Not worth 300 bucks, just a waste of money. Plus it's something Mexicans would do. :/ just heads up you wouldn't look "cool"

There is a reason for that.

Less is more these days. If you do own an m3, keep it stock. If you absolutly have to have some new tailights, do an OEM LED retrofit or buy some of these.

OP, dont buy those tails. It will look really hideous in our cars. Keep it subtle with clear/RED or LEDs. Eagle Eye LEDs if not the OEMs.

I refuse to help you in this endeavor, and I care enough to post that I'm not going to help you.

I live in Canada so going to the US will be pointless lol.

I see that the many of the tail lights have various years listed for fitment. i see some that says 99-02 and some 99-03 etc. when exactly did the minor changes take place in the tail light fitment?

It happened when the e46's got the new face lift design. 98/99-01/02 is "preface lift".. 2002 and up is "facelift". Easiest way to spot this is the look of the headlights

JUST TO BE CLEAR, since it seems you have a coupe I'm not sure if this applies to you but with whatever taillight you go with(and for the sake of the e46 gods don't go with your initial choice) make sure the taillights you purchase say COUPE.
