, as bought. In 2011 I switched to ambers and couldn't believe I waited that long.



When I got my M3 in 2013, This Sunday exactly 3 years ago, it camw with clears. On AW it looks even worse, no contast at all



I hijacked them off the 328i the next day, which a few months later, got ambers again.

Default Re: LTW clears and a drop.

^ excellent examples of how amber can add interest. IMO clears look good on modified e36s that have other points of interest. Sometimes clears can give these cars the same washed out effect as painted moldings. Some contrast is good.
