Commspares on the corner of Canterbury rd and Burgess rd in Bayswater is where I got mine. $52 for the deuce. There is also a place in Deer Park that sells em pretty cheap if you live over that side of town...

I'm sure there are plenty of other places around Melbourne that sell them also. They are just the ones that I know of.

For what it's worth, I regret buying aftermarket clear indicators. I haven't had any leaking problems, but after learning of the superior quality, appearance and additional parking light of the genuine articles, it would have been worth the (considerable) extra.

The only reason I don't 'upgrade' soon is because there is so much to be done first...

has anyone tried getting the parking light to work with the aftermarket indicators? It would look really good. But ils is right the original indicators do look better but over $100 better? choice is up to you.

Well it's a personal thing - but I no longer want aftermarket products on my car. I payed $100 extra for genuine mirrors and haven't looked back (no pun intended).

Someone (possibly EA EnVy) has installed parking lights aftermarket.

so then....

Well all clear indicators are going to be after market products. Looks wise does the $50 job look as good as a more expensive pair and if they look good and dont leak whats the proplem?

Re: so then....

Some aftermarket (ie non-Ford brand) clear indicators actually have been known to leak. It's not that I have anything against them when value is factored in, but I don't like to cut corners any more which is why I said I wish I'd bought the real deal.

Clear indicators.

I shelled out for the Ford ones. (ED XR type.)

Fit is good, quality is good, not problems at all.

Wired in the park lamps from the mian headlamp unit, works well, bit fiddly though.
