Wooptdy do, im finally getting a real paycheck, and i plan to blow about half of it on clear tails, clear side markers, clear corners, the whole shabang

i looked at some prices (sorry i dont do ebay) from Bekkers, Pro Car Parts , Bav Auto, and even CarDomain (i know i know)

heres what ive found.. Bekkers seems to have some good quality merch., and they have a package of eurolights with the tails, the corners, and side markers (all clear), for $327

Bav Auto has each of them sold separately, and if i add all the same stuff offered in the previous package up, it comes to a total of about $344

Cardomain only has the corner lenses, but they have the clear/chromish ones made by YD that i like for $35, i suppose thats just one light, right?

and finally.. Pro Car Parts, who i have heard isnt too reputable. has the taillights for $99, im guessing this is for only 1 light too?? but it says (2 pc), theres no way that it can be that cheap, but if i multiply everything by 2 and add it up, it gives me a total of $290 which is pretty low

i know ill have to look up shipping costs and stuff, but im not sure which i will go with, i want cheap shipping and good quality. ill probably go with Bekkers, but PCP is so much cheaper. Does anyone know what kind of quality stuff PCP has?

please give me some feedback

PCP has very low quality goods. Most of their front corner lights are known for weak retaining tabs. I bought some, and had it break for no reason and fly out of the car on the interstate.

I like BavAuto...awesome tech support and service. However, as far as the kit....I would buy things individually, only so you can get these parking lights:

Those look AWESOME day and night. I assume you were originally going with these:

Originally I got those first, but they look so cheap and tacky paired with Euro headlights. So I went with the crystal clears. Besides that, good luck, Euro lighting rules!!

P.S. - Make sure you get white bulbs, fix it tickets are only 10 bucks =)
