I plan to order Clear ones for my Black Jetta, just wondering if you guys are satisfied with the quality of plastic they use? Im worried it will get yellow after a while. Hows the quality?
Its not cheap to have it shipped to Canada as most people here paid UPS duties which amounted to $100 shipped for them.
Any feedback is appreciated

Re: Feedback on ECS tuning sidemarkers (natskiboy)

Ordered clear side-markers from ECS, they arrived in less than a week and last Saturday R&R'd the orange markers for clear in less than 15-minutes. Clear on Candy White works very well, you may want to consider the smoked versions for black.
Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Hillside Imports - I ordered the MK5 Vents three weeks ago and still have heard nothing other than that they are on back order. Be warned the Hillside Import website doesn't tell you items are not in stock.
Back on topic - the ECS side-markers are exact replacements for OEM and include the orange bulbs. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

You can see plain as day on their webpage that the vents are on backorder: "OEM open vents for Mk5 Golf GTI and Jetta GLI-backordered". I know because I've been waiting to order a pair for a couple of weeks now.

i have the same car...any pics? i am highly considering the colored but am not sure!

I have a really bad pick, i'll see if i can figure out how to post it, never posted a pic yet... when they make a decision, which is today, about whether or not they are replacing my car because of the misfire problems and I get my car back/get another salsa red, i'll take some more pics http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Got and installed my smoke ones from ECS. Good quality.
My only suggestion...Just got a smoked set for my MKIV from FastAddiction and they came with really kewl four point amber LEDs. I think they should package these w/ the MKV set.
FastAddiction does it and the set was cheaper (MKIVs).
