Hi what are the correct little bulbs for the license plate surrond lights on my '73? One is brighter than the other now. Thanks.

The oem bulbs are Osram, available from Bimmer Parts Co., Maximillian Importing, most 2002 parts companies and of course the dealer, you can use Sylvania and you'll need to get "DE3423" for license lamps. Get them as a pair and renew both, but check the assemblies first, they do corrode. There is a slotted screw to remove at the front of the lens, pull the lens off and take a good look where the bulbs fit; also, look at the rear (behind the license plate) where the wires feed into the assembly, basically check for brittle wiring, corosion, etc..I ordered a complete set of oem bulbs (rear light clusters and license lamp, just to have as spares) for my '74 2002 from Bimmer Parts Co., a few months ago, the Sylvania's you should be able to get at most auto parts stores.
