Ok, ive been shopping around for some new red/clear Euro style tail lights for my 93 325is. Everywhere ive looked they only have the ones i want in 4 dr. All the 2 dr tails have this huge amber bulb covering inside of the tail light making it a huge egg yolk. So what gives? Where did you 2dr E36er's get your tails? and are you happy with them?


**EDIT**
Upon further investigation are 4dr tails the same as 2dr?

No, the 2dr and 4dr assemblies are different. As far as egg yolks, there is a very easy fix for that, look at this

The yolk isn't the blub. It's an amber housing AROUND the bulb.

Isn't there a way to remove the yellow housing? used On the pics it looks like it's held in place with the metal clamps...

I've read in this forum about painting it with a thin layer silver spray... Don't remember who posted that, it was with a spray can of $2.50 or something!

yeah dutch that was me, but aggie is saying that the assembly itself has an orange section.

what i would do would be to not buy those assemblies. The euro tail lights available through bavauto.com or bmpd.com or almost anywhere do not have those amber lenses in them, just buy those.

You can use a dramel tool to cut the yolk or you can be cheap like me paint it red.
