Clear headlights

So I want to upgrade my headlights from OEM to some of the clear ones, like the ones on this link.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Parts-Accessories_Car-Truck-Parts-Accessories__Porsche-Boxster-Headlight-Assembly-w-Clear-Turn-Signal_W0QQitemZ8065638130QQddnZPartsQ20Q26Q20Acce ssoriesQQadnZCarQ20Q26Q20TruckQ20PartsQ20Q26Q20Acc essoriesQQddiZ2811QQadiZ2865QQcmdZViewItem?_trksid =p3756.m20.l1116

My question is- Is there a website that sells the little triangle trim piece that sits on the corner of the headlights? I see it on all the modded cars but I dont know where they are getting them. I found one website that sells them but they wont ship to my address. Or, do people just pull the amber lens out from them? If they just remove the amber themselves does anyone have a link on how to do it? I was trying to search all this myself but I have limited time on the computer (in Iraq) and a lot of the stuff I am trying to look up gets blocked do to a government filter.

The triangular piece is a Porsche part. You'll need to get them from a Porsche dealer. They're about $30 each. I got mine from Suncoast Porsche.

You can't pull the amber out of them, so you buy clear ones.

I bought used headlights from a wrecked 996 and they came with them.

If your going to spend the money for new clear headlights you should probably think about spending a bit more and getting litronics, its worth the money.

I have thought about putting them in my box, since I have them on my other car and they are a very nice addition. I just dont know if I want to throw another $1500 on just headlights haha

When you do get the aftermarket kit, you definitely must go with color temps around or under 5000k.
