I posted this on Facebook as well, but just wanting some more opinions. I'm trying to match my reverse lights better with the tail lights. The Depo reverse lights come as either a chrome housing with clear lens or chrome housing with a smoke lens. My TYC tail lights are a black housing with clear lens. So which look better to you guys?



And here are the rear end lights on with the smoke lens reverse lights installed:

I'll post more pics tonight with one of each reverse light installed for a better comparison.

Because you have smoked tail lights obviously the smoked reverse light look the best.

Sounds like the smoked lens is a clear winner like it was on Facebook. I'll still try to get pictures with one of each style light installed for a better comparison.

Smoked refers to the lens being darker, which on the tail lights it's a clear lens.

I'm happy I bought the smoked reverse lights and will continue to visually improve the 3G since there's not much more I can do performance-wise. I posted the clear reverse lights for sale on Facebook thinking they'd be up for a bit before I get bites but they sold in under 15 minutes! Guess I won't be getting those pictures for comparison after all!

would you happen to know where I can find smoked front directionals for 03-05 bumper?
Or maybe if the 00-02 ones on ebay can be modded to fit before I shell out the cash?

The 00-02 are a completely different shape and won't fit. I haven't been able to find the Depo 03-05 front corner housings that I have for sale anymore. They may be discontinued.

So I'm gonna be replacing my cracked front bumper soon and will use it to see if it can be retrofitted for the 00-02 front corner markers. I'll get a cheap marker from a junk yard to play around with and I bet I can figure it out somehow. Hopefully, whatever mod is needed to the 03-05 bumper wont make it unusable with 03-05 markers, in case I wanted to switch back to stock.
