I've done it a few times and I am pretty sure all E92s are the same. If I remember correctly it is 3 nuts on the each tail light and then one nut with a bracket that holds on the piece that going on the trunk.

Sorry everyone...I should have said new tires. Getting Michelin Pilot super sports. Keeping the 313's. Alignment must be done at Brian Harris for $135. Tires being installed at Plantation on Highland...he has that force balance machine but he said only BMW can align a BMW.
