Your car looks much better with the non-amber lenses. I've been considering going non-amber but I've been stalling because the tails are over $400. To do all the corners would total over $600 (non-oem) and (although I have the cash) I am a little hesitant to blow that kind of cash on asthetics.

Having said that... it is tempting... because it looks great!

Is non-OEM that big of a deal? It's not like you're buying mechanical parts that you're relying on the structural integrety / Quality of BMW. It's asthetics.

What makes these parts crap? The fact that they could fog up? and why? ... Or is it that you're just not pleased with the service or box that the parts came in.

All looks fine to me.

well for one non-oem isnt 600, it's more like 275 with free silvervision bulbs that dont show up .

And yes it is a big deal when the build quality is notably shady and inconsistent. n

1. the fronts are different sizes or the molds are messed up cause one fits better then the other + they used two different types of weather stripping which makes the left side look like a floppy piece of isht.

2. the sides are ok.... but only after I dide some bending and what not to the spring.

3. the rears... ... they fit awesome, but they too look like ass when the under molding is glued too far in around the plastic and it shows through since the shit is clear.

all in all take your 600 dollars you are saving and buy OEM, there are tons of bad reviews for these DEPO clears that i got.

i never had any issues with Bimmian. but, then again, i didn't order the clears from them.

i agree, they do look better than the ambers.
