Blackline inners only. The clear outers look like garbage.

The look isn't ruined as the outer blacklines have a black ring around the clear portion only. The inners, the black line goes into the red portion as well.

I'll have to snap a few pics. Looks perfect on Sparkling Graphite.

I just want to add that when you add the OEM blacklines for some reason it has the effect of making the rear of the car look lower and wider. I think it has to do with the white section going across the whole top of the light. It is hard to explain. You just have to see it.

A buddy of mine in the aftermarket BMW parts biz is working on distributing the MARS lights in the US. I'll keep you posted.

Too pricey, over $600 per set with a 5 set minimum. Company in Australia and cant find anyone in the US who has them to ensure quality of product.
