Thumbs down OEM Clear corners and side markers no longer available?

My DEPO clear corners and side markers are fading and yellowing, they look no where like they did only 3 years ago when I bought them from Bimmian.

So I tried to order OEM clear corners from Maranello - they tell me those parts are no longer available/discontinued - there is a new version called "Titanium" instead of amber (wtf?).

Here are the parts from realoem.com, orginal (amber) and new (titanium) no clear!

01 Right direction indicator light, yellow 1 09/2001 09/2003 63136915382 ENDED
01 Right direction indicator light, yellow 1 09/2001 09/2004 63136943120 +core, ENDED
01 Right direction indicator light, yellow 1 09/2001 63137165860 $49.60
01 Left direction indicator light, titanium 1 09/2001 63136915383 $53.68
01 Right direct. indicator light, titanium 1 09/2001 63136915384 $53.68

Where can I order OEM clear corners and side markers!? What I really should be getting are replacements from Depo - my car is parked inside all day everyday - no excuse for fade/yellowing.

Any ideas or advice?

The ones you have probably didn't have any or the right amount of UV stabilizers in the making of the lenses hence the fading.

yep, the DEPO side markers and clear corners are starting to look like crap.
Any of you have seen this before, and is there a warranty from DEPO?

Ya BMW Canada dealier is only allowed to sell us the amber corners now - I went with a new OEM set in Titanium finish - the new style looks ok. I asked about the clear corners using the part #'s from realoem but no go.

So BMW doesn't offer the OEM clears anymore? That's a shame. I wonder what the reason behind that is. I'm sure the damnd is there.
