Sorry OP, but you're doing it all wrong...

Smoked? No!

LED? No!

You have a facelifted sedan - this is the proper kit, and it's even on sale this month (OEM, R/C/R) -

LED tails can look amazing if they are high quality. Google images is probably a good place to start.

- OEM R/C/R will give you zero issues, have the best fitment, never fade, etc

- DEPO R/C/R are the next alternative. They aren't bad and a good choice if you can't afford oem

- Eagle Eye LEDs look nice but are plagued with burnt out leds. The second set I have are good so far after 4 years with no issues.


try khoalty.com for the lights

I have DEPO r/c/r. Fitment isn't bad; I'd only replace them if I found a set of used oem r/c/rs.

As for the smoked ... I'm always a big fan of people who want to reduce the light output of their vehicle for style's sake.

This kit is ridiculous.
And he specifically asked about LED tails. Why would you tell him different?

Ridiculous huh? LOL! This is the proper kit for a facelifted sedan. OEM R/C/R...it doesn't get any better for a 2002-2005 E46 sedan.

You guys go ahead and slap on the Chinese made garbage taillights When they fail, fade, dim, fog up, bulb errors, etc., don't bother posting your issues/complaints...we don't want to hear it..

Is it the proper kit for somebody asking about LED tails?

No

I guess the LED tail lights are safer than the murdered/blacked out tail lights that you have.
