89 are new bumpers and new lights
few 88's have the new bumpers but have the new lights as far as i know

e46_lover. I have an '88 with the old bumpers but the eliptical lights. From what I understand, the late '88 built cars have the new bumpers. But I think the '87 cars still have the sealed beam lights and the chrome bumpers

I got an .87 325is....big chrome bumpers and bigger foglights...also have the silver lining around the windows. I think mine looks more sportier than the 88-90's....just my opinion..

is the taillights a different size or something the rest just seems easy to replace

You have seen mine in person, E46 Lover.
It is an '88 325is...under that kit but it had no-chromed bumpers
and had epilsode lights when I bought..I believe it's a later model in 88?
