Ebay clear corners

Postby Guest » Thu Dec 09, 2004 10:05 pm

Anyone have these clear lights on their car? I'm replacing one of mine and figured I'd just go clear on all of them. Should I be looking for factory JDM instead? Are these crap?

They are pretty cheap, and don't look near as good. If you're gonna spend the money, might as well do JDM

They don't look nearly as cool (or of good quality) as the JDM ones. Gary has a few for sale usually.

I have a set on my car, I think they look nice. But yes, they are made real shitty and cheap. I have a thread on here of my car with them on.

For the corner lens I say get the JDM ones, I've had those others and they were junk and it just so happens thats where they ended up. As for the bumper lights I also have the ones you have a link to, they are also junk. If you tighten them down too much like I did you will crack the lens without much effort. Theres no support for the lens where the screw comes through it, poor design. I do have a link to better looking lens, more than likely made the same way though. check these out: http://www.matrixracing.com/BI3483Details.htm
and http://www.auto-motorsport.com/shopdisp ... Action=O+K

The second link has some really ugly ones, but I was looking more at the set that looks like stock lens only clear not orange.

Best way would be pics, but here it is in words:

JDM have the carbon fiber look, Fake do not
JDM has the white part extending to the grill, Fake only extends as far as USDM stock
JDM are "3-D", Fake are not.

Personally i think the ebay clear corners simply would ruin an alltrac, and lets everyone know you dont know the difference between real tuning and rice wanna be tuning. :|

You are not the first!
RIalltrac also experienced the same thing.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only moron that bought these, lol. I didn't even screw them in tight and it busted right through the glass.

ya i bought them, I just dont like the amber lens that come stock. The only flaw with thier design is where the screw goes through the lens, if it had a cylinder type support around that area it wouldnt break, but it doesnt so it does. Oh well.
