Where to buy oem euro clears?!?

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.
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.

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)

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.

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.
