I've installed the clear lights and angel eyes, discovered I'm unhappy with two different vendors invisible/silver bulbs (brightness) and so will probably settle for the egg-yolk look, tinted the windows slightly, swapped the sport steering wheel out for a thicker M-series wheel like my last BMW had, have Velocity Motorsport VB3 Hyperblack 18's on backorder (until next month), and am waiting to get the car in to have the Mtech2 bumper painted and installed.

It's a fun little ride!
save yourself the money - I bought new oem liftgate lens/lights and the clear was a perfect match...now after two years the side clears are still perfect and the liftgate clear area has darkened up again and doesnt match

Guys the backup lights lenses are simply dirty, these not changing color
all what you have to do is take those off the gate and gently wash inside using soap and soft brush.
I used to have exact the same problem but after washing I didn't sow any difference.

Please try it and lmk if this help.

Regards,
mark

You are welcome, I don't think so you gonna be able to do this with toothbrush because the access is by prety small hole for the bulb. 1/2" paint brush or even better dashboard dust brush which you can buy in pep boys, Strauss or autozone.

Oh here's a bit of oddity, I backed out of the garage today and found that the lift gate glass showed as being open. (I hadn't opened it) Sure enough it was unlatched, and so I closed it. Now it won't open... No click, no nuthin...
