Not sure there are different black line taillights? I think there is only one kind of blackline taillight.I agree, I'm not a huge fan of them and desperately want them off. Your opinion, do you think the smoked Blacklines or the clear ones would look good here? I'm a little indecisive....
They come in clear, non-smoked, too.Not sure there are different black line taillights? I think there is only one kind of blackline taillight.
the blacklines, have a clear top part of light on both the actual light and the truck peice of the light... the "clear" part is definitely "smoked" but not blacked out. There is a tint of black to it, but it is mostly clear.
so to answer your question, I would just get the OEM blackline taillights and call it a day - I would try to get real BMW and not the knockoff ebay ones.
Someone who isnt as lazy as me will post a pic of the OEM blacklines.
wow, really? I honestly never knew that. learn something new everyday ha :thumbup:
+1 on that, those things are hideous.wow, that car color is nice, but those blacked out lights look AWFUL.
why do people do this? It doesnt look good on a '93 civic, and it sure as hell doesn't work on a newer BMW!
...I entered this thread misreading the title thinking it was trade my blackLINE taillights for your OEM. that, I would be all over.
Good luck with finding someone to trade with, there are very FEW bmw owners looking for blacked out tails - I would just go buy yourself a set of blackline tails and ditch the old ones - that shouldnt be put on ANY memeber's car
Yes, it appears they have been discontinued. I knew a couple people that bought them, since they have the amber rear turn signals (instead of the red). I had never heard any complaints, so I assume they were good quality.
Are you saying you have the original manufacture tails or the ecstuning ones for a home?There are both kinds. The clear tops were OEM but not BMW (confusing, huh? Made by Hella #259807). Here's a link to them but I see they are no longer available:
I bought these years ago and have them on my e90. I also have the originals. OP, if you want them and are willing to pay for the shipping, etc. I'm happy to send them to a new home.
I just bought clears bl"s for my E90 at:Yes, it appears they have been discontinued. I knew a couple people that bought them, since they have the amber rear turn signals (instead of the red). I had never heard any complaints, so I assume they were good quality.
The replacement seems to be the lightly smoked version:
These still have the (much safer) amber rear turn signals, and are genuine BMW.
