I just changed mine yesterday. They're really easy to change just make sure you don't break the clips that hold them in. I broke one but it's still holding tight.

FWIW I bought these because they look like the same ones from bimman. Because they're from Taiwan it did take 3 weeks to get them but I'm happy with them

It's really easy. On an E90 just slide the marker towards the back of the car and pull out. Then plug the new marker into the bulb and wrap in electrical tape.

You can see it done here

The one's in the ebay link I posted look just like the ones in this video

I really want a set of LED smoked Depo markers but I can't find any nice ones that are willing to be shipped to an APO. Boo.

Just as an FYI, they'll probably blink upon startup due to the bulb check feature. Unless you've coded that out.

Also, sometimes, fitment for these type of aftermarket sidemarkers isn't 100% from the factory. I have aftermarket LED sidemarkers on my car and they didn't fit flush to the fender without using a Dremel tool.

I have those in orange/silver. looks great and good fitment. only thing I donīt like about them, is that they "point" the wrong way.

Very true.

I recommend them OEM side marker because of this.

If the stock ones are yellowing all you need to do is buff them back to a shine. The same way you would buff the headlights from oxidization.

There is really no need to go out and buy aftermarket ones and worry about fitment and quality control issues.

We recommend most customers to just upgrade to the LED Side Markers we offer and reap the benefits of OEM reliability and LED's.

Do you mean to buy your unit including the bulb and housing? I am looking to just swap out the bulb itself to an LED 194 bulb. I'm just not sure if there is a certain type of bulb I should get.
