Nothing drastic here, but I've been pondering on keeping the clear corners...

Should I stick with what I have? Or go black housing, amber corner?

Those headlights are IDENTICAL to my current ones, the amber corner being the only difference.

The light pattern does have hot spots, but nothing OMG TERRIBLE. I run 6000K 35W HIDs in my headlights, and glare is minimal. I see pretty damn good.

Talking about the amber corner gets really brought out when not clear :P

can you do black head lights with clear corners? then lightly tint the clear corner.

I HAVE black housing/clear corner headlights on the car. Not a fan of headlight tinting though.

I wish I would have just left mine alone & stuck with the oem headlights.

10k's + Amber markers + 3k fogs = secks.

I wouldn't say that, the black housing/clear corners complimented the CF/sliver scheme the GA had perfectly.

But why 10,000K? It only hurts your visibility. 6000K is the max, IMO. To boot, 35W bulbs in normal housings don't have that bad of glare at all.

10k is what I had at the time and it looked good I thought, but they were probably more like 8k, not as blue as other 10k's I've seen. I just hated how cheap the headlights were, didn't take long at all to start deteriorating lol. Plus the fitment sucked.

Stick with your current setup IMO..I think the Orange will clash horribly with the Green..Beside, you have the best looking headlights for the GA :lol2:

I vote you stick with what you got... when you first got the fender stripes I says noooooo :ph34r: but they grew on me and I now LOVE your GA. My buddies laugh at me because I used to hate them and your GA makes me want one really bad. Stick with the current look, the car's awesome.

stick with the clear. i like that look with the clears its way cleaner. i think those ambers would make the front end look more stock/tacky. i wouldn't like it. go clear
