Looking to replace my ambers...

Im sorry if this has been discussed before but I'm looking to replace my amber lights (corners,sides,tail lights) and was wondering if there was someone that would give me a good deal on them altogether or at least the corners/sides together?

Is ebay a no-no?? I see tons but don't want to risk getting something sh*tty!

Any help would be appreicated (I already posted a WTB thread)

(maybe I should move this to the lighting section which I just saw?!)

Ebay is not a no-no. That's where I've gotten mine and they've all been fine. And I've bought for pre-facelift and post-facelift. Just becareful when choosing your seller.

edit - What am I thinking?!! I have a complete set of pre-facelift clears for sale right now, since I just bought an '04 ZHP!! PM me.

I ordered mine from parts4euro.com and the price is nice - $409 with free shipping for the complete set.

Only problem is they are on backorder until June 1

...and the parts4euro lights are the OEM parts - made by ULO.

$409 seems like a pretty good price...are you sure these are OEMs and do they include bulbs??? I like that they are a Fanatic Sponsor!!

Is that for 8 signals or 6? I'll need 8 for my 2002 330i sedan to pull this change off correctly.

Thanks!

Seriously? OEM clears? Are they RCR clears? I dont want the CR clears for my sedan.....

What was the price with shipping? Dang. I thought $409 was great for a price! Everone else wanted over $480 for the 8 lense set.

If this is true I may cancel my "backordered" clears from parts4euro....

Never mind....they only have clears up to March, 2003. I have an October 2004 (2005 model) 325i. They do not sell them for my car at that price...

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

I know Depos are cheaper - but after reading the various threads on different forums (water leakage, melting and burnout) didnt want to go the Depo route. I wanted OEM.

So far, based on the threads and my internet searches, it appears my research stands true. - For a full set of OEM clears for a 2005 E46 sedan, the 409 shipped price is the cheapest.

There is always cheaper - but not always better out there. That is why I choose to drive a BMW instead of a Kia.

I think you should take a look again at DEPOs, we have had nothing but success with these clears and do guarantee fit and finish. If you have any issues, you can always contact us for a replacement. Also, melting/burning out has to do with the bulbs, not the clears
