We sell a lot of DEPO stuff and have for years, there are a few people who have issues but pretty much all of them are fixable. A very very slim amount of our corners have the condensation issue but I can't think of any time since I've been here it hasn't been fixable without swapping the corners for replacements.

OEM is always better than aftermarket, but in my opinion, and this is not because I work here, OEM cost is typically just not worth it. All of my BMW's have DEPO products on them, they all blink, they all fit, they don't fall out, and they don't get condensation, so really I don't think OEM is worth it.

My E39 I /did/ do a HELLA Celis tail retrofit, but that's because it was a great deal and there is nothing aftermarket that even comes close to them.
hey man, thanks for your honesty and i agree, once i get the money il definitively buy them. thanks

Khoa was cool and gave me a few pointers on installation. I will be ordering the rest if my lighting next week.

Cool man, do you want to share those pointers?

ALso, how can i reseal them, or rseal them better against water once the new ones are in?
