The Depo Clears I bought from Umnitza came today, I Can't figure out where the reflectors that they sent go...but it was literally only a 5 minute install....here's a before and after:




This part I found under the driver seat...anyone have a clue where it belongs ? it's not one of the fuse box locks...I checked that already.

sweet setup, it looks like one of the locks for the bulbs in the trunk lid try that :)

the depo clears and the ///M lip make the car look really clean. drop an ACS roof spoiler, and you'll be done.

check the trunk for the matching part. its either in the trunks tool kit or the BMW mat you have in your trunk. They use that part to hold the mat down.

Jeff, they look awesome. really update the whole look. Now you're gonna have to re-do your Predator Chromiums when you go clear in the front?

Thanx Greg....Yea, that's next...not looking forward to the reglue though...maybe the rings will stay attached and I can just swap the beauty rings into the new covers with no hassle. Can't decide which covers to get...the ones with the whole corner clear (like the pre-01) ir the ones with the little round projector look.

Woah they look great! such a face lift for the back of your car - makes it look like a 2003 model :)

i bet ya they will. that would make things a bit easier.. Tough call on the fronts. those clears with the round projector look (the ones from the thread a few weeks back) are pretty cool looking. Either way will look good IMO.

Can't wait to see the finished front.

Very nice! Are those tails bulb or LED? If they are bulb, does it look similar to the real Cellis at night? I have a pair of Depo front clears (non-projection) with a set of CCFL 7000 k halos already installed. I swapped them out recently from my 528 (I just got projection). They were installed for only about 6 months. If want them name your price. PM me if interested .

Hi Captngeetch;
The plastic item you showed, I found one similar to that on my e39 mine came from the panel that covers the pedals and the steering column shaft. There are two of them from memory hope this is of some help. Allan

Checked that...and I checked the truck carpet and the floor mats...My floor mats are held in place by Velcro..any other suggestions ?

I doubt the velcro holding the mats is stock. That piece looks exactly like what holds my driver's mat in place (under the left knee while seated). :thumbup: on the lenses!

upon further inspection, Allanbmw530i was right...it holds the cover over the gas pedal in place. Thanx for the lead.
