Good or no?

So Ive been doing some minor things to my car, and I wanted to get smoked corners and someone recommended using khoalty, Ive never used them before and I wanted to make sure the stuff from there was legit. As well i looked to get the kidney grills where the outside matched the car and the slits were black, khoalty sells them for about $85(link below), do these look worth it?

You can buy smoked corners from them but they won't fit perfectly.

i cant speak for the coupes because i dont have one, but as far as the smoked corners for my sedan the ones from khoalty were perfect. Shipping was pretty quick and products were packaged well. I ordered corners, side markers, and r/c/r tails from khoalty and found each product to be of excellent quality. i would most definitely buy from him again.

I had no luck with the smoked corners i got from them, fitment was terrible, I ended up just tinting my OEM ones. I suggest you buy OEM clears and tint them yourself.

I don't know about the coupe but as for the sedan the fitment on mine are 100%. Everything Ive bought from khoalty fits perfect and works flawlessly. After reading an ever increasing amount of threads on this I realize I'm in the minority..

I got my smoked corners from Khoalty, but I had to trim some of the rubber off to make them fit correctly....

I've order from them several times, never had a issue with anything not fitting. Both sedans, and I think I might have ordered some stuff for my X5, but not sure.

I have bought parts for my 330Ci and 3 M3s from Khoa and he will ALWAYS take care of you. He is my favorite vendor on this site and if he has it, I will buy from him 100% of the time.

As far as fitment for coupes goes, no aftermarket company makes a perfect fitting corner lense for the coupes that I've found. I've bought countless sets from clear to smoked to blacked out lenses and they all fit like crap. Don't know why, but that's just the way it is.

Khoa is the man!

thanks for the kind words everyone!

the coupe fitments are typically very good, there are some issues between people with the push/slide in corners and screw in corners, it's very late so i can't remember what one has 'more' issues on fitment, but truly the fitment is very close and typically when customers take out their headlights or at least loosen them up, the fitment is spot on

all vendors on this forum, as far as i know, sell the same corners as us (depo), but PM or email if you have any questions on what to buy or installation!
