I have a broken European lens that needs replacement. I saw on eBay 2 lens for $60+ shipping from Turkey. Anybody have success with these?

Just know that non Bosch lens are not the same clarity as others. they are not as clear as Bosch. so if you have a bosch on one side and something else on the other you will see the difference.

I would look around locally? Maybe ordering from Turkey is better, but I've had some bad experiences with purchasing things from China via eBay...

I agree with the China trap. Ordered a window regulator and the whole frame plate twisted after 2 weeks of operation. As for the lens, they come in pairs. So, for $90, I'll change both and hopefully call it a day.

Received my lens....took me 20 minutes to install ( 5 minutes to figure out those hold tabs rotate ). They fit perfectly and look great ( minus the missing Bosch logo ).

I have already replaced both but, it was the left side that was broken. So, if anybody needs an original driver's side. Cover shipping and it's yours.
