Brand New Solaris Invisible Bulbs ~ 1/2 price!!!

Bought a set of 6 Electrum bulbs (Amber) from Bimmian, but they are wrong offset. They are for "OEM lens" - 150 degree pins offset. My car uses 180 degree offset.

I paid $65 including shipping, but will sell them for $35 shipped.

You can always just file one of the pins down, they will work fine with 1 pin.

Pictures can be found at the link below. I had them up on ebay a week or two ago.
Don't know what e36 uses. But these are (4) P21W and (2) 168 wedge types I believe.

p21w is a euro spec equivalent to 1156, but the offset on these are 150 deg apart. 1156 has stright across pins offset at 180 deg. Check out the 3rd pic from the link above. If your car has 1156, these won't fit unless you file away one of the pins. But I didn't want to bother with that; I've ordered new correct set of stealth bulbs.

We can exchange them for you if you'd like and they are brand new, unopened.

Ahh...that's too bad. As said, I've already got a new correct set of stealth bulbs. But can I at least return the set and get some refund back. I understand there will be some 10-15 % restock cost. They are indeed brand new, but of course, I had to open and took them out of the box. That's how I found out they didn't fit my car.

You bought stealth bulbs instead?
We have the solaris that fits your car too, sounds like you may have selected the wrong set at the time of ordering.
As long as they are unused and the silver coating is untouched, we can do a refund or exchange.
Please go to www.bimmian.com/contact and fill enter your email there to start the RMA process
