Help to identify a part (eyelid?)

a bit of an odd request - i need help to identify a part.
i don't know what to call it - eyelid(?), eyelash(?), molding(?)

a long time ago i bought these eyelids(?) for the front corner turn signals. (two sample pictures provided below). these are for pre-facelift e46 sedan, they just glue on to the stock clear turn signals.

Now i need to find a replacement, and I don't remember where i got them, and i can't find them again because i don't know what to search for.

help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

For some reason I like the pre-facelift headlights more.

I'd just remove the other side as stated but if you want them the best bet is ebay since it is not on any of the vendor sites.

Looks like a cheap way of "facelifting" the headlights of the car. I think it's something aftermarket
