Usually BMW tail lights have one part on the rear fender side and one on the trunk lid, the part on the fender being thicker and ending higher up, but the 2 parts usually being clearly separated at sharp angles on each side of the trunk lid edge which cuts the tail lights into 2.
They also have tape running around the edges of the lights, so that most likely hides the true outline.

If these were 18" though the result would approximately equal the E92 length.
The reason that isn't working is that the car is not perfectly straight across in relation to the camera. If it is pointing towards or away from the camera it will hide the length when measuring it.
