Default can somebody clarify about OEM LED:

i just need to know if OEM LED taillights that im about to buy from bmw dealership will be swapable for my 03/03 M3.. some people told me that it wouldnt fit right, because the new ones has slightly different size or wateva the dealer told me.. if this true that would it mean that my car can only use aftermarket led taillight..

OEM LED part No: 63216937449 (left)
63216937450 (right) will it fit in my car?

Hey, are you switching out those trunk lights too? They look a little different on the 03.5-05 M3 models too? Every kit I see only has the outside lights and not the trunk lights.

On the pre-03.5 the trunk lights are pretty much a 50/50 split between clear and red. On the 03.5+, it is predominately red with just a small clear slot for the reverse light illumination.

When I installed mine, I did notice that there was a slight difference in the red shade between the two as well. It seemed that the 03.5+ trunk lights matched better with the LED tails, but then again it could have been a lighting effect or even the fact that they lights were new versus 2 years old.... :nixweiss:

Hey, could you post some pictures of your conversion so I can see what it looks like without replacing the trunk lights? I have been wondering what that looks like. Thanks
