Too bad, because in the pictures the silver looked really nice...
I had the gunsmoke ambergones on my previous e90 and they were great. Fitment was fine. I'm actually really surprised to read the negative reviews.

Hmmm. And it covered all of the amber? Didn't leave anything showing?

It's a clear headlight and you're only covering the top layer. I assume that at certain angles, you'll see underneath the vinyl since it's not on the amber itself. If you want it to be 100% covered, you'll need to take the amber out or cover it underneath the plastic housing. It's not going to look perfect but it's a easy, quick, cheap fix for a small eyesore if you want to go with the vinyl route.

That is a sliiiick lip. What brand is it? and how's the fitment over the splitters?. I have the splitters installed right now and im lookin to do the exact same setup. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I'll jump on board with a "me too, me too!"

I would love a pic of someone who either DIY their amber lens with tint or even did the yellow headlight covers.

The orange is gross. haha
