Default Front Marker Lights/fogs?

Have any of you put these on your ride? I saw them tonight for the first time. Hard to tell from the photo if I would like them. Opinions????

Without doing the headlights to match, then adding more chrome, I don't think that stand-alone they would look that nice. I have a set of similar clear ones, but I'm not a fan of the orange reflective part on these you show. I haven't installed the clears yet, as I'm debating tinting them some first.

That housing does not include fogs if I understand the add right.

You can buy clear or smoked assemblies and then use the bulbs that light amber (when off they have a dark chrome appearance) to remain legal. That way you don't see any amber when the lights are off. I have smoked on my '07 and clear on my wife's '06.

Ok thanks for the input. How much of a PIA is it to change them out? Now I am leaning more towards just all clear with the lit amber bulbs.

I purchased these ones from LMR just recently...can't beat that price. They also have the style you're looking at, also a smoked version. As far as the amber showing, I actually can't even see it when the lights aren't on. Plus, from factory, that whole samn piece is a giant amber lens...so this is much less regardless. Mine came with Amber bulbs.

as far as installation goes, maybe 15 - 20 minutes per side. You've gotta move the inner fender liners back so you have room for the lenses to come out but the wheels can stay on. If you've got a GT you'll need to remove the splash shield under the bumper too.

Very worth while mod for $35. it changes the look for sure.

edit: it would help if I posted the link huh?

I did notice that e-bay has many way cheaper! I found a place that had headlights, front & rear markers for 112.00 including shipping! I am waiting on talking to my inspection shop first. PA has some weird laws and I don't want to spend the $$ if I am going to get pulled over every time I drive it!

I purchased smoked for my '07 and clear for my wife's '06, along with an ample supply of bulbs on ebay about 4 years ago. About 3 weeks ago I had to replace 2 bad front marker bulbs on my wife's '06 for the 1st time.

Installing the markers requires either ramps or turning the wheels a few times to get access room.

I have the black ones, and love them. I personally like the small bit of orange reflector, bit of safety that full blackouts dont have but not huge in your face orange of factorys. Pile of pics in my other thread
