    RCR tail lights. Are OEM and Depo brand our only choices?

    Id like to get some RCR tail lights. OEMs are really pricy! Whats yall opinions on the DEPO brand? Any others?

    Even though the OEM ones are pricy, that is the way to go in my opinion. My ZHP came with Depo brand RCRs and they aren't that bad but eventually when I get around to it I will be replacing mine with OEM ones... it won't be for awhile though...

    I see ECS has the TYC brand for $140, but they don’t have a picture. Anyone have experience with TYC products?

    I bought a TYC tail light for my 2009 E90 335i. Good fitment and quality, no complaints. I found mine on amazon.

    If it's cheap, there's a reason. This is one thing I've learned over the years.
    I've learned my lesson with Depo and other similar cheap parts. Never again. There are exceptions to this of course, but it holds true for a large percentage of products.

    My Depo front sidemarkers and turn signals on the touring are already letting water in and they're only about a year old. I didn't think I would be receiving Depos as that's not what I ordered and was disappointed to find they were Depos, but it is what it is. The tails are still okay, and to be fair haven't heard too much about the tails specifically for Depo having many issues, but my faith in the brand is low.

    If you cannot find a genuine bmw set, ULO is a good alternative.

    My last set of euro lights I had purchased on eBay. If I recall correctly the tail light set was $250 and the front set was $125. Only downside was waiting for them to arrive from overseas.
