ordered my 2002 clear rears today hope they fit!

Ordered them from maximillion imports.
Since a bunch of people have asked this question here.. "will these fit on pre-2002 models?"
I figured I would be the guinney pig.. I have a 2000 328i and I am going to give it a go and see if they will work..
I'll post pics when they arrive and I install..I hope it works

Hate to be the cynic but without modifying a lot of stuff I'm pretty sure they don't fit. I was under the impression that the bolt pattern is completly different. Have you compared pics of the bolts on them?

I'm 100% positive they don't fit. Sorry. I tried to put my old 2002 clears on my friends 2000 and it was even close. I'm assuming all the others are the same.

They aren't the same size I don't belive. They are shaped the same, yes. But the 2002s are larger. And obviously the fronts have a different shape completely. The side markers might fit.

Hey, guys, not to be finicky about this or anything... but keep the "check your email" stuff to email or PM only, I hate getting notification emails when the new post is just "check your email!".

No problem guys... also just trying to keep the board clutter down, just because we're stuck to a collapsed forum view now, doesn't mean that the old rules don't apply.
