Keep in mind the vert domelight is a totally different shape. IIRC the complete E39 domelight fits straigh into the coupe and has the same style design as the e36.
Is it plug and play or do I need to do some rewiring? I have a coupe.

I can't tell as I have no idea. It does have those momentary buttons, so I could imagine it's not plug n play.

I had to trim both the domelight and the sunroof access panel to get the E39 dome light to fit in my coupe. You will need some added electronics to toggle the interior lights on and off from the not-very-substantial, momentary central light switch. All in all, it is a fair amount of work to get things right, but if you are into that, it could be a good project.

For me, adding an E39 dome light has been a fun, long-running project to refine the interior lighting; I would not take mine out.
