Default where to buy clear bumper lights?

96 LS400

could someone recommend the best place to get the clear bumper lights for cheap, yet good quality?

cheapest I have seen is on $35/set on ebay like this one, but I have no clue if they are good quality.

wouldn't be surprised though, if every set of them available in America at any retailer came from the same factory in China that made the ones linked to above!

what you're looking for are turn signals, not bumper lights (which were much smalller, and only found on '98-00 cars)

primary source is ebay. only 2 real options, diamond cut or fluted, both generic.

it's been discussed to death, next time please search.

it's a purely aesthetic decision, buy whatever suits your fancy. the crystal/diamond cut tend to better match aftermarket clear headlight housings.

OEM lenses are the better quality unless you can get the clear JDM/made in Japan versions. The look of the China mamde clear ones are nice at a distance but fail up close. These are 50% of what the OEM ones are in terms of build quality. The ones I would like are the JDM amber versions. (If you have some PM me.)
