I’d go with clear as opposed to smoked, but that’s just personal preference. As far as the yellowing is concerned, OEM lenses tend to hold up longer.

DIYs help you save money with repairs; let www.bmwpnpc.com help you save money with the parts.

Most of the non-factory lights I've seen are of lesser quality. The clear ones quickly yellow or become cloudy. I'd go with smoked for that reason, and they'll look good with the dark paint. Good luck!

I tinted the yellows on mine and put LED bulbs in, don't look bad against the gray but they do stay on a long time when you unlock or open the doors. Much longer than incandescents.
