Smoked or Color Matched Reflectors?

Hi guys,

I have a E90 LCI Black on Black Sapphire and I need some input on what setup I should use:

1) Smoked Reflectors and Smoked Sidemarkers with white bulb
or
2) Color Matched Reflectors with Stock Sidemarkers with white bulb

If any one has pictures of the 1) setup, that would really help, thanks!

Color match reflectors and smoked side markers. I tried the smoked reflector overlay and hated it. Looked cheap.
