Hi guys.
I'm trying to sort things out to get my car fixed after getting hit from behind.
I need to order some oem clear tail lights.

I want oem. (insurance company is paying)
I've tried bekkers and bavauto but they are either out of stock or just sell depos.

Can anyone recommend a good reliable place to order from?
Many thanks.

Crystal.

You're kidding. *th-up*
I thought I tried to get the euro clears at the dealer back when I bought the car, and they said they didn't carry them.
I think they come from BMW Munich.
Seriously guys..........they'll order them from Germany for me?

look up the part numbers on realoem.com and get the dealer to order them for you. they do not come from Munich they come from Whitby (BMW Canada), they have them in stock there usually.

yes, bmw orders parts from germany for you. Many of us have done it countless times.

Great news guys.
Whether they come from Whitby (hoping) or Germany I'm calling a dealership to check on Monday.
I'm even considering getting LED's instead.
(yeah I know...........typical chick can't make up her mind. lol)

I take it you don't like them. lol

no i don't. and nothing beats OEM quality. Aftermarket lenses tend to leak.

Yeah......that's the one thing that scares me. The fitment.
The reason I'm tempted is because I can get a PAIR of eagle eyes LED tails for basically the same price as one single OEM clear tail light/trunk light which is all I need.
(and all the insurance company is likely to pay for)

I still say OEM. But that's just how I am, I like to have all OEM stuff on my cars.

hey, the bimmian ones are sick, go with smoked Led's like mine:)

Gamite

wait, bimmergirl, you have an E46 right? I kept thinking you had E36. There are OEM LED's for your car. Just do that.

I actually like the LED's on E46, I hate the LED's for E36.


Okay< I take back everything I said.

the Bimmian set is very high quality

beemergirl

Yup. E46.
Gawd.........I can only imagine what OEM LED's for my car would cost.
To be honest I didn't even know they were available.

and so do OEM's...I dont know what they did on E36's, but 3 out of 5 cars i get have leaking lenses or corrodred terminals...This is one of the most problematic OEM part on E36's, (right up there with OBC displays, wiper linkages, and resistor packs).

My car is an E46. Ever heard of leaking with OEM's on those?
And by leaking........do you guys mean water getting inside the lenses?

I would try corner 73. they probably have the same things as Bimmian. And I would avoid bimmian if I could. There have been a few "not so great" things from them, including myself.

If you have a coupe, then you can just get the OEM ones from the dealer. If you have a sedan, then you have to get aftermarket.

I have a sedan.

Do you guys know if the set from Bimmian is the same set that Corner73 sells?
I haven't heard much feedback about either company to be honest.
