    e30 tail lights

    Iíve owned and looked at many e30s, and Iím looking to buy a 1991 325iC. Well the pictures the owner has up have the earlier style tail lights on it, and I was for certain BMW changed them in 1988, but he claims itís a 1991 and that the tail lights are original, I donít doubt him on it since the car has airbags and the taillights are pretty hard to swap. Iím curious if anyone can tell me why this 1991 BMW has the early model tail lights and if my facts are just wrong for the tail lights. Iíve looked around and canít find much on the tail lights besides that the M3 stuck with the early ones. Thanks!

    but in short,
    for the American Market verts got facelifted later than coupes:

      So it is a 1991! Good to know because he said the car ran and drive well, so if he lied about the year I was curious as to what else he was lying about...hm. Thanks!

        Yep, 91 was an interesting year. The first half, you have the verts with older bumpers and tail lights, from July (or could be August) on, you have the facelifted ones. It creates confusion, since most people thinks all 91s are facelifted.....
