Z3 Replacement Side Marker lights fitted

Postby colb » Fri 12 May, 2017 12:23

Just replaced my chipped side/marker light units with these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-Z3-1999-O ... SwzaJX7TXs

They are described as Black but are more smoked than black. Straight fit replacement they come with amber bulbs so UK will need to retain your white bulbs from the old units. For the price you get a pair for the price of one offered by other sellers and they look better than the standard white lens units.

No, white, they are the cars sidelights not turn indicators, the cars indicators are housed at the edge of the headlights under an amber lens.
