Default '04 SE - A few questions - Taillights, Effects kits, Rims

I am a noob to this forum, but have been on car forums for a few years now. A search of the forums didn't turn up an answer to this question -- and the Your Ride forum has far too many pics for me to look through one by one. So, I'm asking...

Would it be OK to change (and will it work) from the striped taillights on my '04 SE to the smooth taillights of what I think is the SSE or GXP? I just traded a '00 328i w/ high mileage for the Bonneville. Since I've never owned a Bonneville, I'm just starting to learn. I like the car, but dislike the striped lights.

Also, does anyone know of a front air dam and side skirts for the '04 Bonneville? I'd like to see some pics, but haven't found any searching the normal car sites.

Lastly, I'm interested in seeing some different wheels on the '04 style Bonneville. I have been looked at the "official wheel thread" here, but it doesn't have many pics. I'm interested in 18" non-bling rims for my car. I like the newer 17" 5-spokes on the Grand Prix, but am not sure they will fit my car.

THANKS to all for your consideration!

you can get 05 SLE/GXP tailligts for your car, another member here has done it.. ill try to dig up the pics for you.. Its a plug and play swap

there are no aftermarket bodykits/airdams available, your only option would be to upgrade your body cladding and or bumpers with that of an SLE/SSEi or GXP

Wheels - try www.tirerack.com
not many 00+ folks have aftermarket wheels here yet

found the GXP light pic

The taillights shown are MUCH nicer (IMO) than what'* on my car. Now, to locate some pre-owned taillights for my car... THANKS!

Well, i can get my hands on some GXP SMOOTH looking tail lights if you like. I can tell you one thing, they are not cheap. Let me know if you want them.
