I have clears w/ orange bulbs, I think it looks good. That's how the euro e36's have them if you care...many on this board have clears w/ orange bulbs.

Hi guys,

I was driving my 325i tonight and I noticed this car speeding up catching up to me. He followed me a bit and then when I made a right turn, the cop pulled me over. I stopped, turn on the dome lights, shut off the engine, and put my hands on the steering wheel as he walked up.

Cop: "How're we doin tonight?"
Me: "Hi officer"
Cops: Looks at my car... then "You know, those clear tail lights that you have, you need to change the clear bulb to amber color bulbs because it blinds the hell out of whoever's behind you."
Me: Nodding my head "Yes yes.. I'll get it changed"
Cop: "Alright, have a good night."
Me: "Thanks thanks"

I have 2 speeding tickets already, one more ticket and I can't drive for 6 months. Scared the shit out of me. But, no warnings and no fix it tickets. Anybody have similar experience? Did you get amber bulbs? Does the car look wussy after the bulb change?
