    In my opinion the OEM clear indicator rear lights look better as i find those 'lexus' style lights can look a bit cheap,

    Like the ones above, and as they are OEM they are sure to fit, where as the clear lens ones sometimes are slightly off.

    What i think looks very nice is if you had a set of the OEM ones and got them tinted red, so the whole light looks red. Done properly though so the indicator and reverse lights are the correct colour, seen it on a VW Corrado once and i though it looked excellent.

    I bought Dapo M3 style rear lights for £49.95 off Ebay. They fit perfectly and look great. I would buy genuine BMW unless your really fussy about OEM. Just remember to buy amber indicator bulbs - I had clear bulbs behind my standard lights!

    I also fitted autoart clear inidicators and side repeaters and they fitted great too.

    Teh first link is the item I bought mate, from the same seller too!!

    Just make sure the lights aren't damaged when you sign for them - one of mine was cracked and needed replacing!
