Cheap + OEM shouldn't be used in the same sentence

I got all my clears form the FS section on this site, best bang for the buck as I couldn't justify spending several hundred $ on new OEM clears.

I've given up on the OEM because of the price, I think I'm going to go with eBay tails and sidemarkers and possibly OEM front corners.

I almost did the same. Just keep looking in the Mobile I.C.E. and Lighting section under classfieds. It took me about 2 weeks but I got OEM stuff. Don't go eBay, I had trouble fitting front corners bought from eBay they wouldn't lock properly but now after some modifications it worked. I belive someone has a set of OEM front clears for sale right now. If not, just keep checking. OEM gives you that extra peice of mind It's worth the diligent searching and patience.

Bimmian is local to me I have done deals with them quite closely. If you go the Bimmian route, I HIGHLY suggest going with CHRIS@BIMMIAN he should be on this site with a username similar to that. He's a stand up guy

OEM Clears, not cheap...

but you can get a great deal on them here: http://www.circlebmw.com/parts/acc.htm and alot cheaper than Beckers

IMO, OEM is the only way to go. Why stress over fitment, quality, leakage, condensation, melting, etc, etc issues. Take a while longer and save up for the real deal. Remember you definately get what you pay for, jus my 2 cent.

If anyone here has 330i Facelifted Sedan with silver corners then I have about 10 sets in stock that I would love to sell.

We will offer them for $65 including shipping for both sides. These are OEM lights and not some cheap stuff that does not fit.

We are currently out of stock on the Facelifted Black Sedan corners.

If it is for your car, the headlights are 1 piece
