Default Clear corners/side signals/bumper lights

i searched on this, and read a ton of threads, but none of them really had a direct answer. I'd like to know the best site for ordering clear lights for my car. is procarparts.com reliable? do the lights fit properly and look good? any help on these at all would be appreciated. I want crystal clear (euro style i guess is what its called) so it matches the headlights of my 00 2.5 rs.....thanks guys

ive looked on ebay, but that doesn't help me figure out if it fits correctly or anything like that. Are clear corners legal in most states?

What states do you have in mind? Here's California Vehicle Code, Section 25100 for example:

****
Clearance and Side-Marker Lamps

25100. (a) Except as provided in subdivisions (b) and (d), every vehicle 80 inches or more in overall width shall be equipped during darkness as follows:

(1) At least one amber clearance lamp on each side mounted on a forward-facing portion of the vehicle and visible from the front ....

(2) At least one amber side-marker lamp on each side near the front ...

(3)...(4)

(5) Combination clearance and side-marker lamps mounted as side-marker lamps and meeting the visibility requirements for both types of lamps may be used in lieu of required individual clearance or side-marker lamps.
****

For the GC/GF/GM models, imho that means even if the corners are clear in color, they have to light up amber.

#5 applies to the GD/GG models afaik.

autozone or advance auto parts.

don't get LED as it will cause your ecu think a bulb is out- LEDs have much lower resistance and your blinkers will go JDM fast.
