Turn Lamps: OEM or smoked

Post by SVTRonDogg » Wed Feb 12, 2014 2:27 pm

Still back and forth as to which I prefer, any thoughts?

:naughty: OEM. I like color. Just like I always preferred the amber signal lenses in the 1999 Cobras and most cars that are imported that have individual turn and brake lamps.

I definitely prefer the amber corners on the New Edge Cobras.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the amber on the GT500, but the smoked blends too much with the paint scheme and makes the front too 'bland' for me. I think. :doh:

I went back to amber. Looks cleaner all around me thinks.

Yeah, too "washed out" looking smoked . Nice to have little something break it up a bit.

That was my thinking. The silver one silver stripes doesn't leave much contrast, so the grey lamps blended too much in with the rest, leaving it a bit too 'plain'.
