sidemarkers always on or just flashing?

Which would look better? Now I have amber clear markers that flash with signal. Would it look better to be on all the time with parking lights (both matching amber)? Kinda like the TL and crv.

Personally, I would have them just flash with the signal.

Flash with signal.

Always running can sometimes look like it was improperly or carelessly installed.

Yuck I tried that both ways thing, but I don't like em alternating. An easy way to do it is hook one wire to green signal, the other to parking light red wire. I like the dual filament idea, but how in the world did you do that?

well these are amber, it's not like they're ricer white and staying on or regular white like I had before. I guess those cars that have a similar setup stock are also rice too. But meh, i'll just keep em flashing like normal with signals.

Oh and has anyone seen the new rsx headlights? There is a front facing signal but not visible from the side. I thought legally you had to see the signal flashing from the side.

i vote for on with parking lights. And its even better when you have a good amber colored bulb. Not those cheapo clear bulbs that are kinda yellowish, those suck!
