LED Door Projectors

So I was at the dealer today and they had these really cool LED door projectors on display in the parts department that project the M logo onto the ground when you open the door. I loved them! They offered them to me for $156.00 and said that theyíd install them for free. Well I found them online for $115.00

I canít imagine that there is much to the installation, they all say Ďplug and play.í

Hereís my question: Should I pony up for the OEM units or pay MUCH less for some after market ones? Iíve seen them for as low as $14.95.

My rule of thumb is usually: Buy Good; Buy Once. And the OEM units come with a two year warranty. How say you?

I bought eBay non-genuine ones, $24 for 4, M sport logo, have been installed for 6 months, no issues and crystal clear projection. Install is super-easy...

I did these recently and purchased them on amazon. I think it was less than $20 for a set of 4. Very easy install, took less than 1 minute per door, all you need is a small flat head screw driver. They look great and are crystal clear.

I do wish I'd gone with the M Logo so I'll probably purchase those too. If anyone has a pic of them installed I'd love to see it.

I got some for my girl's Audi for like $15. They work fine i wouldn't pay that much.
They get a little blurry on the far end, but not really a big issue plus she doesn't notice

Maybe it’s just me, but I have a hard time justifying saving a few bucks on a non-OEM part on a 90k car.
