Looking for a sponsored/trusted vendor

Hey guys,

I've looked high and low both on e46fanatics and xoutpost, but I have found close to nothing. Is there a sponsor out there or a trusted vendor that sells smoked tail lights for an E53 (X5)?

Everything I've read on xoutpost is for ebay vendors, and the majority are looking to install LED. I am just looking for standard bulb, smoke tail lights. This is the closest thing I've found to a reputable seller at a reasonable price: dotcomracing.

Can anybody lend a hand? The closest I came to finding ones with a trusted vendor was jlevi, but once I went through their menu, the pictures for the section for x5 tail lights showed lights for a sedan or z coupe...

Thanks in advance.

Are you looking for LED tails for the E53? If you are just after smoked standard tails, we carry Smoked Lens Film that you can apply to the OE tails for that look.

Hey Nick,

I'm not seeing tail light kits for E53 (2001) X5's. I only see headlight and fog light kits. Am I missing something?

Do you have pictures of what the different colors look installed? Light smoke v. dark smoke?

Also, how long do these last? I've heard people have to replace tint often due to it peeling off.

Thanks!

Can we talk via email? I would like to know more detail. i.e. estimated time of shipping, extra costs for special order (if any), installation etc.

Thanks! You can PM me as well if that's easier.

We have them in smoked and non-smoked built by Eagle Eyes.
We have the clear on the site, but you can request smoked as an option.
