Default Where to buy euro corner lenses? (99-01)

I'm looking for a replacement option for my corner turn lenses. I've heard about the ones from gs, but they aren't on the site anymore. Do the euro ones on eBay work? They are only marked as one hole.

Damn you Clark!

I literally received a replacement driver side corner light yesterday. $50 from EEuro. I could have gotten two euros from there for less than $100! ARG!

PFS is a great site, and despite being overseas, shipping is usually not that bad at all, and stuff usually only takes about a week to arrive (at least here on the right coast).

I was hesitant on buying these because they don't have the front reverse lights. Those of you who have them what do you think?

before you order email them and make sure they have what you want, i order the 2 euro corners and some valve stem caps about 3 weeks ago and the corner lights are out of stock and wont be in till Aug 27 sometime.

front reverse lights? What purpose would those serve? (not being obnoxious, I actually don't know)

I couldn't give you a good answer on that but my car has them. If I went with the Euro I would have to tuck the wire away somewhere. Might just try and knock out the yellow lense like some have done on here.

So you can see stuff beside you when the front end swings around while reversing.

I got my Euro corners off of eBay. Yeah I don't have the reverse lights anymore, but it looks much better with the clear reflector as opposed to the yellow.

Isn't the hole in the ebay lenses for the reverse? Or is the hole drilled in the spot for the turn signal? I know they only come with one hole..
