ordered my 2002 clear rears today hope they fit!
 
Ordered them from maximillion imports.
Since a bunch of people have asked this question here.. "will these fit on pre-2002 models?"
I figured I would be the guinney pig.. I have a 2000 328i and I am going to give it a go and see if they will work..
I'll post pics when they arrive and I install..I hope it works :confused:

Good luck! I hope they work...


keep us posted! :smile:

Hate to be the cynic but without modifying a lot of stuff I'm pretty sure they don't fit. I was under the impression that the bolt pattern is completly different. Have you compared pics of the bolts on them?

I'm 100% positive they don't fit. Sorry. I tried to put my old 2002 clears on my friends 2000 and it was even close. I'm assuming all the others are the same.

I have no idea..
I will find out in two weeks.. why would the bolt pattern change.. the lights are the same exact size :dunno:

Karl 04-16-2002 03:50 PM

Any chance that you can order just the reverse lenses?

They aren't the same size I don't belive. They are shaped the same, yes. But the 2002s are larger. And obviously the fronts have a different shape completely. The side markers might fit. :)

Yes, you can. Call Maximillian @ 800-950-2002. Paul or Matt can help you out.

ism409 04-16-2002 03:52 PM

not fronts.. I do not like the fronts.. just the rears

Check your email. You may be able to sell them quickly. ;)

ism409 04-16-2002 03:57 PM

you've got mail back :D

Karl 04-16-2002 03:59 PM

Hey, guys, not to be finicky about this or anything... but keep the "check your email" stuff to email or PM only, I hate getting notification emails when the new post is just "check your email!".

I just got off the phone with maximillion imports and caught them before they faxed the order!!! thanks so much cyclone for the heads up you saved me a lot of grief.. I guess I will just have to settle for the ones everyone else is running..

No problem. Glad I could help.

Karl 04-16-2002 08:14 PM

No problem guys... also just trying to keep the board clutter down, just because we're stuck to a collapsed forum view now, doesn't mean that the old rules don't apply.

prcentauri 04-16-2002 08:25 PM

hey. they won't fit your car. sorry. some of us have tried the install - same shape different size. if you try to send them back to Maximillian and they don't take them back I'll buy them from you i guess.

prcentauri 04-16-2002 08:27 PM

nevermind . i see they didnt get them for you yet.
