Nothing wrong in clear,or for that matter darkened/tinted side indicator lenses. Both look well on an Alfa,just depends on the colour of the car as to which indicator suits the colour best.

Dust caps that dont look out of place on your alloy wheel are fine.

I have pollished alloy caps on my alloys,to blend it with the high polished rim lips of my wheels.

Im not a fan of all these silly annodised caps,in red,green,chrome effect or gold colours.A bit o.t.t for my liking.But,hey,each to their own and all that.

Clear indicators must be cool or ok,seen as you have a set on your 156.

I've got some darkened side indicator lenses, i've just not got round to fitting them yet.
Beware folks, of cheap alloy dust caps. I used to have a set on my 306 and they somehow "welded" themselves on so tightly, had to go to a tyre shop to get them removed and had to have 4 new valves!
Oh the price of vanity!!!

Ah well - looks like I qualify as a Chav. Never would have guessed it.

I've got the dust caps - did you notice them earlier today Mr O?

Forgot to mention, I've got clear repeaters on the JTD and they're on the Spider too! Infinately better than orange ones....except for the 155 which looks ok in orange.

Not a fan of the dusty caps, bit tacky imo....and they get nicked frequently apparantly.

Y'know, Mr.O, your car would look better with the smoked side indicators.....

The colour of the car is important if you want clear repeaters.

They look great on my silver GTV as they tend to blend in but not so good on the 147, arctic green, as they tend to stand out.

In my humble opinion if you like it then its ok to have on your car, everybody that modifies their car does it to express themselves, so if you like it, who am I to pass judgement?

Re: Are Clear Side Indicators ok? Are dust caps with car makers badge on the ok?

I don't like the clear side repeaters. Do look like the ones on Golf's.

But... I do like the white ones, just like the ones on the GTA! I actually have them on my 147.

And so a short antenna from the 156.

P.S. that's just my personal opinion.

My 156 has clear side repeaters as standard.

I added some Alfa valve caps from www.speeding.co.uk

I also have an Alfa etched tax disk holder and chrome door pins and I'm proud of them!

I am lucky enough to even have side indicators on my Giulia . Imagine my girl getting hit by a blind sob who claims not to have not seen me indicate where I am going

I have clear rear lights to match my side indicators.

So do others.

We like them.

I'd rather have any colour side lenses than the standard orange, they stand out like a sore thumb whatever colour the car. I prefer smoked/tinted ones myself.

Dust caps, I dunno, since most cars have the Alfa badge in the wheel centre I'd say it's a bit too much to have it again on the valve cap. But what do I know? Whatever floats your boat

Re: Are Clear Side Indicators ok? Are dust caps with car makers badge on the ok?

If you like it then go for it IMO. It's your car and you can 'customised' it as you feel fit.

For me however, I voted no to both. I like the car original. I find some of these add ons a bit boy racer. And believe me, I ain't no boy any more and I never was much of a racer.
