Default FYI on Ebay Smoked Turn Signals

Just a heads up on anyone who goes and gets the smoked turn signals + 4 pc sidemarkers, the rear sidemarkers that are sent in the kit are exactly as the same as the fronts.

However on the OEM originals the rears are much thinner than the original. So if you get this you should keep in mind the rears most likely will not fit.

Throw in the seller wont take the rear sidemarkers back.

Who wants to buy a set of front sidemarkers?

You're going to factor that into his feedback rating, right?

I noticed this too with ebay clears. I gave them away. Garbage. Fitment is way off OEM.

I've got smoked turns on mine...not sure if they are the same one...they seem like they'll break if I bump into anything but I like the way they look and they haven't melted/stopped working etc since I got them 6 months ago....

The screws are cheap as **** though. They almost strip on installation.

Smoked? Why not find a good set of clears and tint them as much as you want?

My ebay smoked turn signal housings seem fine to me. Fitment was oem but some of the screws were too short so I had to re-use the stock ones.
