I finally got my corner lights in the mail today. It took me half an hour and they were mounted. I have been looking many places for clear corner lights, but i realized that i can not just mount clear glass lights on it because of how dark the headlight are. That would just look strange with shiny white corner lights and dark head lights.

So i figured that i had to go for smoked glass. And it looks good. It blends in perfectly with the headlights. Now off to get me some style 37 wheels..

Looks good. I need to take a picture of my head lights. They are different as well.

I ordered a set of those online, still waiting for them though... apparently the website name cannot be mentioned here. Also bought a set of smoked LED tailights for mine, as my OEM's were all cracked. The new tailights look sweet, I think anyway.

Hello.. Here is the link to the corner lights They are not covers, but complete corner lights that you replace the OEM with..

Those tail lights looks good. Not my style, but they do look good.

Thanks for the link daytona, if mine don't arrive soon enough I'll get em there. Nice driveway of yours too I'd say, smokin' deal on the 3.
I was contemplating headlights but think I still like the OEM's more. I suppose an HID upgrade to the bulbs may update the look a bit. I like this car way too much, better slow down before I go bankrupt!

MS Paint skills to the rescue.... This is my best 5 minute attempt.



opinions? not on the MS skills, just the potential look.

Too much chrome and you'll have a hell of a time getting the "Check Brake Lights" message to go away. My buddy has those on his 750iL. I'm a personal fan of the CELIS taillights instead.

The point of a retrofit is so that you can keep your stock housing :dunno: I got HID conversion kits from both www.ddmtuning.com and www.hidextra.com (coupon code "besthid-m" got my free shipping and free resistors (make sure to ask for them at checkout) for $65 shipped).

I've had the LED tailights for a month now and they work well, no error messages or glitches. I considered the Celis LED's but wanted less color (personal preference) They look nice with the dark green, the smoke lenses keep the chrome to a minimum. I got my smoke corner lights finally, kept clear 1157 bulbs also. They just make it look even better, blend in with the stock headlights nicely.
