they say this is suitable for ALL? am I wrong.. I thought the sedans and coupes differ And I don't think I've ever seen a 2002+ 323.. I don't think the seller has a clue.. Check out our sponsors.. at the very least stay away from this seller IMO.

you should get that cleared up.. i'm not sure of the exact discrepancy on the website but make a point of spelling out exactly what you require. you most definitely need the facelifted side markers!

Do not buy from ebay. I bought my tails from them and theres about a 1/2 inch gap around the whole light.

I'm not sure eBay should be completely dismissed. As with any place, it pays to be wary, but things can turn out fine with just a little homework. I bought my red/clear/red tails from eBay and the fit and finish were perfect (for $168 in my case for my '03 325I 4dr).
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT
Beforehand I did e-mail with questions, and only when I got accurate, complete responses did I go ahead an pull the trigger.
I'm real happy with the lights, made by DEPO - perfect fit as said, and no leaking/fogging, etc. issues.

Good luck!

Why would you pay $168 for Ebay tails when you can get them for $10 more at Jlevi...

If you are going with aftermarket tails, I urge you to take a look at our selection of DEPO clears. We guarantee fitment and quality so if you are unhappy with them you can just send them back for a refund

We unfortunately do not carry sidemarkers for your car at this time.

Cuz I'm REALLY cheap?
Seriously, until recently I didn't know about Jlevi but they obviously have good deals, etc. so I'll be definitely checking them out first when I research purchases...
My point, though, is that not everything out of eBay is bad...

Nick,

Could you please let me know how long it usually takes for delivery? I bought a set of LED tails for my sedan and it's been 10 days already. Thanks.
