Clear Lenses

Clear or yellow-colored lenses (aka “ambers”) are one of my pet peeves, because it all seems so high school. I think Options magazine is at fault for popularizing this trend in the states as well as Japan (although I cannot truly disparage this holiest-of-holy publications). I remember my Acura Racing Club pals ordering these parts from Japan for their Integras. That was ten or fifteen years ago, so when I see how many middle-aged men put them on their cars now, it makes me kinda sick. Grow the fuck up already, ya know?.

  1. The clear lenses came on my car.
    (2003 Toyota Matrix). They aren’t nearly as bad as the jokes that come when friends ask for a ride.
    “Hey, Mandy, can you show me what the Matrix is?”
    Ouch.

  2. They were fine as a factory option.
    Option is not responsible for popularizing this in the states, APC is. The company is nearly synonymous with Euro lenses.
