The replacement lenses are sold out on bmwlight.com. I emailed them inquiring about the lenses but no answer. Any idea where else I could get them? Can't seem to find them anywhere.

Still have't found anything. Pelican Parts has the whole fog light assembly but it's $180. Really don't want to go that route.

Has anyone thought about making a CAD file for the lenses so they can be 3d printed? I know most of us probably don't have that kind of equipment at home but there are quite a few printing services out there

I'm not sure you can 3D print a lens.. it has to be pretty clear and smooth.

There's a couple printing companies I've seen that claim to be able to print smooth transparent objects, but I suppose they could be polished post-production. In any case I imagine resolution will only increase as time goes on allowing smoother surfaces...

yeah by the time you print and polish it the cost would probably be higher. plus acrylic is better for this application for a # of reasons including UV resistance & optical clarity.

Since the plastic ones are out of stock, I'm going to get a set shipped from Russia. They're supposed to be glass and take about 2 weeks to ship. I'll update when I get them.


**Lenses are in the US, still waiting to receive them.**

That's a legit find if they're the real deal.
