I prefer OEM all-around non-smoked clears

Get whatever you want.

when i say they wont last im thinking about the housing it self , u know leaking cheap plastic etc.....

i have seen two type of leds for the rear the ones that someone posted above the rcr and i have seen ones that are white on top red on bottom...

what ones u guys think look better .....

sounds like a no-brainer, why wouldn't you get OEM's all around from your brother that works at BMW? many people here pay extra for OEM so they won't have any potential headaches...oh yeah don't forget sidemarkers otherwise it will look pretty bad
