Ebay clear corners

The next thing I will be doing to my car is clear corners. I know I should get tails off ebay because you will get an error but what about the parking lights and sidemarkers? I could get them both off ebay for $20 or $110 from bav auto. Thats a big difference. I've also heard you can just spray paint the amber bulbs sliver so you don't get the egg yoke effect. Is this true cuz thats alot cheaper than getting those stealth bulbs?

for the price, you can't go wrong with ebay clear corners. Even if they do suck or break, thats still $20 compared to $110.

I'd say the gamble of saving $90 is worth losing $20 if they suck.

If they fit right, they're either clear or they're not. haha

Look at my avatar and you'll see the "ricey" type clears, which I regret buying . . I should have gotten the frosted type where you can't see right through the lens. I'll be changing them out soon. But at any rate, they're from eBay, and the fit is a little tighter- they needed a little persuasion to get them in, and the rubber seal is a little cheesy. But well worth the cost difference.

They also have the ones you are looking for, for like $25 they are not the ricie type the look stock but clear. I just got my clear side markers that look like they are good quality.
