Hi guys,
u may find this post a bit weird & hence the title, but has any noticed Accent Viva's tail lamp ?? i was behind one today & noticed that the tail lamps assembly had regular non Clear lens brake lights but had clear lens turn & reverse lamps.. I mean usually either the complete assemply is clear lens or not, this is the 1st time i saw a tail lamp assembly with partial clear lens..

Has anybody else noticed something similar in other cars ??

Yup, quite a few cars have the same set up of clear lens reverse and indicators with regular brake lights.

The Octavia is one that somes to mind immidiately. The New indica i think has the same. Maybe a few others to though I can't put a finger on them!

I actually prefer the old Accent's tail lamps to the new ones.
