I went with the F10 side markers. The LED lenses are bright and beautiful, but the sides are already beginning to separate a bit from the body. I'm pretty sure they'll snap right off in a matter of weeks or months in some car wash/ dry scenario.

Just looking for additional options.

Please post pictures, along with why you decided to go with your particular side marker set, along with your source.

Thank you!

Best,
DK

I did not go after market but I replaced the bulb with an led bulb and then used VHT spray tint to make them black.

IMO doing what I did is the best option unless you have custom vented fenders.

Looks good man! Yea, more and more I'm thinking the extra plastic bezel around it is a bit too much. Poot.

VHT Niteshades on OEM.

It's a little blotchy up close. Might get a smoked aftermarket set but worried about fitment issues/leaking I keep hearing.

By far the best ones I've found super bright and come in both clear or tinted. White or amber led.
A bit pricey though but have a very updated style

i just picked a random auction.
just message them.
they were great.
off they look no different then OEM (besides that you can see any bulb which is a good thing).
and they are brighter than just 1 LED and i nice clean design.

anyone who tells you they think just replacing the bulb with T10 bulb is a moron.
it looks so cheap and its just a blinking dot.
ugly as hell

you FAIL for not posting a pic of your f10 sidemarkers!

How was the fitment? ive read you have to do a little trimming to get them to fit?

I either want to go with f10's or the DEPO ones. My OEM's are starting to turn yellow

I did a short video in one of my other threads bro

No trimming needed, they snapped right in! The only problem I had was with the double sided tape- didn't stick all that well, but no matter, as it's just a black plastic bezel- the LED housing itself snapped in securely.

Actually had not seen them before and liked them so much, I ordered a set - smoked amber!

If you are on the fence, I will post up some good pics of them within the week once I get my hands on them and can tell you if they are of decent quality fit and finish. Auction says on or before April 8th for delivery.

I bought these ones http://www.ebay.com/itm/400686946405...84.m1439.l2649

Bah, you sold me bro- I'm going to pull the trigger on these puppies! How was the fitment, nice and flush to the fender?
I'd love to see a little video of these in action- anyone?

Anyone want to buy my F10 side markers? The tape is going to be a less for the wear, but the lights are only five days old LOL
