I'm almost afraid to ask this...

Does anyone make clear turn lenses to replace the amber ones on the car now?

There's too much flaming going on for those who simply want to mod there Porsche for watever reason.
This is a car enthusiasts forum and I always thought modifications was a form a celebration, not degradation.
Who cares if it is a huge waste of money or offers no increase in performance? If the owner enjoys it, that is reason enough.

Good point, I hadn't thought of that!

Kidding of course. Since we are kind of on the subject, I pulled my front bumper, am having it dipped to strip it, then having the holes welded closed. I think that getting rid of the rubber bumper pads and going with clear lenses will give it a cool look.

Someday it'll be done & I'll post pics.

Yeh, I really like them myself.

Depends on the color of the car though.

Very nice look.
However, anyone else think $160 for front turn signals and $85 for side lenses is a little expensive?
15 HP is not sufficent for that dough.

I quess I'm just too cheap!

The hours your Porsche spends parked, you don't get those back.

It's true, it's a massive rip-off but what can I say, I guess I am vain that way. I got both the clear turn signal lenses and the side marker lenses. Side marker lenses gonna be a ***** to install cause you got to use a heat gun to melt the glue off to get the yellow lens off.

Oh I hear you. As I am trying to get my car from Zero to Hero without draining my bank account, I am forced to weigh where I soend my cash. The thing that really sucks is you almost have to go all the way and by both if you are going to do it at all.

I am getting the bumper stripped for free though
