i am thinking of getting a pair of front clear turn signals for my 94 E420. i've seen some on sale on ebay. my questions are

1) is there a brand that's better than the rest? i mean, these clear turn signals are after market parts, right? does someone make better clear signals than others? if so, which brand do you recommend?

2) how difficult would it be to install? any hints that people want to advise?

thanks

they are extremely easy to install.
just push the protruding tab under the hood and they pop right out.
however, the set i purchased off of e-bay had a 2 prong connector which made the running lights useless. i stole the connectors off my old ones ( with adding a fat o-ring on both of the old sockets ) and they work fine. i think they look even better with euro headlights though.
if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.
good luck,
adam

Most of the one sold at Ebay are not OEM, they look like kids installed on their low rider with wheels outside the fender. The later model OEM lights has a orange/yellow stripe on the side. They only cost $56.00 each at most dealer.

I bought my from www.gapa.com I prefer the ones without the orange reflector strip. I think the all clear ones, look great on the car.

Mine were $58.00 including the tax and shipping, but if you dont live in california, the tax wont necessarily be there so you save some extra money.

I put in orange bulbs too. which look great when the turn signal is on and at night they look factory.

The ones I got are by a brand called depo. probably made in taiwan, but they look good, and seem to be no worse in quality than the bosch ones.

I have seen others at a placed called importvision.com as well who sell them in smoke color too I believe but they are $99 a pair I think there.

They also sell clear, all red, all smoke, red/clear and smoke/red I believe for the taillights.

In anycase, I think the all clear front indicators look great on the car.

Now all I want is the 94-95 smoke/red taillights on the car.

OR the all red ones might look cool too but reversing with red lights isn't that easy.

Alon

ohh and one last note, I used the factory blub holder/wiring harness as the ones that come with it are two pronged and have no wire for the parking ligts, only the turn signals.

But they fit fine, no o-rings needed on my ones.
