You can't do that. What you saw were pictures of an early model e30 that had been converted to plastic bumpers. The bumpers are the only things that can be changed, not the tail lights.

You can't put a rear plastic bumper on an early model without fabrication.

This e30 is now being parted out. NO body panels are for sale, bumpers/fenders/hood/mirrors/valance or front turn signals. Everything else is up for grabs. Euro grills/cluster are sold, suspension/brakes/LSD/rear tails are already spoken for.

Cut the rear clip off of a 88 and up and weld it on your car. No easy way to do it. Whats wrong with the early taillights anyway? I did the all red lenses on mine and love em.
