I bought smoked repeaters off ebay, not that type though. O/s fitted ok, N/s went to fit and plastic lug broke off, got a replacement and did the same thing. Was this type so wouldn't recommend: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-SERI...item337b4e57dd

I got some from "RedLine Auto Extreme" via eBay - around 15 IIRC. They don't have E9x ones at the moment.
Were OK - just a light smoke, rather than black. Very similar to the ones in the first link. Fitted OK, but they didn't come with plugs - just straight wires. Not an issue for me (apart from trying to stop the wires from going back inside the wings as I was soldering the connectors on!!), so not plug-and-play.
Looks like those on the first link have plugs though.
With being a light smoke, you could see the LED's inside if you looked closely, but it didn't bother me - the smoke looked better against the blue than the standard offering.

Or just coat your existing repeaters with film:

There was a big thread on this a while ago,as I was after some.
If I remember rightly,the M style ones were the best as the others had various quality issues and didn't need any modification (will try and find the link).
I was tempted to buy from them,until I saw the postage prices for two bits of plastic.
Tight,I know-but I refuse on principal!

From the first of those threads, I have the same repeaters as Mr Singh.

Excellent quality, needed to file about an extra 1mm off the hole in the wing to accomodate the LED gubbins behind the light but they fit perfectly.
