Hi,

I'm new to this forum. I recently purchased a 1998 328i Convertible. Its in mint condition except for some ware on the leather seats, but I just purchased some nice sheep skin seat covers from Bavarian. I love the way the clear lights look on the car, so that's the next mod I want to do. Since I just shelled out a lot for the seat covers I can't afford to get the bavarian clear corners, sidemarkers, and tail lights. I found eveyrthing on ebay, but I've been reading some horror stories in this forum, so I'm not sure about going that route. I found this place online http://www.importvision.com. I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of them, and if there quality is any good??

Thanks for any input you may have!

I couldn't tell ya about them. It looks like they have quite a bit to choose from. Some look more PCP than others, but there are few that look good. I have never had experience or have ever heard of this company.

I just checked this site out. They have a lot of good looking stuff for decent prices. It looks like a pretty reputable site for cosmetic goodies. I'd definitely use it as an alternate to ebay. If you happen to order anything, let us all know and let us know if its quality goods.

Thanks for the input! I think I might just go with them cause I can get everything I need there and avoid having to pay shipping on 4 different orders. Although I was checking out the bulbs and noticed that they weren't really specific for any car. Do you think they are safe to get, or should I just get the corners, tail lights, and side marders from them and get the bulbs somewhere else?

I can't find the bulbs. Where on the site are they? Do they come with the corners?

In the main menu on the left, at the bottom it says 'Bulbs and Harnesses'. And I'm looking specifically at the 1157 Chrome Bulbs-Blink Amber(pair).

You'll have to find out what wattage you need for every type of light. As for the clear corners, I am surprised there is no picture. For guaranteed results go to www.bavauto.com and go to bulb replacements, part 7507LDA.

Oh yeah, I saw them. They are pretty similar to the bav auto bulbs. I would think they would work alright. Just make sure you get the right wattage for your year bimmer.
