Wires inside the turn signal housing?

Sounds like I will have to make a trip to my service department!

My badge is 520i, but I have sent a fellow North American Fester and E39 owner a "518i" badge from an E34 for his 540i.

Who was your contact for the Euro Lenses? (I think you e-mailed me on that, but I lost it somewhere in my archives) I need to order my lenses and the other parts from him.
And Patrick, we don't need pics of the wiring...........That's not the difference!
More suspense for Jack and Tyrone! Don't worry, I'll reveal if it works.........

Mystery screws

I just purchased an OEM wing for my wagon and have a question. The wing has double stick tape preapplied, a tube of adhesive sealer and two small panhead screws. Where do these screws go? I'm assuming up through thehatch into the wing. The instuctions are in German so until I find an English to German dictionary I'm clueless.

Hi

When I had this roof tip spoiler fitted to my car, I took it to a trusted bodyshop and they simply used the adhesives they are able to use within the industry/trade to just 'glue' mine in place. Four years later, it's 100% fine and it isn't about to come away!

The double sided tape you have? I guess it's deemed strong enough to hold the spoiler and I'd assume the screws are meant to go 'somewhere' - as it's oem, perhaps ask at your local BMW dealer ?!

Cheers, Dennis!
