    I would imagine someone here has gotten the Eagle Eye LED tails to work in a coupe. Honestly, I would still go the OEM route because the quality is so much higher than Eagle Eye. They cost more yes, but they have the outer LED bands that the Eagle Eyes don't. I would have gone OEM but BMW didn't make the LED tails for sedans.
    I'm thinking you're right about someone fitting EE tails to LCI coupe. I also like the idea of smoked clears for my silbergrau car, but I'll choose quality oem over that.

    Just trying to locate a part out car and a decent price on the tails. Are the harness bits from an M the same as LCI ZHP? Anyone....?

    Check that tail light part number on realoem for a coupe and the m3 and see if they match

    Look over at E46Fanatics in the exterior part outs section of the classifieds, or check/call local junkyards.

    Just did, both my car and a randomly selected 07/2005 BMW M3 have the same tail light part numbers:

    63216920700 - Right

    WARNING!! Epic fail of ULO OEM product!! Last December, I spent the proper money, bought the ULO OEM set of tail lights from TMS. When I finally got time to put them on, here is what I got:

    The upper edge is rubbing against the trunk recess and at the bottom there is a HUGE gap between the lens edge and the trunk frame. This is totally unacceptable for OEM products! I bet DEPO / TYC have much better fitment in this regard. Took a close look at the top edge and bottom edge, here is what I found:

    It turns out the outer lens was not glued onto the housing properly. It was shifted up a few millimeters relative to the housing. That few mm's make BIG difference on the car. I am even scared to put it on my car because I am worried the rubbing at the top will eventually scrape paint off my trunk.

    Suspecting a bad copy, I ordered another set from TMS, still the same thing. All other lights are good though. It makes me think, the alignment of their assembly line must be off for some reason. And when I checked the production date of these two sets, their production date/time are literally within 3 minutes:

    Set #1:
    -----------
    12:20:46
    13.07.12

    Set #2:
    -----------
    12:23:50
    13.07.12


    Did anyone bought ULO tail lights and ran into the same problem? If your set is all good, could you post your production date here? I hope they have corrected the problem ever since, otherwise we are pretty stuck with aftermarket parts? I guess Genuine BMW parts will be the same but I will try them out as the last resort.

    How did you get production times and dates??? The search skills are strong with this one!

    Did they actually stamp it on the product?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.
