ebay but be careful and e-mail them before you order to see if they have them in stock. i've tried like 3 times on e-bay and turned out none of them had anything in stock. even tho it was posted on ebay......

or if u wanna do it yourself its not all that hard first remove all the bulbs from it careful no to touch the bulb and all u need is a headgun and go around the seem with it cause its glued and when u pull it apart if i remember correctly ull need a philips its been years sence ive done it but the amber lens pops out then u just can pull the housing out give it a light sand and paint it black or which ever color if u want to color match or what ever and put it back together same way takin it apart heat up along the seems and just be carefull, and if u dont have a heatgun them u can use an oven but i personaly did it with a heatgun so im sure some one else would be willing to share what degree and how long to put them in for, also i think theres accualy a diy thread for this but i cant give u the address cause im on my cell but i did find it and now just editing my post goto the accent diy in this forum and it will be called LC/LC2 clear corners, hope this info helps

I Painted my housings black and tinted the amber lens black instead of removing it. I did the same thing to my XD Elantra and it looks sick as hell on it.

that looks sick but i think im gunna go clear corner.
but what paint did you use to black out the housing and did you have to sand?
I used Krylon Fusion paint and like 3 coats of cheap wal-mart glossy clear. I didn't sand very much. I just took a scotch brite pad to the bezels and scuffed them up a bit then used de-natured alcohol to get rid of any residue left over. sprayed 2 coats of paint and let dry and then sprayed a clear coat on 1 at a time about every hour or so. For blacking out the corner lenses (a few people use nite shade spray tint) I used smoked Grey vinyl on it. That way if I ever get hassled by the man I can just pull em apart and remove the vinyl. (I have had the XD done for over a year now and haven't had any issues with the law. I have my taillights tinted too, which I thought for sure would get me pulled over but the light shines though nice and even in broad daylight and the relflectors can still be seen at night from the end of my lane (about 1500 feet.)

damn i wish they still sold em. ill end up just taking them apart because the clear plastic is starting to yellow over on the inside. so ill clear the corners, paint the housing, and polish the outside shell.

any suggestions how to polish em. ive seen polishing headlight liquid but thats for the outside
