i just bought some clear corners for 14.50 plus like 10 dollars shipping on ebay, im sure this topic was already posted but i couldn't find it. i pretty much bought them as temporary ones, until i can save up for a whole new headlight assembly, but i was just wondering if anyone had these or knows anything about them, they're made by revotec.

Never heard of them. Should buy some ones from bavauto.com or umnitza or something like that.

get your corners from bavauto or umnitza, like others have already said. Hey, do the orange bulbs really look that bad though clears? I just don't feel like spending $30 on a pair of bulbs.

I know this probably doesn't meet my states DOT requirements but i'm running white bulbs in my clear corners and it looks great! I may get the stealth bulbs later depending on whether or not the police say anything about it or the inspection place won't inspect. The stealth bulbs are nice tho.

I had the Silverstars in my smoked corners, InPro (I know, I know) and they looked like shit. I hate the 'rainbow' effect they gave the corners. I moved them to my tails and they look blue. My tails are clear. Anyway, screw the stealth bulbs and the outrageous price. I bought standard cheap ass orange bulbs and a can of silver spray paint. A fine mist of paint on the bulbs knocks down the orange and they still glow fine.

I am not a fan of seeing orange or blue in the clears. I wish I could find some tails that look white like the stock ones on the 5 series.

This thread has started me thinking. Jlevi sells the LED turn signal 'bulbs' and sidemarker LED 'bulbs'. Has anyone purchased these and if so, how do you like them? I know that LED's will last forever, basically, but I do wonder about the need for load balancing. I read that you have to splice in a load balancer(a resistor I am guessing) that generates a lot of heat. I work in the electronics field and adding resistance to a circuit is usually a bad thing. Not trying to hijack this thread but am curious if anyone has tried this option.
