F32 US tail lights to trade for EU tails....

Hi US Guys,

I have a German friend in Munich who is taking delivery of his brand new M4 this week!! He wants US tail lights(red turn signals) from a 4er Coupe (428i/435i/M4).

IF anyone in Germany has a US spec car and wants the euro Yellow turn signals... my buddy with willing to trad straight up. Your tails for his. Just come to Munich and will do the work.

Please send me a PM and I will put you in touch with my friend.


Thanks,
Dackel

I don't get why Europe must have them yellow.

Where can I buy the red ones, instead BMW?

Yellow turn signals are EU law.

US tail lights INSTALLED! :)

Well... my buddy couldn't wait any longer... so he just bit the bullet and bought US spec tail lights for ~400 euros for the pair.

The US lights look so much better on his S.O. M4. Have a look for yourself. I'm holding the EU tails, installed on the car is the US tail lights.

looks much better Dackelone!

Shame we can't just do something about that yellow reflector bit rather than buy a whole new light :/

He can still use the yellow indicator bulb in the red tail light housing right?

My buddy bought a yellow LED turn signal bulb off of ebay.de

I like the results.

So why didn't BMW do this from the beginning like previous models..... e.g. E82

Guess i'm gonna have to eventually change my tail lights.

If anyone wants to swap let me know

Greetings from the US.
I am currently looking to get the euro spec for my AW 335. I do not like the red turn signal because it is harder to see during the daytime.
Just writing here because i thought it is funny that i am trying to get the euro spec and vice versa for you guys
