Clear side markers?
 
I want a set of clear side markers for my 2004 325i. I've found a few sites selling sides for 2003 and older, but not for my 2004. Already found out the hard way that 2003 side markers are too big to fit into the opening. Anyone know of a source?

Sedan or coupe? They are different. If you have a sedan, they are the same from 02-05, and youre saying they dont fit, so im assuming you have an 04 coupe...

I'm also assuming you have a coupe as well because I had the same problem looking for the clear reflectors on the bumper for my 2006 325ci. I even went and bought the wrong ones which I still have sitting in my garage.

Here's I ended up finding it on eBay after endless hours of searching through websites.

I have this exact same one and I gotta tell you, the car looks WAAY better. I'd post a pic but haven't had time to take any. Good luck!

I like those MUCh better than the painted reflectors.

This is a 325i 4-door sedan. I purchased side markers from Umnitza and when they would not fit in the rectangular opening, they finally admited that they were for the earlier model and then edited their web site to show that the clear side is for a 1999-2001 Sedan or a 2000-2003 Coupe. They were originally described as fitting all E46s.

Note: be aware of inaccurate fittment descriptions - this is at least the 3rd time a sponsor's web site specified a model which later turned out to be wrong. You only find out after you waste time ordering it only to find out the vendor didn't know what product they were selling. I've always been able to return it, but it's a pain in the butt.

The bekkers link at the top is what you need. They are OEM, I have them, and they fit perfectly
