Default needing advice buying the front corner light of 2003 E46 M3

So the lens covering the housing of the right corner light of my M3 fell off and it's gone. so I am left with a bare bulb. I notice on ebay there is a distinction between 99-01 and 02-06. So is there a real compatibility difference even though it's both supposedly for e46 m3?

vs this:

they look about the same. one is a lot cheaper. thanks

Yes, older is clip in and newer is screw down. Get the right one for your model year like any other part search. Buy genuine bmw for oe or magnettimareli or AL or bosch for OEM. Depo and others on ebay are asian reps fyi, but not bad if you don't care.
