Ok, I'm curious. Why do you want white side markers? Is this the newest "hot thing" or just for the sake of continuity, or what?

Color-matched side markers > clear.

Paint your stock ones and call it a day, way cleaner than some cheap clear looking ones.

Whatever you do, don't be that one person that puts clear bulbs inside a clear housing. All for the sake of looking cool with the kids.

Even though my car is 2 months out I already bought a set of those silver halogen bulbs that glow orange when lit to replace the stock orange bulbs that cause the "egg yolk" appearance.

At some point I'm sure a vendor will sell color matched painted reflectors that can be installed to remove the orange one mounted in the bumper, which I will be purchasing as well.

+1. I will be ordering from LTBMW as well. Please post pics once you install yours huskercubfan. Love our MW. Just detailed the car again today. Detailed twice this month and very glad i chose MW over Alpine white. This paint is thicker than Alpine white. I had so many rock chip nicks on AW and now i noticed on the MW it lightly hits only the clear coat. Not noticeable unless you flash a light on it up close.
