Has anyone ever attempted this? it seems like the reflector is just glued in there. not sure if anyone ever attempted to heat it up and pull it out? I can find anything on here or vortex and google doesnt bring anything up neither.

It's been done, both successfully and unsuccessfully as I remember reading. Haven't seen a post in this regard in about a year, however. Legally, the amber reflector is required, we've debated this, so no need to go at it again. DOT Regs require front side amber reflectors, and rear side/rear red reflectors. You'll notice all the new factory clear lens setups still have these two items in one form or another.

im not worried about the legalities of it. $45 seems kinda reasonable. I wish i could just modify these instead...my wife wouldnt really care if there was amber there or not. shes a "if it aint broke dont fix it" person and $45 to replace a perfectly fine pair of lenses doesnt make sense to me either. Ill just polish them up and make them look new again then.

it's all a design/personal preference really.

wait for a pair to go on sale here cheaper and snatch them up.

depending on the color of the car, it can really clean up the look of the front end.
