JDM side markers

One of the many mods I've been kinda putting off for a while is installing jdm side markers. I know I have one amber one laying around but not sure if I have 2..

So the question is what do y'all think will look better on a silver prelude.. Amber markers or clear ones? I can't decide.. I'll get the real jdm amber/clears either way not some junk off ebay

Re: JDM side markers

Personally, I like the clear on lighter color vehicles. but it all comes down to personal preference. I think uniformity is huge.

Re: JDM side markers

I agree, go clear for a silver car. Amber looks good on black or red cars.

Re: JDM side markers

I actually like the ambers on a light colored car. I bought my Lude with clear sidemarkers and they just seemed dull after a while so I switched to amber and it looks so much better. But it really just comes down to whether you want the subtle look of clears or the contrast of ambers. Cant really go wrong either way. Lol

Re: JDM side markers

Does anyone have pics of the clear ones on a silver lude?

I'm keeping my other markers that are in the bumper..and they are amber.. If I decide to get clear I'll change them too

Idk...I like them both and I'm sure they'll look good either way..but it's a hard choice


I'm kinda leaning towards amber because they're cheaper and it should look pretty good

Re: JDM side markers

I think the side markers should match your other signal lights. If you have amber signals and clear side markers its gonna look weird.

Re: JDM side markers

^yeah I agree.. I'm gonna keep them the same color

Probably just gonna get amber ones so I don't have to change the ones on the bumper

Does any have a pic of a lude with jdm clear side markers?

Re: JDM side markers

Amber is the way to go, looks more oem. I think clear ones look rice but that's just me. Oh and they look wayyyy better if you shave the bumper ones.

Re: JDM side markers

Hells yeah vanilla! That looks good

Guess I'll get one more amber jdm marker instead of getting the clear jdm ones because that looks pretty good. I still haven't found a pic of a prelude with jdm clear markers on it...just s2000 blinkers..but I think I'll be more happy with the amber ones

Thanks fellers

Re: JDM side markers

I definitely think clear on a silver lude with the clear bulbs that flash amber, just like mine

Re: JDM side markers

I say amber...Or smoked/tinted. I think the clear setup is a bit over played. For your front bumper USDM side markers, I say use the OEM red 4th Gen Prelude side markers. Not that common, and red + amber is cool. Nice OEM look.

Re: JDM side markers

Get a JDM bumper regardless. These ludes who have JDM and USDM side markers look retarded.

Re: JDM side markers

I had no clue what you guys were talking about until you posted the pictures. I thought it was the marker on the front bumper... Hmmm... Now I'm considering it for my Pearl White Prelude, but I kind of like the clean flush look.
