Talking Dealer owes me clears...

They will only install US DOT legal oem clears. Any idea how to tell when they become avilable for 02 sedan? Ideas?

As far as I have been told, clears for the '02 sedans are not, and will not be, available in the United States. Whether this is BS or not is unclear, but if you really want them now, you can order the OEM clears through Maximillian Importers. It's $399 for the clears, plus shipping.

Just do a search for maximillian, and it should give you a phone number as well as part numbers that you will need.

Off the top of my head, away, cyclone, and jason330i have clears, and as far as I know, they fit perfectly. In fact, here's the DIY for the clears: DIY for installing clears

I really want BMW to pay for them.(as agreed upon in writing) Any idea why they would not offer clears for the sedan through the dealer?

somebody on this board was able to get the dealer to install the clears.

the problem is that US laws require a yellow reflector at the front of our car. our sedans will not have one if you install the clears.

good luck

actually, the 1999-2001 ones don't have the clear reflector either, but if you read the BMW installation instructions for their OEM clears, it says that you must also install the amber reflector on the bumper for DOT compliance. To me it sounds like BS if the dealer says that they are not DOT compliant, thus they won't install them on the 2002. I'd ask them about the 2000 or 2001 clears, and if they did those.

They are so-called "DOT compliant" if your dealer installs one of these:

You can then take it off after you get home
