    Hi, simple one...can anyone recommend where to get a new rear LED light assembly - passenger side. (2004 Coupe E46 M3)

    The one i have looks like its had water ingress (Misted inside) and some of the LED lights stopped working when daytime running mode was used. Brake lights also.

    Now all the LEDs have died.

    Needs to be new, high quality and Canbus-error free.

    Seeing some online but really not sure who to use / trust.

    I'm assuming OEM is no longer avail from BMW?

    Thanks
    Mojo

    They are available from Bmw but hugely expensive as you can imagine.

    I had a similar issue and chose the eBay route for a 2nd hand replacement. Unfortunately the gamble hasn’t paid off as this one has also misted up. I’m still undecided what to do next.

    I got a used unmarked genuine one off German ebay was way cheaper than UK one. Maybe also search for e46 330i convertible rear lights 99% sure they are the same and don’t carry the M3 mark up

    He has a Coupe, Convertible & Coupe are different :)

    No difference in an M3 Convertible or Coupe to a 'lesser' model, but you have to make sure you don't put a Convertible light on a Coupe for example

    They are about £240 each new from BMW, before any discounts.

    Mine was misted up and stopped working .There was moisture getting through where the bonding of the lens had started to fail & there was a slight gap.I managed to use a small heater to dry it out,then re-sealed with clear silicone & some glue & it all works again now
