ok, did some more research, and i got this part #

63217165973 BULB CARRIER LEFT
63217165974 bulb socket, right

I got them from Tischer's package here: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

I searched the part #'s and thats what i got. Can anyone actually verify before i order them from a bmw stealer?

Thanks guys!

Did you ever figure this out?
Im in the same situation as you. lol
Also, did you also install the updated 03.5-up trunk lip lights?
I am wondering if I am going to need the bulb carrier for those coming from a 01-03.

Do you have OEM LED tail lights? The trunk light carriers are different for the two different OEM versions.

So If I want to get the upgraded trunk lights I also have to get the matching carriers and a harness adapter?

Yes I got OEM Led's. I dont see a part # for the inner trunk light carriers in the link you supplied. It shows the outers, outer covers, cableset, and trunk lights only. unless they come with the trunk lights?

Outer lights are your tail lights. Inner lights are your fog/reverse lights. Your trunk lights attach to the back of your outer tail lights. You reuse the existing bulb holders for the inner lights. The trunk light unit should be; (Left & Right Bulb Sockets (63217165973-974))

Im still looking for the part #'s for the outer tail covers for the oem LED tails.
Anyone get these can verify?
The part #'s from tischer's site is for the holegen carriers not the LED carriers.
Anyone know where to order these?

I have an e46 2005 M3 and it seems like all I would have to do (to changing the lighting inside the trunk) is swap out the OEM festoon bulb with an LED type festoon bulb.

I actually just ordered some bulbs. I'll try to take some pictures of the lighting with the old bulb (yellowish tint) and then led bulbs (white). Not sure if it's going to be brighter, but we'll see.
