Getting rid of the amber corner lights....

A lot of the 01" e46 have the amber signal lights, but a Lot of the models from the later years have the white lights... Anyone know how to get a hold of the white lights so that I can make a conversion???

Most if not all sport model BMW's have the "white" light package from the factory usually referred to as "clear corners". You can get these lights from various sponsors/members here/internet or ebay. Just go to the "lighting forum" sub section on this site and all the information you need will be found there. Anything else you need to know you can just utilize the search function on either sub-forum on this site and get your answer for future reference.

+1 very easy to source OEM or aftermarket white lights.

First you'll need to check if your car has the clip-in or screw-in style.

Thanks cityjohn... I knew a lot of people were replacing them I just wasn't really sure where to get them and what the prices ran so ill definitely check that out... And ogsk8r I don't like then rather haha I wish they would have just made all of them standard white... Would have saved me some money.

Make sure you are careful in ordering clears you will need to know the month the car was made to insure you get the correct ones for a model year 2001.
