Default Clear Brake Light housings? Let's see photos!

I'm curious what you guys feel about clear brake light housings?

I see a few cheapies on Amazon, but don't know of any Mini related sites which sell them?
I like the clear brake light on Mini Mania and "I think" I'd like the whole clear look throughout all of the brake lights but wonder if it may look too rice?

Have any photos? And places to purchase?

Thanks!
HTR

I see these on the 'Bay but am naturally concerned about quality...

On Pure Silvers it looks good.....but I'm kinda biased And being here in California they are only legal...if...you have some "red" someplace on the rear of your car...that's why you see the red reflectors I had to add

Thanks jimini - appreciate the photo! So yours are the cheapies from ebay?

How are they holding up? Any fogging? How is the fitment?

I have to agree with jiminni, they only look good on the PS cars.

Those actually were an option from the factory for a time, they are from Mini.

Fitting is just like OEM, I bought mine from eBay. No fogging or anything like that. Been going back and forth as far as tinting them a light gray or something. They also look good on blue cars with a white roof
