Looking good Paul!

I thought about installing them, but I think they look better against darker colours, like SG.

Beaufighter's don't look too bad, mind!

Looks good man, I am thinking about getting a set also, they look GREAT on SG but my car is Arctic and I havn't seen any great pictures to make me order them! I am also saving for 162's, so 170 bucks is not worth it right now!

Paul, welcome to the blackline club, I can honestly say I've not seen any other E90's with them so its nice to be a member of an exclusive club and look slightly different to the masses. Looking forward to parking mine up next to yours

I've fitted them to my 330d and they look great. Really make the back end of the car look so much cleaner.

I'm well chuffed with 'em - the line down the side over the handles now flows around the car instead of being interrupted by a red indicator.

At first I didn't care for them but, pardon the pun, I see the light! If I'd known about them in January before my tail lights were changed for the SVA I'd have requested them instead of what I got since I was having to pay for new lights anyway.

You're right! I priced them today and they are £165 for a SET. I was assured that that was all four items (2x each side). Wonder if that includes the insideous VAT.

Maybe I can find someone in the US that would like to buy the red/amber tail lights to replace the standard all red.

Wow,that was cheap! The cheapest I could find them on ebay was 135.00 + 35 postage!
I purchased mine from BMW for 140 (got a discount) and fitted them myself. Well ripped off!
Nice touch Paul, they do make a difference.
Thanks for the email beauforty. It would be great to come to the meet. If I can make it, I will.
Hey, we could all park side by side. The "Black line" gang
