Amber indicators.. The new clear

Anyone else feel Evo 5's and 6's look fresher with orange indicators up front? Or is it just me?

It's almost like when the RS scene went back to orange, to me it looks much fresher and nicer than clear.

Does anyone know the official info on when evos started getting clears as stock? I've seen a few 6's with them, my 6 has clears that I'd like to replace with a mint polished up set of orange ones.

Something about clear that looks cheap to me. Strange when I used to want to go clear on my cars.

Or am I getting old?

The Evo VI was the first Evo to come with clear lights as standard mate.

Some have orange so I presume it was the late 98 early 99 models.

I totally disagree, cant see how a tangoed front end looks more fresh than a clear set. I'm 32 and think i'm starting t get old fashioned. You must be 62

It's an optical illusion.. the wheels are the same it's just the orange lights transform the whole look of the car
