I think he means the orange lenses on the side of each headlight, no the bulbs.

No one is making them currently. It sucks because, I agree that it would look a lot better with clear lenses there.

If anyone knows of a company we could hound mercilessly for some of these let us know.

I'd call 'em every damn day.

At this point in the game, being picky is not an option. If APC makes these, then I will buy from them. Anyone who supports our cars aftermarket I will suppport. There's not too many companies that are right now.

I talked to an APC rep (sales manager) 2 weeks ago about my clear side markers that are cracking, and if I could get them replaced ..... he said they are discontinued because they got fined like thousands of dollars because side markers have to be a reflective amber .....

Honestly they guy could really car less, he was just there trying to sell a product, and taled to me and my bud about problems, but didn't really want to help us fix them ....... errrrrr makes me want to buy more stuff from these guys ..... NOT

Well if you want to contact them about the RL:

It is my understanding that the color of the lens can be clear so long as the bulb is amber. Just like our front turn signals.

yes the light needs to be amber, but by law you need to have relfective amber on the front corner or the car. thats why in the past when you bought clear corners they also had like 1.5" x 1.5" extra amber reflective squares that you were "suposed" to put on your car also so it would be legal ( like anyone did)

A couple weeks ago I was at a performance car parts show, both Sinister Redlines and I talked to several manufactures of Headlights, tail lights and markers ..... about clear corners, HID conversion kits and tail lights for both the SRT and Red Line. We got the same thing from all of them about the clear side markers .... APC was the only one that had been making them out of those companies, and now doesn't make them any more because they had been fined many thousands of dollars for doing it. So to relpace mine again I'll need to find some old stock, or just go back to the stock amber ones.

I guess the government is really cracking down on alot of auto safty and lighting laws.

Another one that they are cracking down on according to the PIAA rep. is HID conversion kits, If you have noticed they don't offer HID conversion kits for cars that didn't come with them anymore ;) He also told us that starting like in September (or somewhere arount there) if you get caught with an HID conversion kit in your car you'll get fined, and they will also fine the manufacturer of the kit also..... I guess the big stink is that HID's are sensitive to the angle of the car. Most all stock HID kits in cars have leveling syatems for the lights so say you put three people in the back seat the lights can be readjusted so they don't blast people in the eyes.

Those cars with the kits are so annoying, they are so bright and blinding when they aren't adjusted right. It seems no one adjusts them right either. Is that JUST for looks, or do people really need off-road quality lighting? I can see it if you live in the middle of the country and have lotsa deer and 'varmints' on the road at night, but in town? Drive me nuts when they ride my ass, thank god the wing blocks alot of it out now.
