I believe some people on here have them on their cars, and should have pictures. I don't like them because I also like the traditional look and they are from ProCarParts maybe? The quality is not BMW if it is procarparts.

I love the way those look, but they're cheap as hell man... those ARE NOT glass as they say... I have a pair and love mine, but I kind of wish I just got clear corners... they also don't fit real well. I made a special bracket for each sid to make them stay in the slow they're supposed to go into on the headlight... there is a plastic piece that broke on me during installation; pretty ghetto...becareful...

I dont care for the look, and regardless of PCP or otherwise, only one company makes that style, and if PCP has it then the quality will not be better elsewhere.

I say nay.

yup, i had those. Broke 'em after removing them one time. I recomend going with the oem. Others have 'em and don't complain, but I'm sure they will agree they aren't near the quality of oem!

I have these, they aren't bad. Mine havn't broke...yet. They are pretty cheap and I like the look specially with the hyper white bulbs that are blue. Ireflects the blue and looks good when the lights are off.

Agree with Andrews. Even though they are not that great in terms of quality but they look good. The plastic pin tends to break in the OEM corners too, btw.

I'm sure the oem lense isn't indestructable, I'm just saying they are MUCH better. I had an issue with one of my headlight assemblies which required me to remove the turn signal numerous times. Upon removing the Depot sgnal once (not two or three or five...ONCE) the clip that holds it in was bent beyond use.

Go ahead and buy 'em, heck they are only 20 bucks, many lessons I've learned where much more expensive!

They do look better than oem, some decent company should really start making 'em!!
