First off... the BMW lights. i'm not sure if this is the same for your car, but for the escorts.... i beleive they fit, you might have to do a bit of fabbing, but i dont think so. you just need to make a bracket to hold the lights

Secondly.. the taillight tinting. what color are you gonna tint them?? if u tint them black, try VHT Nite Shades paint. that's what it's designed for.. although it's not legal on roads... so u gotta make sure ur willing to go this route..

If u tint them another color (Red is a common color) then use Testors Translucent (important) Candy Apple Red...

that's what i used. the can is small, about half the size of regular spray panit/ i just got one, and painted my taillights, and think it looks half decent.

you have a 99 which is a 3d gen.

The bmw lights are only meant for the the 2nd gen, which is 91-96. If you did do it on your car it would look weird.
