***Z4 in need of tail lights***

My lovely 2003 Z4 was cruelly vandalized about a week ago and as a result i will unfortunately have to replace both tail lights. I was hoping not to have to go through the dealer and pay a ridiculous amount of money for new lights. Any ideas of where i may find some reasonably priced ones?

I have some 2003 tail lights in great condition I'd let go for fairly cheap, but unfortunately I'm overseas for the next few months.

If you have to replace them, look at getting the 2005 lights (no amber).

Tischer has them for $165.00 each: http://getbmwparts.com/

Right light: 63217165722
Left light: 63217165723

The lights are held in with two nuts. Unplug the electrical connectors, remove the two nuts located next to the connectors and the light assembly just falls out of the car.... Should take all of 30 minutes to replace.

Furthermore, does legality establish morality?

I would check out the motors section on ebay. I find all kinds of great parts for 2004 Z4 there and get a great price on them also. Sorry to hear about your car. But remember carma is a great thing. What goes around comes around ! They will get it back in spades !

This guy might be a bit expensive but you might save a bit if you haggle with him. Found on Craigslist just by luck today: http://macon.craigslist.org/pts/3345320799.html Good Luck
