We still have LED in stock. If you decide to get some, look in the group buys section of this site

If you want LED tails.....

Eagle Eye LED Taillights are the way to go. They have the best fitment, and it fits like OEM

I got mine from Umnitza. I think there is a group buy going on right now:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=543996

Here are the tails to his website:

DDMtuning has Eagle Eyes for $145. I went with smoked on my Topaz coupe and they look great.

The smoked on the dark grey looks incredible.

i have just sent off my second set of eagle eyes back to Khoalty. First set had bad wiring and the second set had 9 dead LED's. Im not blaming Khoalty, but beware that the LED tails have been problomatic at least for me.

I think "smoked" looks best on darker cars.

You can either purchase black trim from the dealer or wrap your chrome trim with 3M vinyl tape.
