I am thinking of replacing my tail and marker lights from factory to smoke. BavAuto.com is selling the whole tail lightassembly for $234.95/pair and maker lights for $70... Is this a reasonable price or can i get a better deal some where else? If so where? Also, has anybody purchased anything from them? Howz the quality?
The service and quality is great, expect the best. The only problem is their prices, very high!!! I know some other members have bought products from pelicanparts.com and were happy with the products...
Just remember that sometimes cheaper is not better. I have read some people had problems with water leaking inside the trunk after they replaced their tail lights because of cheap parts... the fit was not perfect.
I purchased my front and side turn signals from bekkers.com. They are about the same price and quality as those found at bavauto. Pricey, but oem quality. Don't slap some cheap crap on your car, as they will leak. Spend the $$$, it's worth it in the long run.

but anyways why dont you just s moke them yourself for 25$? thats the way to go looks the same as long asyou arent stupid!
got my smoked tailights off ebay from some random for 100 bucks...the fit wasnt perfect...but it was damn near close..they look great but the only crap thing was since it wasnt made in germany not all the lights worked so i had to take it to a bmw place to remap it...no leaks, very strong and look great.
i suppose you could do this with any aftermarket tailight that has "clear" corners on them. they appear white on the outside but they blink orange because of a cover around the bulb inside the taillight. I have not seen the insides of any other tailights besides mine but i dont see why you wouldnt be able to this with other aftermarket lights. it looks sick...but it was a pain in the ass. took about 2 hours per light to get the damn thing out. it was worth it tho. if ur gonna do it be prepared...its tough
