Thread: Front turn signal assembly

  1. #1

    Front turn signal assembly

    One has a slight crack, the other has some moisture in it. I'm leaning towards sticking with the yellow color. Any good options aside from OEM for replacements?

    OEM are better quality than all of the aftermarket I've seen. This is for a facelift sedan?

    I gladly buy non-OEM when I don’t think there’s a big difference in quality, and I often think BMW-branded parts are way over-rated, but the after-market turn signal lights are utter garbage. As mentioned, go with BMW parts in this case.

    Dumb question - If I go clear on the fronts, is it considered mis-matched to still have yellow lenses on the back?

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

    I bought Depo R/C/R (red/clear/red taillights for my LCI sedan a few years ago and have been very happy with the fit and finish along with the operation. You are keeping the factory bulb housings and simply replacing the lenses. The cost is roughly $150/set and the factory European will run you over $300/set (if you can source them)
