I know we've been talking about it for a long time now, and i probably know the answer to my question, but do u guys think that buying clear lights from ebay is a terrible idea? The problem is that i can find clear lights for the front and side, but nobody can find the clear lights from the back. So what do u guys think, that i should wait for the back or is ebay the way to go.......? Thanks in advance

P.S. its a 325i 2003 steel gray

are you saying you cant find clear tail lights on ebay or you just can't find them in general? cuz if you're looking for them online outside of ebay, www.bavauto.com has them, and so do a number of other sites.

I found em on ebay for a better price than bavauto. bavauto sells them for 400$ and ebay sells them for 250 or something like that. I just can't find them in the dealerships or in garages that specialize in Modifications. So now the internet is my best option... but is ebay thrustworthy?

I have used ebay for years and never had a problem, other than someone taking a month to send me my item. If you dont care that the lights probably arent OEM, then go ahead and use it.

Be very carefull with what you purchase from ebay. Not all the shit on there is EXACTLY like you think it is. I once ordered a pair of euro lenses for me benz, only problem was they weren't bosch lights, the housing was cracked and someone had tried to glue it back together. They were also a third party make. Not very good quiality. I also tried to get some clear lenses. The lenses ended up being made in Taiwan and REALLY SHITTY. They were said to come with amber bulbs, only... it didn't. And the fucker doesn't speak english, AND his email was always full, like some sort of shitty hotmail account or something.

All I'm saying is that you gotta becareful with what you get. Check out thier feed back, and sometimes if it's too good to be true, most likely it is. Look for thier fine print, watch out for thier shipping charges.. their product may be cheap, but thier shipping is sometimes more than the profuct itself.
