Anyone have difficulty with installation of 3rd brake light ? All went as expected until mounting the chrome housing back in place. The 2 bolts keep wanting to cross thread. Any mod needs done like I'm thinking opening up the torx holes a little. OEM BMW part, but the fit and finish more resembles an aftermarket part. Doesn't seem like BMW's finest moment.

I've always had difficulty reinserting those screws when I've had to remove them. Just takes patience...and getting the alignment right.
