WTB: Clear corner lenses for 1990 560 SEL

Does anyone have any clear corner side lenses for sale for a 560 SEL?

I purchased a set from a BW member well over 6 weeks ago and basically got shafted. No response from him despite several emails, for 3 weeks now.

First UPS lost the package. Then it was subsequently found and returned to the shipper after a few weeks according to the tracking info. Seller claimed he never got them back. UPS won't deal with me because I'm not the shipper. After that the seller totally dropped the ball and didn't do anything to rectify the situation ... no emails for over 3 weeks with the last emails being "Sorry, UPS lost the package" and "I didn't forget about you" (apparently he did)

I believe the ultimate responsibility rests with the seller to make good on a sale regardless of what UPS did. I think a refund should have been in order and if lost - a claim made. But hey that's just what I would do.

I finally got feed up with chasing the guy and told him to keep his damn money as he obviously needed it more than I did. True to form, no response.

Some people!

Most sellers here have been honorable and went out of their way to make a sale so I think this is an exception.

Greg, sorry to hear you being shafted by a forum member. Its a good idea to let others know of who these members are so other members don't fall victims to these thieves/con artists.

IMO, I've had clear corners in the past and have found them to be cheaply made. They're not as durable as OE lights and find that the rubber that surrounds the light are not proper fitting leaving gaps in the fender area. I actually had my passenger side corner light fly off at around 60mph I'd either stick to the US or Euro lights if I were you
