    As with most cars, changing orange indicators to clear or smoked clear lenses always improve the look of the car...

    But with a GTR-esq looking car, is stock better?


    M3 GTR with orange indicators


    M3 GTR replica with clear indicators


    I'm undecided...

    Whilst on the subject, this are E46 versions, but which would you rather have as a paint job?

    Brilliant Red


    Works Livery Red/White/Black


    Or this one (which i rather like)

    I think they look good clear but i think that orange ones might work one the coupe when its finished.

    The dilemma i have is that the car is red, and i was going to respray it in the same red, but when i saw that last one (with the white/blue/red) it made me unsure. We're not talking on standard BM's here, I mean if you had a GTR looking car.

    I've seen your project mate and I think the best route would be the 3 colour combination and CLEAR indicators and side repeaters

    I think that would be a bit too similar, wouldn't be the same if people were confusing the two.

    I'm more inclined towards the white with red and blue
