2000 323ci convertible tail light interchangability
Hi -- new here, tried to research the forum without luck, hope this isn't out of line.
I have a 2000 323ci convertible (E46) that's very standard. The right tail light (not the part that's on the trunk lid, but the part that's on the rear quarter panel) is broken and needs to be replaced. I poked around in the trunk and am reasonably sure I can do this myself, but I need to buy a replacement. The problem here is that lots of available replacements are not specified as to whether they are usable on a convertible. I don't know enough about the car to know if the tail lights would be different -- but the parts marked "323ci tail light" look right. I can, of course, sell my first born son (and a few pints of blood) and get the part from BMW, but I'd prefer to avoid that route if possible.
Thanks -- Nought
