Default R53 tail lights...white signals? oem #63210305538

i have a ?

for christmas my lady has decided to buy me a car part and I've chosen some tail lights. i know which ones i want but i cant seem to find anyone selling them. they're a 02-04 oem tail light. i believe part #63210305538. what's different on these compared with the ones i have now is the white turn signal/indicator light instead the normal amber color. ive been told these are possibly euro spec? maybe some of you euro guys can help me out on this if that's true.

here's a pic

no idea. those are first gen (02-04) the facelift (05-06) ones are cool too. looks even cooler with them since you'll have more reverse lighting.

i've thought about the face lift one's i like them. i really like the idea of the earlier euro ones though since you don't see them much. ill settle for the face lift ones if the search for these falls through

NewMINIStuff in the UK has it listed on their website: http://www.newministuff.com/new/shop...uctshow&id=314

They are not exactly "Euro spec". In the US, it wasn't available as a new car option but they were sold by dealers as an accessory retrofit.

Another UK vendor: http://www.minigenuineparts.co.uk/mi...ar_Lights.html

I've ordered from NewMINIStuff a few times. They are fairly well known in the MINI community.

I got mine on German Ebay from a dealer in Munich for €69 IIRC. I was lucky though, as they only ship within Germany and I had a friend living in Germany at that time...

I'm pretty sure I bought the last set that was available in the U.S. They were at a dealer in Oklahoma...

...coopersport.com used to have a set listed, not sure if they were factory or aftermarket...and I remember seeing some on eBay before I bought this set. Good luck!

Edit: here's a set...http://www.ebay.com/itm/MINI-COOPER-...2d2795&vxp=mtr
...the part number is different because it includes the clear 3rd brake light.

Turn signal, they're pre-facelift lights...
