Don't buy clear corners from "XRteam" on eBay

Last week I was looking for cheap black housing clear corners on eBay and found that they were the cheapest price for black housing ones. They arrived today and I opened the box and they are not black housing


heres what they advertise



the ones I got look like this



I wonder if I could swap the clear part with the orange part on the stock ones?

Oh well, not THAT big of a deal to me. I put them on and they look a little weird, but I think I'm gonna try and swap the lenses from them onto the stock corners.

Buying parts on eBay is always a gamble, you said u were looking for "cheap".

Hey I've bought most of my Mustangs parts from eBay, its just a crapshoot sometimes.

Im sure if you contact the seller hell be willing to refund.ship back, replace

If you try to sway the lenses from your stock corners, post your results, I would be intersted in how well it comes out.

Also, from my own experience:

Put those on your car for a few months, and all that white will turn a yellowish color as well.

But I second the black sharpie. I have to re-sharpie my corners every few months, seems like the black fades away.

They are talking about the clear lens, the housing itself isn't clear...

I had the white clear corners first time around and after enough people here ragged on me I took a sharpie to them, the faded not long after and I painted them and it looked much better. Best bet is just to get black head lights and corners like mine.

I don't like the black stuff, wheels or lights. I personally feel its getting played out (expect on steel wheels) but if you like it thats cool. I emailed them asking whats up with the item different from the picture and they are refunding $5 back since they said they got the wrong shipment this time from their supplier. Oh well, would have rather spent the extra $5 for black housing ones but whatever.
