okay..I just found out my dad, for some REALLY odd reason has a set of E36 Tail lights....I was wondering if there's any way that I would be able to fit them on my E30. I drive a '88 325i

well u can put them in but everything has to been molded and custom fit to actually fit! but e36 lights would loox good !

I think its been done, it probably takes a deal of fabrication

some reason i don't think it'll look good....
the e36 tailights won't go with the e30 back too much... i can't imagine it looking good at all...
but if u think it looks good. all the power to you... someone should photochop it and see how it might look like

I"m guessing you saw the post..haha

but lets not start a cross-board member bashing session here.

anyways....I have some other questions about lights and stuff.

I don't like the side reflectors on my bumpers, is there a way I can solve this problem? some sort of masking or something?

wut colour rims go good with silver?

I like the all red taillights on the E30, so go with that.
as for the reflectors, you can try for clear sides or tint them black and have them match the bumpers color

I was thinking if removing the bulbs or disconnecting the light and then masking them..but I couldn't figure out how the hell I could mask them w/o making it look obvious.

Might be illegal to have no sidemarkers / parking lights ...

Honestly i hate the euros for bmws, i love the the white top and red bottom. These are the only ones i would probubly use. Well, i do use the red ones, but if i had a black bmw i would use the blackouts and the white i wouldnt know what color would go good with it?
