: busted tail light

09-23-2008, 07:50 PM
Wifey came home with a hole in the left outer tail light (doesn't know how it happened). I checked the salvage yard and found one for $75. Does anyone know a less expensive solution. Thanks. I'm in San Antonio.

The cheapest I have found for a new one is about 110 for the inner and 120 for the outer.
That is based on my 1990 525i Sedan. I do not know the year and or model of yours.

If the used one is in good shape for 75 bucks, go for it. or you may be able to get one for even less through ebay.

I appreciate the response. Ebay had some for $75 so, I'm going with the used one. Eagle is right about the touring, YEOW. Is everything on that car more expensive?
