Why does everybody call the stock OEM 94-95 taillight lens red/clear...they are actually called red/smoked; they are not clear.

Black IS ghetto! It reminds of the large number of black 190 2,3-16 and 300CE's with black taillights.

Entirely red taillights do have pink reverse lights (like on my former 190D).

Personally I like the clear/red taillights; it is not ricy, but it is BMW ripped off... (always look for a more expensive reason to recall something).

You can change to the 94-95 taillights by exchanging the lenses only, but personally I would change the bulb holding back plate as well (the newer taillights have amber indicator bulbs with different pins). No rewiring needed.
