No offense but your tailights are still "cheesy orange", lol. Get some silver high temp paint and coat your bulb so it doesnt look like an egg yolk in there. I've done it and it is one of the most self satisfactory jobs ever. Once they are silver no one will notice, but the orange ruins the look. All you need is a little piece of cardboard with some X's cut in it to put the bulbs in and then one light coat and everything will look awesome.

No offense taken, I actually bought a set of the silver bulbs but I have not dropped them in yet.

I am way to lazy to paint them myself

I Think the orange bulbs look nicer than the silver bulbs...gives it more charactor...looks factory good. Not like an over velus person who whited everything out on his car like his interior bulbs and trunk lights & CEL.
