Okay, I'm stuck at a merger. So, I went to autozone, with the help of all the users in the past thread, and came to this conclusion, I don't enjoy these new tail lights. They just completely reduce the quality 'look' of the car.

Am I right or wrong? Which one looks better to you guys?

Try to get the dark amber Euro turn signal lenses if you can.

Amber is much better looking than ricer clear, IMHO.

I would think that if you were going to go with clear turn signals, a black car would be the one to do it with. I don't think they would look as good on my Light Ivory coupe, for example.

I also think they would look better on a car with a lot of chrome (esp.wheels, etc). I have seen them on some black W126 coupes that looked great. Harder to pull off on the W123 with standard bundts.

After seeing your pictures, I think the modern look of the clear lenses clashes with the classic lines and curves of the W123. It looks like they might be more at home on a supped-up Civic. Stick with amber, IMHO.

I have a black one and once contemplated the clear blinkers; then installed euro lights with the darker orange blinkers and am well pleased with it.

Clear or "smoked" front bliners or tail lights, I don't like them now. To me that is more for the Spoiler Boyz and the 2fast2furious crowd

I agree. I took them off this afternoon, and well, feel as though I've made a good decision.
