  4. YES you can replace individual LED bulbs in e46 tail lights!!!

    DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hi everyone. Like many of you, I was frustrated about the few non-functioning LED bulbs in my stock LED tail lights on my 04 325Ci. And as a bit of an electronics geek, I decided to take up the challenge before I spent hundreds on a replacement assembly. I was successful and it is easy to do...

  8. Help - Black Out Switch

    Lighting Forum
    Ok guys, who has installed a "blackout" switch to disable your brake lights? I did this without any problems on my F-150 but my 2001 330i has a monitoring circuit (aka: Brake light test circuit) on the brake light switch. I once heard that the only way is to install a relay in the trunk to...
  9. 3rd Brake Light Question? - Is this normal??? Please Help.

    General E46 Forum
    This has been bugging me for a long time. (pics below) It appears that my brake light is not flush against the rear window. At night this is very annoying as the brake light reflects on the inside of the window. It has been this way for as long as I can remember. There is a rubber gasket/seal...

Does this mean that my pads are wearing out? I just replaced the front ones and the rear pads look just as thick as my font ones...
