Smoked Corners pics for jLevis

Nick, I just received my smoked corners this morning. In another thread, I promised to post some pics of them installed on my car, so here they are. Feel free to use them as examples if you like.







I'm very pleased with how they look, and the fit is excellent. You'll notice, though, that the last photo (blinker on) shows that the light is not very bright, which concerns me somewhat. Is this caused by a combination of the smoked plastic and the Stealth bulbs not being as bright as regular bulbs?

Wow those look great, we would love to use these on the site. The Stealth bulbs are a bit dimmer than stock but I think you would find better results with our LED turn signal bulbs.

Glad you like the pics, and I'd be happy to have them used to help others "visualize" how the corners would look on their cars.

Is it possible to exchange the Stealths for your LEDs?

you need to push them in more then screw. if you look at your pictures, the driver's side sticks out more than the passenger side.

Right you are. I was probably a little hasty, and will fix that.

Actually, except for the smoked side markers that I'll be adding, I've got the car looking pretty much like I want it to. Don't really wanna stray very far from stock.

You might be right, but I really like the stock look of it.

Also, I'm about to have the front seats and center arm rest re-upholstered with factory leather, to the tune of about $1300. The seats are leather now, but the previous dork owner had them "re-finished." With VINYL PAINT! That's pretty much eaten up my BMW budget.
