Who sells clear bumper reflectors?

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None

I'm looking for clear bumper reflectors. I found a vendor on e-bay that sells them for $70 + $15 s&h Any sponsoring vendors carry these at reasonable prices or is this the 'norm'?

Thanks!

Metak.. I started off with a search that lead me to the thread pointing me to e-bay... hence the details of my post. I may be stuck paying the $85 just like you if none of the m3post vendors sell these.

Well, in that case, I have seen cheaper versions of clears for the E46 and I don't think you would be happy with the quality. The clears I bought are on par with OEM. Good luck!

I just don't understand why they cost so much for a cheap piece of plastic?

Exactly... just because we can afford a $70k car doesn't mean I have money to give away. These account for no more than the $5 reflectors for bikes you can get at Target.... yeah yeah... I know about production runs and economies of scale...but, no justification for $60 and $15 for shipping. I sell stuff on e-bay sometimes and these can be mailed for no more than a few bucks. Oh well... I still have few couple of weeks before my car gets here, maybe a sponsor carries them at a reasonable price. Otherwise I guess I will have pay the $85.
