Do you like the stock turn lights or a black housing?

Here's what I got atm



I hear the yellow turn signals are an eye sore and the black housings can make a HUGE difference....what do you think about them? Would you replace them or keep them stock? These are the housings I'm looking to get, the light will still be yellow when its on as required by law, but the housing will look not yellow.

Black Mustang Turn Signal Lights w/ Amber Corners (05-09 All) - Free Shipping

which do you prefer?

On the '05 Redfire Mustang I had, I got the black housing turn signals and loved it. Much better than the amber/orange housing. Here's my before and after.

I think the contrast of these housings are best matched to the color of the car. For example, light colors may look good with blacked out side lighting colors, whereas a dark colored car would look best with the contrasting orange lenses.

it's all in the taste of the owner. And of course there's the legal aspect. We need to keep the police off of our shoulders. Anything that attracts their attention to me I try to avoid.

Agreed, I ordered the housing it should come tomorrow. I like my stock tails the way they are, especially with the sequential harness. Btw I did Not get the smoked turn signals I got the black ones (they have a clear lens with a black housing.)
