I was trying to chose between the two also, I decided to go with the smoked when I'm ready because it looks more mean. The clear looked clean and goes better with chrome wheels. I'd buy them from BOI, UPR, Arts Perf. etc. before i bought from 50resto though, unless u want the Black Beauties then I think 50resto is the only one that sells them. I hope the HIDs look good in the smoked. Only one way to find out
