I have bought the euro taillights and want the stealth bulbs for it. Does anyone know the number of the bulb I need? Also are "Stealth" brand bulbs the only ones out there or does anyone know of better? I really don't want to be able to see them, and I don't want the ones that look blueish.

I got Phillips Silvervisions @ a motor show @ the NEC ,UK.
Sure you can get them on the net, I paid £15 , so $25 or so a pair.

Cruizin - yep mine are silver outside, and light up orange when they blink

So i have found these

http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/ind_philips.htm , but that is not in the US

and these

http://www.bavauto.com/shop.asp

Which are better(silver not blue) if anyone knows?

Also bavauto shows 1156 and 1157 which ones are for the rear light turn signals? I want to have the bulbs here when my lights get here, but I don't want to go out and take apart my old lights to find the number until I replace them.

Lights pop in and out in less than 10 seconds, they've been designed for easy, quick access. Just pop 'em out and look.

You could go to www.sylvania.com and look up your car in the auto section? However, the taillights you bought may be different than oem, so just twist them out and look.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.

I ordered stealth bulbs from bavauto.com today for both front corners(bought those today too), and rear tails. I popped out the tails to get the number but the fronts I couldn't read the number so I called bavauto and they sold me what they said it should be for my production date. Everything should be on the car next week.

step 1: get a normal everyday amber bulb

step 2: tape off bottom half of bulb glass

step 3: spray with silver paint.
