Aftermarket E90 (Pre LCI) Taillights

Can anyone vouch for any aftermarket E90 tails? Ive looked around but cant find too much on the aftermarket ones.

Thanks

Yeah I have looked at the OEM ones they look ok but im looking for a lil more smoked look than they offer. Thought about just changing the inner lights or just waiting it out to do a LCI conversion but need to find someone to code my lights if I do the swap.

The Depo lights are darker smoked but quality is questionable.

Yeah I have seen the ones from MArs but they are a lil pricy for aftermarket. I may just keep it original and get blacklines

Depo blacklines are fine. I have had 0 issues with build quality. Compared them to friends OEM blacklines and they're almost identical except for the shade.

The "sagging" light bars was only common on early build Depo's. If you buy a new set (after 2011), you shouldn't have any problems.

I have seen quite a few depos with loose light bars.

OEM blacklines look best IMO, expensive but the qualities great and I've never had problems with them, unlike people I know that got any Depo lights.

I have depos... And my light bar sags... I bought them used from a member and knew about it, but I plan on trying a new pair one of these days... Oem is best quality but the depos are darker which I do kind of like better...
