Smoked front side marker

Where can I purchase replacement ones. I just noticed my front passenger side is missing. It must have fell off somehow, no damage to body panels.

Pelican part seems to only have OEM one's for $58 each..

The cheapest I've ever seen for smoked side markers is $80-$85 per pair. Porsche tax

Our forum owner Pelican Parts has them for $62 a pair ($35 left and $27 right and I have no idea why the pricing is different per side).

That's just wacky!

They have them listed as "Hella" for $27 & $35, and "Porsche Genuine Parts" for $58 each...but they are ALL Hella!

I got a pair from partscontainer for $47... not sure they are 'smoked' though, but they look pretty dark on my car...

I bought a set from partscontainer with the numbers 99663104402/996631044302 for $48.94. I'm not sure if they are smoked or not, but with chromed amber bulbs, they blend right into my Seal Gray 03!
