Lighting question - Taillights (and brakelights?)

OK here is another lighting question which you may think I am obsessed with lighting. (Yes, I can confirm that I am. )

A little help is needed here too - are taillights and brakelights to be the same thing? I always assumed they were. I seen a pic from High Performance Bulbs where the BMW E90/E92 taillights are white. I always thought that they are supposed to be red. If the taillights and brakelights are seperate light entities in the same housing, then I would be looking for a red LED solution too for the brake lights. If they are not, then I believe by law I must have a red solution.

I am thinking of replacing the taillights for my 2009 E92 X-Drive with the following - if it is available from these manufacturers that I know of. I want something that is bright, but I do not want my lights blinding other drivers.

High Performance Bulbs - confirmed they have a taillight solution for my E92
Underground Euros - unconfirmed for my E92
Lux 8 - unconfirmed for my E92

I have a few of High Performance Bulbs products and have always been pleased with the results.

I should also ask - if I replace the taillight (and brakelight?), how easy or difficult would it be to access the lights for replacement?

Thanks everyone in advance for your input.
Is it me, or is it the Bimmer?
