I replaced the amber lenses with white lenses however, when lights are on the reflection is amber. All is good and legal.I had a small encounter with a broken curb on the side of a parking space. Tree roots caused a cracked part of a concrete curb to project into a parking space. The concrete projection caught the bottom side of the front bumper almost punching a hole in it and distorting it so the factory yellow side marker lens at the top edge cracked. Estimates to restore, not including applying the paint protection film and ceramic coating vary from about $1,500 to $3,000, with the $3K being at a really high end body shop.
We took delivery exactly two years ago today and, from the factory, with a Feb, 2019 build date, it came with yellow side marker lights. All three shops just assumed I wanted to replace both side marker lights with clear lenses. Previously, I never gave a thought about the color of the lenses but all the attention they are getting got my attention. I just also noticed the picture of the car on the build sheet I ordered the car from has clear lenses. So now I am wondering is my yellow lensed car an anomaly?
So, what color lenses are supposed to come from the factory, yellow or clear? Did the lens color change to clear since the car was built? Also, why is the assumption I want clear instead of yellow lenses so universally automatic? My instinct is to stay with the factory configuration but I am getting vibes, including what I saw at the Pancakes & Porsche breakfast this morning, that clear lenses are much more common.
