For Sale: Clear Tails and side markers

I've got some clear tailights and side markers for sale. I have pics of them on my home PC that I will post up later. They are brand new. The side markers are OEM, and the tails were bought from Suncoast. I'm looking for best offers.

I'll buy your clear tail lights if the price is right. You name the price though. If you're looking for best offers, I think Ebay is the place to go so you can make as much as possible.

Call me on my cell if you like: 832-474-7381

I can pay you through Paypal if you like.

I am curious, why do a lot of the forum members change to the clear side markers?

Also, isn't this illegal acording to DMV??

IMHO replacing with clears adds an "updated" look to a car, as recent trends among automakers have been away from using amber. As you know, the 987 comes with amber side-markers in the States, and I replaced mine with clears. Much "cleaner" look, since the side-markers were the only ambers on the car.

Most DMV regulations are the same as in Cali, where when replacing with clears, the bulbs must still give off an amber light. Occasionally, out here in Cali, you'll see people who go with clears and also a "white"/non-amber bulbs as their flashing turn indicator. This situation is the one that's illegal. An aftermarket option for this scenario is available where the orange bulb is coated with a silver substance, so it doesn't show as amber through the clear until it's blinking.
