    Best place to buy an oem corner

    So the tabs on my front left amber corner broke so I need another one. Any suggestions on where to get a cheap one?

    I'm thinking forums BST section?

    Buy? I bet someone here might give you one for free+shipping.

    I'll look to see if I still have mine.

    I'm going to check the junkyard around here tomorrow pending weather but if that doesn't work I'd really appreciate if someone here had one. Thought about clears but the amber gang is struggling as it is.

    If it is in good condition that is actually not a bad price for OEM amber corners. BMW charges a lottttt.

    Yeah I know I'm just hoping to get one for less. Being a poor college kid means I have to try and find a cheap one haha

    Back in 2010, I bought an used one on ebay for $15. It was OEM, in very good shape. But, it was for my pre-LCI 1999 e46. I would think the newer ones are more expensive.

    +1 for ebay. I see oem's selling all the time and usually for dirt cheap. If I didn't want to keep mine for backup I'd let it go for cheap, but with my luck, something will happen to one of my clears and I'll need it.
