These have the clear side markers, and somone correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe with the angel eyes, if you want the clear corners you have to update the entire headlight. With the Early E39's to get the clear corners i know you had to replace the entire front headlight cover. So i asume it would be the same for the newer E39's but since you guys have the angel eyes included it makes them $$$$

I think the best way for you to find the lights would be to pick them up from an 01+ M5 cause they came with the clears!

Soldo you are kind of right.

In order to get euro angel eyes you need to replace the entire headlight assembly.

All NA E39's even M5's came with amber corners.

Yes this is possible but not a task for the faint at heart. It involves baking and re sealing headlights. Basically it could go very wrong very quickly.

Yes you can get them from BMW, but like anything else from them, they are obscenely expensive lol

M5's do come with clear tails and sidmarkers on prefacelift cars (99/00 M5)with half clear corners in the front. Pre facelift non-M's came with amber all around. As of the facelift in 2001, every E39 has amber front angel eyes, clear side markers, and clear taillights.

actually if you're going to remove the lens, you can just remove the amber plastic instead of painting them.
