e39 backup-lights..any taillights
Hello, So I just bought this 2002 530i. I notice there is no back-up lights. I open the trunk and take a look. What is this? bulbs with no wires? And nothing but holes where the back-up lights should be? Then upon further inspection I see that the tail light assembly is on some sort of grid! Well I think to myself Thats cool. It's not the Back-up switch...or some other unknown and probably expensive thing. I have to go to the local BMW dealer any way to get a second key so I'll just pick-up a couple of those plastic twist in thingies. First blow..key..$170.00 (and battery..not changeable) second..those plastic thingies....$78.00 What's up with that? Anyway I'm a pretty crafty Guy (even if I do say so myself) So I figure, I'll go on ebay and pick a couple up...na da! What's the real deal on these things? Anybody?
