Go with lightly smoked. Then black grill as well. Adds an aggressive look. Silver will pull it off really great if you have a whole theme going on. Black roof and all. I used to have clears. Once I got black grill smoked corners made it flow really good together. then again... its orient blue. Look around for pix of silver cars with smoked lens.

I actually prefer clear markers on silver, but I would change the globes out to shadow chromes to get rid of the egg yolk look.

Also I'd recommend a 15-17% window tint. 20% is just a bit too light for me. I've got 17% at the moment and I find that a bit light on some days.

I did clears...but I am wishing I did light smoke now all around. I have hyperblack rims and black kidney grills already. Matched with the black bumper trim and tint...we've now got a good theme of silver and black going.

I would vote for smoked.

So you have clears on the car already? I'd get smoked corners then depending on what look you want you can change them up every once in a while.

Anyone recommend a place to get lightly smoked corners with a reputable brand for better fitment and a good price? I bought some off fleebay and they were a waste of money. :thumbdwn: Good fitment with the exception that it was not able to hold in the bulb :facepalm:
