    Normally I'd say OEM all the way but I think on this rare occassion aftermarket does look better.. makes the car look more modern I suppose

    Fronts maybe go OEM but definitely keep clear sides and M3 rears!

    I'd say stay clear all round can't imagine clear rears and amber fronts looking right

    On your colour car i would actually go with the oem (get new ones as they are more crystal amber/orange) and imho they do look the bollocks however i think clear oem rears would still look good with the amber fronts and sides.
    I think i have an old pic of my US M3 with the newer amber indicators and as soon as i get home, I'll post it for u to see.
