Yeah....I was torn too. I ended up going with the clear for what it's worth. I also have the clear side markers coming....should be here soon!

But those 550s are definitely more unique!

The all-red tail lamps looked too old fashioned for me. So I bought the red and clears and never thought about it again. My goal in replacing them was to update the look of the car, not make it look older, so I made my choice based on that factor alone.

I went with the all read 550s because the clear/red are too common, and to me the clear/red looks too dated now because of the new 987/997. They have that red rim around the clears.

Moostang (what does that mean anyway, "Moostang?"), what color is your car? I think the 550 lights would only look good on either black or red cars (possibly silver).
