Smoke Black Led Side Marker

Is there anyone who changed side markers on his E90 LCI (facelift model)? I found different models on ebay and don't know which to choose? Any advice, pictures how it's looking with these SMOKEED BLACK LED SIDE MARKERs?

I was in this market not too long ago and heard great things about the ones at EAS, but they ended up being a little too expensive for me once shipping was considered

I ended up getting vinyl from bluebatmobile

I tinted my OEM markers with VHT Niteshades.

Use that or vinyl. Much cheaper and an OEM fit.

I din't find tinted/black version. Can you maybe make a picture of a car when is turned on, I want to see how it looks. How is the fitting to body ?

You mean this for example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330863101340...84.m1423.l2649


You take blinker out of body and just spray it 1x over it ? Wait for how long to mount it back ? But it's not cheap solution it's more than half of new Black LED Marker =??

Spray, sand, spray, sand, spray, clear. VHT is terrible if you dont sand it down a bit to smooth it out. And very dull without a clear coat.

heres the tinted ones but in a bundle
http://www.ebay.com/itm/11-12-BMW-E9...e52c42&vxp=mtr
heres tinted ones but white LED
http://www.ebay.com/itm/07-08-09-11-...item485167b373
they fit the same exact way as OEM and the plug goes into the OEM plug no splicing or anything.
i do not have a picture with them lit on the car...as its hard to tie the blinking of the turn signal
its on my car in this photo.....just trust me...its well worth it
If i were to do it again i would prob get the NON tinted ones just bc it wouldnt stand out as much on the fender when not lit

Well I just wanna see how the "BAR SIDE MARKER LIGHTS" looks at e90, because they are different from others!

So also from others reply I can conclude that this one is also good:

Tint it so you'll still have OEM fit and finish.

Is there any cheaper solution than "VHT Niteshades", which cost more than half LED ? I use sandpaper, which grit ? But after that I will have some micro scratches on side marker ?

Not sure if the ebay ones are exactly the same, they look similar however.
Here's a pic I took when I installed them. If you want more just let me know.

The only thing that's different is the plug. In the picture you provided it looks like the male plug sits inside the housing whereas on mine, the plug is on the end of a few inches of wiring. Like this:
