They have a 30 day return policy and perfect feedback, when I buy from sellers with perfect feedback I always come out fine!

I think he means that the LEDs for the turn signal looks like they are missing.

You still need the bulbs, ballasts, turn signal LED modules, AHL modules. Hopefully you can find deals on those too.

That has to be fun finding the turn signal lights and the little orange parking LED's, not to mention installing them

Well, if there is a problem I can return them, but all of the pics I saw on ebay look like that, so I don't think anythings missing in terms of the turn signals, could lci e90 owners help me out, are each hole filled with dome leds in the turn signal, or are the holes flush?

I already found the ballasts for pretty cheap, and these are coming with the bulbs. I'm looking into the turn signals now.

I called the seller and he said everything should be complete with the turn signals, he said if I have a problem I can just send them back, so unless hes confused I think I'm good, I guess I will fiind out when they get here.

One more thing, those parts are always a small fraction of the cost of the actual OEM assembly, I would be happy to pay top retail for those parts if I had to because I got such a great price on this OEM assembly, also I already found most of those parts for a great deal anyway.

Just did a little more research, even if these are missing the turn signal assembly, I can get a new pair for $360, so I'm going to come out on top either way.

For all of you haters, I just looked up the MSRP: for these units without any electrical components, without, and bulbs or turn signals, and the MSRP for just one empty housing is:

01 Bi-xenon headlight, left ZKW 1 63117240245 $938.57
01 Bi-xenon headlight, right ZKW 1 63117240246 $938.57
