HELP!Prefacelift tail lights into facelifted e46 ?

So I just purchased a pair of LED Eagle Eye tails for my 02 325i sedan. When I got home to install them I noticed my connector was alot smaller than the one the Eagle eye tail lights came with. So I did some research and found that I had purchased pre facelift tail lights instead of facelift tail lights. Now my question: Is there a way to connect and fit them correctly or should I sell them and try to find ones that will fit?

Angry

Sorry to revive an old thread... But I just made the same mistake, impulse buy on ECS tuning for a scratch and dent, realized when I got them they were the wrong tail lights ... Any solutions?

you could diy splice the wires to make it work. but it's better to just exchange them with ECS

Thanks for the reply. I figured out how to splice it in after sitting and staring at pictures of pre-facelift and post-facelift bulb holders. I probably could have exchanged them, but I was impatient (didn't want to wait for shipping both ways), and I actually like the clear/red vs. the newer red/clear/red lenses.
