I'm looking to upgrade my tailights on the touring. I've been checking out ebay and some other sites as well. The seems to be a difference in the wiring in sedans and coupes. Are the light housings different as well?
Would I be able to use any of the following tail light assemblies

Can someone suggest a site I might be able to find touring tail lights?
Thankx

Thankfully, for the sake of your car, you can not do any of those. They are all hideous (except the last one I guess, but Altezzas still aren't cool) Touring taillights are specific. You can't really buy any aftermarket taillights for them.

Truth.

Bosch (OEM) is the only tail light any E34 should ever see. Ricer tail lights look bad enough on the sedan...don't do that to your poor touring.

I'm not.. I've decided to grab some at the salvage yard and refurbish them. I'm going to use the tutorial for painting them all red.

All red on the blue touring would be nice looking. What color is the iT anyways?
