bimmian sells painted cheapest

clears suck! not OEM and hard to fit! mine are still in box, got the amber ones out with bare hands though! no need to risk using a screwdriver.

$55 for front painted Orient Blue
$55 for rear Orient Blue
$100 together...
is the rear really necessary / worth 55?
the front is orange and nasty but the read matches with the brake lights?

dont paint rears IMHO its just not needed. i personally have had both on my car, and really i liked both. installatoin for my clears was really really easy cause i just did what others said, sand down the top clips, and its really not hard at all.

anyways, what color is your car?? mine was jet black, and the clears didnt look bad at all, and the only thing i dont like with my painted is that i painted them myself and upclose u can tell it doesnt match 100%, but from like 5 feet away and further they look good.

Can't you just take your OEM ugly ones to your local dealer and get them painted. My body shop and service center both know me and expect to see me like everyweek. They painted my Euro-tag holder and Keyhole cover for free when i got my hood fixed. They are really small pieces, just ask them to throw them in the painter when a car with your color paint is being done.

Off topic, but where did you get your smoked front indicators? Any problem with water getting in?

Thanks
