I had replica ones, they're not bad, couple downsides, one, like djcontra mentioned (bulb sockets) and the other if you look closely where the clear and red merge, there's a hint of red showing in the clear area. Other than that, no tail light failure warning from the OBC.

Wow, I'm surpised at all the fairly positivie reviews of the replica ones..... you guys are making my decision pretty tough.

But first I'll wait on Jon for a while and see if he comes through

can anyone verify something for me. i bought OEM taillights from an online internet company that only deals with OEM parts. now there is no BMW emblem on them at all, but they tell me that if they arent sold at the dealership than its illegal to have the roundel on them. is this true??
my tails look OEM and the craftsmanship is damn well OEM, they are so good that even if they werent OEM id keep them, they look 5 times better than any aftermarket ones ive ever seen both on the outside and the backside.

BTW, which website did you buy them from?

You got fakes. Even sidemarkers got BMW logo on them.

Do you see red lens merging with clear when you look at them?
