Hello guys, I have been reading all of your comments on everything and I must say I truly appreciate all of you guys information. I am a proud owner of a 2001 330ci. I called BMW and asked for a price on the clear corner lights and they gave me a price of $284 for the back lights and $113 for the front. I then came across www.autodynamic.com and they had their front lights for $24 and their back lights for $109. What I am confused on is this, what is the difference between BMW's clear corners and the after-market corners and why is the price so dramatically lower. It cannot just be the BMW name. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

ill stress it now that aftermarket clears are def not the way to go. Aftermarket Clears generally do not fit correctly (fitment is terrible) and are sometimes not water tight. Youll sometimes find water trapped inside the clear assembly. I strongly recommend OEM clears.

Of course dealers will be expensive. I paid mine for about 350 total (under 400 def). Try places other than the dealer for OEM parts like www.circlebmw.com or www.pacificbmw.com . Surely they can have better deals than your local dealers.
