WTB: 2002+ E46 sedan/wagon RH front corner light

I know a lot of people upgrade these with clears or something else. I just need your factory one that you swapped out if you still have it (right/passenger side).

Thanks,
Florian

And if I need longer ground where do I get a longer one from?

Question M54 long block. What does it come with?

I have a question regarding a long block replacement for an M54 engine. What does it come with? Is for example the VANOS unit included? What about the cams?

Thanks,

Max speed ever recorded is stored in the DME. Also max RPMs together with how long the engine spent over the limit. It might store other things but this is what I am aware of.
