the ones you have look ok. I bought some for my coupe that looked exactly like that and they didnt throw codes. However the tab on the front ones broke after a while, which made a little gap between the clear corner and the fender. You should be ok with those, let us know how it works out

A lot of them leak, and many of them throw an OBC message; the circuitry is crap.
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm worried about.

I'm 90% sure that I'm going to go ahead and buy the fronts and sides but I'm still not sure about the tails. I wish that I could buy from an owner who is selling his rather than a random ebay store. They make me nervous.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll just go with "brand name" clear tails and then just order the front corners off of ebay--which is still essentially saving me money.

I would recommend "smoked" corners just so that the "white" doesn't stand out as much.
What white part? The white of my car? I like the look of the smoked corners but I don't like the too dark look, either. So I think that I'll just buy the non smoked clear corners and then either smoke them myself or leave them be.

I was thinking of getting the same for my Camry through the same company.

I wonder if it's the same.

The smoked aren't that dark at all, in fact they look pretty clear. What Rooz means is that the lens on clears looks a wee bit bright & irradescent, almost white, and stand out a lot. Smoked is a little more subdued, here's a pic of my smoked corners:



Uck- gotta get rid of that egg yolk, I didn't spray the bulb enough

You drive a BMW, stay away from ebay, go through well known companies, do it right. I have seen what becomes of a car when it gets stuff from ebay. I won't name names, but please do yourself and your car a favor and avoid ebay. You will end up paying more but in the end you will be much happier.

Don't shop to save money you will end up paying more because they will break sooner or something about them won't be up to par.
