Back to what's important... You can't create a "the beast is home" thread and not post a bunch of photos. That's in direct violation of rule number 1!

They also sell some oem style smoked ones that are pretty nice too. But I agree with Karl, not really to fond of the current tails in there.

not sure what hes gonna do.


we think the car came from factory with the red/clear tails but PO changed em to these ( we ran the vin, sports pkg FTW)

normally i dislike non oem style tails for bmws but i dont these ones

my brother loves the red/clears but i think he likes these too. guess we'll see in time of which ones he chooses lol
