Exclamation Help: Facelift tail lights for pre facelift cars.

Hey guys, I purchased a pair of facelift tailights for my prefacelift 2000 323i. The seller (BrakeMyWallet) was even nice enough to install them in my car. They look really clean. However, we didnt instal the reverse lights, because my bulb holder wouldnt fit the reverse part of the light. Has anyone ever had this problem? We were thinking of cutting a part of the bulb holder off, but I was wondering if anyone found any other solutions, and if thats the only solution can someone help me out. Thanks guys.

By the way, BrakeMyWallet is a great seller, and would recommend him.

A picture would help, although I think you will just need to get a facelift sedan bulb holder.

I could be wrong, but I kinda remember some vendor selling the facelifted taillights, and noted that if you wanted to add them to prefacelifted cars you needed some sort of adaptor? Also, the lights needed to be reprogrammed by the dealership?
