    If it was me I'd just go for a pair of clear indicators, it's a subtle change but they look a lot better than the orange ones. The ones in the ebay link look a little on the tacky side to me

    i don't think they look that bad to be honest, they are just projector style which is the way headlight are going so it can't be too bad. each to their own at the end of the day

    IMO they look a bit chavvy kind of like putting in lexus style lights in the rear but then each to his own-I much prefer the clear M3 style indicators

    Personally I hate those, I think they ruin the front of the E36. OEM indicators are much better, get on eBay. I got mine for £15 on eBay last year.

    I had some of these when i brought my car and i must admit they do look a bit tacky, very chavy, i changed them striaght away and brought black smoked ones, but considering going for clear m3 ones as stk has said i think there nice and subtle.
