Not exactly sure what to call these, so I didn’t really no what to search for.

Does anyone make a clear reflector for this, or am I doomed to the yellowish orange color forever? Also is it even legal to make it clear, I’m pretty sure I have seen some cars like this but that doesn’t mean it is legal.

Any help to a headlight modding n00b would be appreciated.

PS. This is what the alphabet would like if Q and R were removed.

PSS. Sorry if this has been asked before, I really didn’t know what to search for.

Those are the corner lights..headlights known as “clear corners..is what you’re looking for..they’re not illegal..but i think you have to have a oranger bulb..which you can buy ..ones that are silver that glow orange..so you have no orange tint..but i haven’t seen any yet..depending on what color your charger is..when they do come out..you’re gonna have to decide..clear corners or smoke..clear will make them look like altezza tails(more than likely)..and smoked wil make it look like the rest of the headlight(more than likely)..you should look on ebay at different vehicle to get an idea..i’ll post the difference on a pair for a 5-series in a second..i know i put some on a dark green 528I..and they looked sooo clean and sooo sweet..way better than stock..HOPE THAT HELPS A LITTLE..

From what I’ve heard, yes. I’m going to give it a shot in a month or so.

With my previous vehicle we had members of the board use clear corners services and had nothing but positive things to say.

Just a suggestion.

ElCobra, did you ever end up attempting to tint you corner lenses?

Taking them off is very easy. Just pull towards the corners of the corner lights and the whole side assy pops right off. It’s very easy to remove and replace. I was going to do an extra amber light in there so it blinks but I found out how tight that single bulb is in there. the other thread with the blinker MOD that was posted here lately seems to have answered that though.

Actually, anything other than an orange/amber bulb AND an orange/amber reflector at the front corner markers is illegal in every province/territory in Canada. Since the SAE (society of automotive engineers, which is American I think) designed motor vehicles that way, I would bet it is a federal safety law Stateside too. The amber differentiates the front of a vehicle from the rear when viewed form the sides in dim light etc etc.. That is why every moving motor vehicle comes from it’s designated factory with amber as close as practical to the front corner and red as close as practical to the rear corners. Check your local traffic laws before you consider moding those lenses. That way you won’t be surprised to get a visit from your local law enforcement types.
