I broke a tab

so now I need to replace a bulb socket on my rears.


I'm looking at the parts options and there are some differences based on the type of tail lights I have

I'm looking at this page of realeom.com
http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...55&hg=63&fg=20

it says For vehicles with White direction indicator lights

here are a couple pictures of the rear of my car. Do I have white indicator lights? They look white, but then again, I can see amber in there too.



sorry for such stupid questions.

Thanks

Not at all, that's why we're here. Anyway, yes you have the white lights. They are referring to the lens color, not the amber bulbs inside.

The bulb sockets are nearly identical with one very minor difference: the sockets for "amber lights" have 180 degree earholes for the standard clear bulbs; yours require offset earholes to accommodate the amber bulb.
