I like the completely clear ones, and they are cheaper. But dont get the super cheap ones or else the spring is made out of plastic. But the oem ones are the smokey clear.

I bought mine from the local Porsche dealership when I upgraded to litronics, and thought they looked a little too dark (too smoked), I even asked the parts guy if they were the correct ones. However once on they seemed to match the rest of the headlight.

the all clear ones look cheap as hell, and look like they belong on a civic in my opinion.

but then again i dont like clear or smoked, so i colormatched mine and took the bulbs out.

diff dealers diff ripoff.

jsut when i was getting a replacement part for my conv top, i called sunset and they said 42 and then i went to my local dealer, 84. go figure...
so i needed to fix it fast, so i bought one from my local dealer, installed it, and ordered one from sunset, and then it arrived it returned it to my local dealer for full refund (not bad)

but yea, they will jack up the price for no reason.
funny thing is that i told the guy at sunset what i was doing, and he just laughed and said "gotta do what you gotta do, glad to have you back tho"
