These lights on mine.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SAAB-9-3-93- ... ctupt=true

What do you think?
Might have to fit two small reflectors.

i dont like red normally but that looks pretty good to me as it is mate

and im too tight to spend 100 quid on a pair of lights unless there rare beasts to find are they hard to find mate

Bit steep Dave, I was just using them as an example.
Haven't really looked into how much they cost.

Hmm, I'm not sure on them now looking at your picture.
I think the black parts around the outside look a bit odd.

Fitting clear rear lights to your car will be an MOT failure. The clear lights do not have a red reflector built in. That bit is now black. On the post - 2007 cars there is a reflector in the lower bumper, as shown in c2kev's photo.

I think they look better on a black car or with a bit of a tint like these:

I really don't like them on any colour car. The black lines within the ice block spoil it for me.

If I ever get a face-lift 9-3ss the rear lights will be changed. However, I also prefer the old front end!
