I apologize if this has already been posted but someone on bimmerforums found some new glass taillights for the e36. I personally think they look sweet, and will porobably buy them right after I get my Fittipaldi's next week.

What do you guys think?

ya they look good, but like Indecisive said, they are gonna be easier to break....a stone or some stupid kid (for those of you who know about my stupid kid story a while ago) could just break it very easily...

Well, they're on the rear of your car, its not like you drive fast backwards, technically, you're more likely to break your glass headlights, if you have them.

That is the one thing that bothers me. These tailights come from procarparts.com and I have heard stories about how procarparts.com's previous euro tails makes the OBC detect a fault in the tail lights, and they would let in moisture. That isn't really something i want to mess with if I'm gonna spend $175 USD on them.

Now I can't decide!

I'd say those ones go well if you have the front crystal clear corners, heh.

I still prefer the OEM taillights!

The latest and greatest must be the tail lights made by Hella, based on the Celis technology.

I found this picture.

Left side is original - right side the Hella Celis.

What do you think ?

I would place these tail lights with the front Diamonds (clear) and maybe add the Angel eyes made by Hella aswell. I know a lot of people hate these due to the very bright background, but the fact remains, its the strongest and brigtest Angel eyes on the market.

Thanks for that picture Josephine, I like those tail lights but I think it wouldn't look like a bimmer as much with them, so I think I'm just gonna get the OEM clear tails.

I think I'd have to see an actual photograph of them on the car to judge them. That photoshopped picture probably doesn't do them justice.

There is a store in Pacific Mall, it has a new style of taillight, it looks nicer than the one you want, cost about 350 + tax but I still recom OEM, I saw some bimmers with those tail lights look like civic form the rear more than BMW
LOL

id have to see it in person that one picture is hard to judge by. but from what i gather it seems cool. but at the same time seems like its a little acura-TL-ish.. i dunno. :confused:

Hmmm...:idea:

the glass construction would be nice, to wire up 100W reverse lights without worrying about melting the housing....

well these are what I ended up buying. I just like the red/smoke better than the red/clear. I know most of you may disagree, but "to each his own."

I DONT KNOW IS U GYES HAVE SEEN THESE BUT I THINK THE LEXUS STYLE CLUSTERS LOOK THE DOGS. IF NOT I WOULD SAY GO FOR ALL CLEAR CLUSTERS AT THE REAR. NO SURE WHAT COLOUR UR CAR IS BUT CLEAR WILL GO WITH ANYTHING IF NOT TRY SMOKED CLUSTERS. I WILL TRY AND GET SOME LEZ

I think they look good, especially on silver or black.

those altezza's look like shit*shiner* . Those red/smoke I think are OK. I still prefer the OEM red/white. IMO they look the best
