i'm assuming you have an ef, um imo most clear tail lights look odd.
go on your own gut instinct and do what you think looks right.
the guys round here will pick on what anyone does everytime, cos they is all typical blokes.

once again imo, the clear one look odd. the tinted ones you've got look ok, but i think that sometime's some things are best left stock standard.
i also have a ef, and the silver one's look best el natural.
any way, do what you like, your the one who gets to look at it everyday.
by the way, welcome to fordmods.

Theyre like a***hole, everyone has one, be different and keep them stock, theres nothing individual about them, like cannons, they all sound the same.

The standard EF tail lights look great IMO. As for those clear "Altezza" pieces of crap that are always available on ebay, They look okay on a white car but other than that they aren't worth pissing on.

Clear tail lights look good on some colour cars, I have them on mine to break the red up a bit because my car is cardinal red and it looks better with clears. I like the tinted lights on your car, I would stick with them.

the clear (cloudy) ones look silly IMO BUT they can work well with a car that is the right body colour....

I reakon the Chrome ones look great see if you can hunt down a set of these......

if not go to your local autobarn type of store and ask them

Some say yer looks great others say nope piss em off, when it gets down to it if its what you like who gives a rats bum what others think as long as you like them.

Depends on the color of your car they look great on white cars.

As a contradiction of this though my mate's brother has a ef fairmont with clear lights and it looks rediculous, they really need a body kit or something to tie in with. On a stock looking vehicle they just look out of place.

BTW his car is white

Trut to that. If your the one who has to drive it and look at it everyday then the choice is what make you happy in the end.
