Exclamation Clear Corners - Amber Delete / Replace -- anyone else had any luck?

Anyone tried to tackle the amber delete mod? I hate my E90 corners.

A friend of mine (an audi driver) saw my car and said "wow that's awesome." then he walked around and said "oh those amber reflectors are ugly"

*sigh*

I would love to see someone get rid of their amber / orange corners for under or at $500... 1k+ you might as well buy the euro ones :-/

I too would like to delete the amber parking lights and have the "european" look. I suggest subscribing to the thread below. As of now there are no current mods to delete the parking lights and any modifications to parking lights are more difficult than previously thought.

I am looking for an extra driver headlight. If i can get it i will be doing it. I want to put in Black Carbon Fiber instead of the amber. IT would be HOT!

get some black vinyl overlay and put it over the ambers. Thats a cheap and quick fix.

when you pry the headlight open, make sure the tips of the angel eyes are loose and detached from the housing. Otherwise.... SNAP!
