Smile celis lights

you might want to check and make sure that the foam seal is around the light, i got a pair a few months back and it did the same thing to me, turned out some how one of the tail lights i recieved had no foam seal. wish you the best

Never done this on a BMW, but on other cars I have owned, this is a sign you need to replace the foam gaskets. I'd order a new one, and be very careful with the installation to ensure a good fit.
