    They will. They'll replace any part for any reason. Because of this, I'm not sure it's really worth paying a few bucks more for what is essentially the same part, but at least the price difference is small enough where you have choice.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    ďHey itís been 100k miles since I replaced the cooling system on my car and even though nothing failed, Iíd like to replace all of them cause it will fail pretty soonĒ

    So this is a valid reason too? I mean the part doesnít have to fail?

    William, I got pretty good results using a headlight resto kit on my sidemarkers. Iíll probably end up replacing them with smoked ones just so I donít have to deal with yellowing, but itís still a toss up.

    Correct. That was the exact question I asked them when I was there to pick up parts one day. They said yes.

    How much was the kit? I recently replaced my ECS tuning knock off clear sidemarkers with OEM BMW ones and it was night and day. Knock offs served their purpose, but they were really fading, yellowed and the gasket was completely gone just leaving behind the plastic.

    i just replace with OE. It takes like 3-4 years to yellow on my car so whatever. And they are a lot cheaper than how much they used to be.

    Oof, Iím not sure. Maybe $30? I bought it from Costco several years ago to improve my momís Lexus headlights. Of course they were replaced as part of a recall a year later. My kit is made by Meguiarís.

    Thanks for the info and opinions, gentleman! My side markers are yellow, but the gaskets are cracking as well so I figured it was time to replace them wholesale instead of trying to restore them. I'll probably go BMW.

    Can anyone confirm that shifter boot part # 25117919219 already comes with a plastic frame? Thanks.
