Wow, those are pretty expensive, $64.99 for the lights, and then a huge $19.99 to ship those lights, which are plastic and I would assume don't weight much at all. Just a way for them to get a few extra bux out of you. Shipping may cost $5-6 then the rest is in pocket profit.....

Some will do that purposely. They can sell you crap and offer a full refund if you don't like the quality. Of course, shipping charges are non-refundable. So they can do this MANY times with pure garbage and STILL make a profit with just the markup on the shipping costs.

You have to REALLY be on your toes buying off of Ebay. There are some good sellers there, but the sharks are pretty thick in those waters.

I think eBay is great for those parts that are hard to find. And you can get deals on high dollar parts.Now to get to the question in hand , The clear fr corners are a great mod.I would use slyvania sliver star lite blubs if you install the clear corners. They do not put off a yellow cast in the len.But are a bright amber when they R turn on.Here's a pis with clears and the silver stars blubs
