Clear light e46 2003 sedan, your help!

Hi everyone,

I am looking for clear tail, side and corner lights (the complete conversion kit) for my 2003 silver 325 sedan. I do not have much experience with such thing and I would appreciate if someone could let me know where I could get them (good looking and easy to install). I would like to have your advice and hear about past experience installing (and problems) them as well. I've been looking on ebay but I am not sure I can trust what they sell for my car there...

Thanks for your input!

U can call and ask or you can join e46toronto or e46 fanatics and ask Bimmian via private message. Then u go to shop and pick whatever u want up.

it will cost your more, but i would recommend going with oem parts as opposed to aftermarket. i have never heard a complaint re: oem (aside from the price), but can't say the same of aftermarket...

watch the boards for used ones, they come up every once and a while, especially on e46fanatics.com

I wouldn't bother with OEM. The aftermarket "Depo" brand is just fine. A lot of people use it; especially on the e46 models, as the OEM lights are more expensive. I've had good results with http:\\www.************ & http://jlevistreetwerks.com

Hi All,

Thanks again for your advice. I already placed a first order from Bimmian and did enjoy the experience. Haven't received them yet but seems to be very fast and service was great on the phone.

Regarding DEPO or OEM, could someone tell me (or even post pics) if there is any difference in the looks? If they look the same and are as safe a choice to avoid ANY problems installing, I would go with DEPO.

For pricing, ebay seems quite good...:

And:

What would you think of those? I am a fan of buying local... do you think I can get a good deal with Bimmian or elsewhere?

THANKS!

I was able to reach someone at first try and service was excellent. As we discussed, I could follow the shipping a few hours after. I am hoping to received in the next days. Maybe it did not use to be that way in the past??? Too bad...
