Anyone sell glass covers?? Seen them for my E36.

Haven't seen any glass for e39's, only plastic for $200+, which is why $60 for the pair looks so interesting. I e-mailed another Ebay-er who bought them to see if I could get some additional info. More to come...

Nice, thanks for the info! Especially about the inside surface... It's nice to not have to learn stuff the hard way ALL the time

Lol, D'OH!!! I actually got on the light thing as one of the first orders of business when I got the car and still didn't know anything... I think I just got into the habit of "winigin' it" with a Rain-X kit and never even thought to look up a more complete process. Then again, if I can pick up a good looking set of clears of decent quality and indistinguishable from OEM for $60, I'm tempted to go for it. I e-mailed another Ebay user who bought them to see what they have to say, so it should be interesting.

Lol, the most cogent response yet
