Here's my car before the accident:

www.angelfire.com/pro/yairt/3.jpg

here are the lights i want in

http://bavauto.com/assets/imglib500/e36_tsmk.jpg
either those, or the m3's (white and red)

but they list for 240 on bavauto. anyone have any idea where i can get a cheaper set?

also: neither of my brake lights work since the accident (just the top center one, behind the rear glass) does that mean the bulbs are blown? where do i get new bulbs?

the dark ones look nice, but the all white dont look too good IMO.

Also, you can get new bulbs almost anywhere. Even some grocery stores carry them.

i have the smoke lights in my 328 IS. it is avus blue. i find they darken the whoe appearence of the car. i think it looks really sweet. i have decided that i need to get a digital camera soon, maybe i will post the pics if i buy one soon. if you do the smoke, do it all around. they are easy to install and look great as a whole. you might make your car look ghetto if you only do one set in the back. the price is worth it as they are pretty decently made. not listed on bavauto's web page are the smoke side indicators. they look pretty sweet.

i have the smoked grey from bavauto.com. i think they would look really sweet on your car. they do on mine. the smoked black also look nice. i like how there is no amber that i can see in the smoked black. i would definitely do the smoked over clear...but i am into the darker looking cars. bavauto sold me front, side and rear light sets for $80,40 and 240, respectively. i would do all three. hope that helps.

i think he said that cause he thought the M3 came with the red/white tail lights. those would be my top choice.

to answer your original question, get all those lights off ebay. i paid well below $200 for all of them.
