yeah they claim to "make" them. but i havent see any.. I emailed Alibaba or whatever that website is, i saw them on there. and they said they discontinued them. oh and id rather save 200-500$ and pay 10$ for some tint. thanks anyway haha.

I have thought of these, and asked people who already did them on e92. They said, it looks good, but when turn signal is on, it shows pinkish color, not yellow how they were supposed to. So they all ended up taking them off

For some reason, the inner right reminds of the e46 euro tails. I like it though!

Those look gay, save up for real ones or stick wth oem. Check out ebay, I sniped a few auctions and got an entire set of LCI's for $220.

I'm normally a strict advocate of blacklines, but those look very clean ^^
Well done.

Absolutely love this look and have always been a fan of it. Much cleaner than blacklines IMO.
