Vinyl headlights corners (to cover the orange turn signals)

If I had this on my car, would I still be able to see my turn signals? From what I can tell, I should still be able to see them, but I would just like to make sure. And does anyone know of anywhere I could find chrome ones? Now that would look

hey qwert,
don;t let those guys give the barfy! Whatever floats yer boat, man. Vinyl ones I've seen on E-bay, and to me, they look like they may dover some of the turn signal. I wonder if there's anybody out here that has these things on a car and could provide close-up, non-marketing, photos.

Well I checked it out myself, and the signals are still visible, but I have another question. Does anyone have these on their car, and if so, could you post some pics so I can get a closer look?

I used clear material for clear corners. Do a search and you should be able to find the thread.

yeah you definitely want to take that off.

If I were buy a used BMW, and I see a chrome vinyl overlay on the headlights, I wouldn't buy it.
