Halogen license plate lights + CSL trunk
 
Has anyone been able to mount the halogen license plate lights with their OEM CSL trunk? I've bought the LEDs but plan on staying with halogen rears so I want the output to match.

OE CSL Lights use halogens.
If you have LED lights for you CSL Bootlid, then you likely purchased the E9x LED lights, which fit and is a popular choice. If you need OE CSL license plate lights, let me know and I can have them sourced for you.

E39 License Plate Lights

Awesome! So 63267165646 is a direct fit? Is there a difference between the E39 light vs the E46 CSL light?

Way back before there was e90 led lights .. the csl used these halogen e39 lights. But you’ll also need to get the wires and plugs as the connectors are different. So back in 2005 I also used these halogen lights for my csl Bootlid. Yes direct fit [emoji14]

Great! Is there a part number for the plugs & wires? I'm assuming I'll have to cut my stock plug out and solder these in place?
