Hi I'm new to the forums and i just got my 93' 325i. No pictures yet, but i wanted to get clear corners and clear tail lights (not all clear but just the turn signals)

I have found what seems to be a good deal at Pelicanparts.com
Link to the lighting section

Anyone know if this is the stuff on eBay or better quality?

Those are cheap ebay undefined lights and on ebay you can get the set for $225 don't be fooled go with the mid grade depo not as much as ZKW but they are good enough just don't get the set with angel eyes I think they are home made, get the eyes else where!!! And by the way cut the wire to the runing light just use the blinkers looks cooler.

Don't cut the wire to the running light. You may think this looks cool but it is actually a safety feature. What happens when your headlight goes out and people can only see one light coming at them. This is very dangerous and I would advise against it.

OEM is the only way to go. Do not, I repeat, do not buy cheap-ass
Asian replica crap. Pay the extra for the real. Try BMP. They rock. Ebay also has auctions for OEM stuff, but it says OEM and costs more than 19.99

Also, a lot of the aftermarket products aren't very well sealed so they aren't very clear after a couple of months....

I think you're a perfect candidate for going to www.bavauto.com and purchasing their already assembled inpro Demon Eyes with full instructions and diagram. If you don't have the Euro elipsoid headlamps. They also sell the Demon Eyes only upgrade if you do have the euro lights. I trust any company that sounds like they know what they're talking about and are spoken very highly of. They also have a nice detailed set of directions which you can open directly from the link on the site if you want to check them out yourself or even print them. The best assistance I've seen yet and a really reasonable price for the fully put together ones. One of my favorite sites of the 20 or 30 I've looked at in the past week. Good luck! Remember check me out at members.cardomain.com/Nutchingbutagti
Don't let the GTi thing fool ya. When I made up that screen name I worked at a Jeep dealer. Now I work for BMW so now I'm trying to change it! Later!

Hey I got my clear corners on ebay I think they were aroun $55
fitment was perfect and instaled in about 10 minuts they've been instaled for abought a year now the only problem was the bulbs they sent did'nt fit and I had to buy new ones, that was ok because I think the bergundy tint looks cool.
