E92 Smoked Side Repeaters

Hi all,

Anyone got any decent pictures of these on a silver/grey E92. Wondering if they will look good on my car.

Thanks in advance.

There was a thread on this last year.I was going to have some sent to my hotel in New York whilst I was over there.However,member Mr Singh said that he may be able to bring them over in a more reliable way.
Unfortunately,nothing happened.These are the product:

Would the ones on ebay fit, or does anyone have any experiences with them? There are two types:

Hi Guys,

OK I didn't do a bulk purchase with EAS because I found the exact same thing from Taiwan via eBay.

Hope that helps folks!

My thoughts too.Think I'm going to go with the Mstyle ones as well.
Next question is how hard is it to get the repeaters off.Last time I tried to replace my scooby reflectors,it caused me no end of grief!
Loco-looks nice,as does the rest of your car

They come off easy, just slide the fitting toward the rear of the car and pull the side nearest the front out toward you. To get the bulb holder out i think you push down and twist (i cant remember exactly)

They match the blacklines perfectly. Any darker they'll look chav. They house 3 LEDs and look great.

To be fair when you look at my pics you can see the ISO levels are high on my Samsung S2 camera, look at the pic with the standard clear lense, it looks very 'white'. I installed them on day with pretty heavy overcast.. so the camera phone not doing them any justice

Either way I'm pleased I save money on the EAS ones, because they ARE 100% the SAME!

Plug and play or did you have to splice.Take it no error codes due to the LEDs?
