Reputable online blackline vendor? Error codes?

I tried posting in the blackline sticky, no response. I'm kind of excited to get some so I apologize, heh. What is a good vendor to get blacklines from? What do you guys think of the brand depo? Would they give me an error code?

Does the tint on the blacklines vary or all pretty similar? If so, what is your shade? thanks.

We do have the DEPO Blackline taillights available for your E90 330i. The smoked lenses are a great compliment to darker colored cars, dark tint, black window trim, and smoked corners. Fitment is spot on and you will not get ANY error codes! Here are a few more pictures of this installed on a customers car for you to check out!

The blacklines sticky has a link to one of the more popular vendors:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-E...Q5fAccessories

They sell OEM blacklines. Depo is an aftermarket brand, and has a darker tint. LED depos can throw errors in certain years/models (not sure what the actual list is).

I decided to go with OEM, and love them. I have a Jet Black E90 with tinted windows, and OEM matches just fine.

If I have a silver car, do you think OEM or depo would look nicer?

Depends. Oem is a little lighter. I prefer that look. Unless your trying to black out the car. But with a silver car, the oem will probably look better. But don't let the Internet decide how your car looks.

I have a silver 335 and the depos look much better, but i like the darker tint look. Be careful with LEDS.. saw some people were having lots of issues with them. Standard Depos (not leds) shouldn't give you any issues with codes.

I have a silver car and felt that the OEM ones were the perfect darkness for me.

Are you planning to start a OEM black line group buy? There is plenty of people looking for a used one on the forums
