eBay has LED taillights for wagons in all sorts of flavors - clear, smoked, crystal. Quality varies, I'm sure. If you don't see what you want on U.S. eBay, try U.K. or Germany eBay. Most of the vendors are overseas. I bought a set of red/smoked w/standard bulbs from Germany, and they got here pretty quickly. I don't think any of the usual Stateside vendors carry LED tails for wagons.

Cool, thanks for the reply. I saw the ones on ebay but im always worried about the quality. Im shooting for ones that came in the later e46's that are factory but have a more updated look.

Keep looking, they exist. Took me 9 months to find one. You might need to settle for an automatic and do a gearbox swap.

That looks very pretty in white.
Did you look into what it would take to swap in the twin turbo from 335?

My Ride: 2001 325iT
I found my 2001 325iT by mistake! I wasn't even looking for it, but there she was, for sale by the side of the road. Checked her out and bought it. Just did my VANOS and she's running like a top. Manual, RWD. Love it. I'm so undecided on what to do for my first mod. Part of me wants to do the wheels right away (17" M-Contours on it now) but I think I'm going to do lights. Going to go full D2S HIDs. Then get the fog lights swapped out. After that, not sure. I think interior LED light upgrade (cheap and seems to be a nice look) and then tail and side markers. (Can't decide if I should go LED or just crystal look. Any input on that? (LED vs Crystal) I'm leaning towards Crystal.

I thought that looked familiar to the one from Concorde Motorsports. I was wondering if there could possibly be another exactly the same!

Awesome car!

Yes, it's the same car, only now it has an additional set of snow tires and alloys, a new clutch, several services, and a lot of cleaning. Wish he wasn't selling it, wish I could take it over, but I already have a nice Touring. Someone will get a nice car.

There was one on Craigslist out on Long Island optioned exactly like the blue one, but white with black leather. Had much higher miles, and he was proceeding to mod it out, which he probably has by now.

Just did my wheels

My first upgrade on my 2001 325iT. What do you think?

Went from 17" M-Contour repls (Blizzaks on them) to 18" Sport Edition SE-14s with Yokohama S-Drives. I know I could have gone 19", but I'll be slamming it and didn't want to break the bank just on wheels and rubber. These rims may end up as my winter rims next season, who knows...
