Hey guys, can anybody recommend me a site to purchase clear cornier lights and side indicators? There's a couple on ebay but how trust worthy are they? Thanks.

Highly recommend the new Rain-X Headlight restorer, available at supercheap auto. Currently on sale for $30. All i can say is wow the difference, really did work and made a massive difference. I'll try up date with a couple photos, not the best ones just mobile shots.

+1 Was there when he used it and it really did work great, big difference!

Here is the product: http://www.rainx.com/product/headlig.../#.UO1Oam_FV2I

I just tried the headlight restorer then sealant on my headlights and made a difference, they weren't in bad condition to start with so no point sanding.

No offence intended guys, but if its "new", RainX have just jumped on the bandwagon. Meguiars have had PlastX/ScratchX out for years....

http://www.meguiars.com.au/products/...r-trim/plastx/

I just bought new lenses when I first got my car as they were a bit stone-chipped, think they were $65 for the pair at http://www.khoalty.com/

My mate bought the Mother's kit one last year for his discoloured headlights (trust me, they were awful!), and it came up a treat. However, for the premium they charge, you can avoid that by getting 3 different grades of wet sandpaper, and a 2 polish (most of you should have these lying around the garage!)

Both ship to Aus because I've used both of them before. Probably had 2-3 shipments from Khoalty, and about 10 from Pelican...!

Oh yeah?

That's weird - they said flatly to me nope they don't.

Maybe that was Mod Bargains?

Anyway thanks.

I've never bought anything from ModBargains. I've definitely bought from Khoalty, Pelican, Turner, and ECS Tuning. Also bought from Tischer/GetBMWparts and RM European, but both those I have to freight forward via Shipito.
Just go with Pelican, pretty hard to go wrong with them. Very reliable. BIG operation, and been around for yonks...
In the UK I've also used CA Automotive, Evolve, and BM Mini Parts

Re Khoalty, it even mentions International in their shipping terms
"International Customers: all applicable duties, customs, tariffs, and brokerage fees must be paid by you, the recipient, upon delivery, we will not mark shipments as a gift as it is against the law and puts our operations in danger."

How are you trying to pay? Via credit card? Or Paypal? Some of the US companies are a bit funny with CC, I use Paypal mostly.

Yeah that's fair enough len's swaps are easier on the E46's this was on my 120i E87 where getting new len's wasn't an option. I've tried PlastX before hand it works but then it comes back worse imo defs not good enough for headlights. I'll upload a finished picture i have to show how well it came up even sanded back most stone marks ect was just very pleased with the results for $30.
