BMW E36 Tail Light Install / Replacement DIY

Most people who drive the E36 get rid of the sore looking amber lights all around, including the tail lights, which require replacing the entire assembly and not just the amber part (since the tails are one piece).  We offer them at a ridiculously low price, and they are high quality as all of our mods are, and the install is very straightforward and simple, only requiring probably 20 minutes for the total install and getting them to have OEM fitment.

Removing and installing or replacing left or right taillight (sedan/coupé/convertible)

Open your trunk and rotate clip through 90° and remove black lamp cover.

Pull off connector. Unscrew nuts and remove taillight assembly by pulling out.

Install is reverse, pretty easy huh?

    I need the circuit board (if it comes alone, or the whole assembly) for the left rear tail light (brake light out) of my 1999 BMW 328 ica.
    Thx.
