    Our 325Ci 9/2002 (technically 2003 model year) has an unusual tail light arrangement. Each tail light has 2 single contact bulbs on each side 1 for brake and 1 for reverse. But the running light socket requires a 2 filament bayonet type bulb. This is unusual as there's 1 contact on the...

    looks like i got tail lights for the M3 that had the wrong tail light connector on them but i found the right tail light connector that would work off of a E90 325i. the problem here is that the E46 connector has 7 wires while the E90 connector has only 5 with a open 6th wire insert, i assumed...

    Hey everyone, I purchased a set of used depo led tail lights from a forum member and when I received them it was missing one of the resistor black boxes. The lights work but it gave me the bulb error light on my dash and they flicker slightly. I tried to find another one but can't locate one...

    Today on "What is this?!" we have a mysterious pink wire in my trunk. A little background: Recently went to the dealer to get the airbag recall done. They checked the computer and the taillight recall was also in the system and they said they could take care of both recalls at the same time...
  9. 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...

    I have a 325ci that i would like to add a switch to that would kill all the rear lights but leave the headlights on. No its not for running from the cops or anything like that, if you have nothing better to input then saying, "don't do this", please just don't reply. Anyway i know that the brake...

    Hello guys, I'm a brand new owner of a 2003 330i, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Overall, the car is mechanically sound with a few cosmetic issues from some less competent previous owners. 1. The third brake light (the light bar on the inside) is hanging down on one side giving it a...

    Hey all, I'm about to sell my car, but some things have come up that I'm unsure about. My '04 330ci has a muffler delete and an aftermarket M3 bumper, and a friend recently offered to trade his stock bumper and exhaust with mine. Would having stock parts increase my selling value, or should I...

    I am experiencing an odd problem. When I got my car the tail lights in my trunklid were not working due to a bad ground. I have since had the ground re-wired, but now I am seeing an intermittent problem. The right side tail light will sometimes not work. The bulbs are new and both work 80%...

    I'm planning on doing the all red tail light mod by using the red vinyls. and since I do have amber non-LED tail lights, i was wondering if it would work or I would see the amber through it?

    Does anyone have a link or video (preferably video) of the different varieties of turn signal colors on an RCR tail light? I just installed my RCR's and am looking to put some LED's in them. The options DDM have are white, amber, and red. I'm really leaning towards red but would like to be...

    Hi guys, Just wondering if there is anything within the programming area of the LCM to allow the Tail lights (brake lights not indicators) to come on for the same period of time as the interior lights and angel eyes? I know theoretically this could be done by wiring upto the interior lights but...

    I know there's a problem with the wiring harness on the e46's but has anyone else had their actual lens melt? Both of mine just started doing it a few weeks ago. At first I thought someone bumped me just hard enough to push in the plastic and dent it but not quite crack it... but nope...
