In Reply to: Side Markers : are there two different kinds ? posted by Ned on November 28, 1999 at 10:06:34:
: I've seen on other e30 m3's sidemarker is the same, or what looks like the same ones, as the ones on the e36's. The side markers on my 91 m3 is the ones that attaches to the both, front and rear, bumper moldings.
: Do these owners with the e36 markers installed it themselves ? I just received the Nov/Dec issue of Performance BMW magazine and it seems that all the e30 m3's in the mag are the ones with the e36 markers. And there is no trace of any side marker removal in the bumper moldings. ??????
The sidemarkers on the Euro M3's are like the early E36 sidemarkers that go on the fenders. The euro M3's don't have the longer amber and red ones in the bumper like the US ones do (from what I've observed). There is a plastic strip available from BMW that fills in the channels in the bumpers over the sidemarkers.
