If they worked before you put in the new bulbs and not after, you may have blown the fuses. The fuses are for a 55 Watt halogen bulb. Many people replace them with 100 watt bulbs which blow the two fuses. Replace the 7.5 amp fuses with 10 amp fuses, but nothing bigger or you could damage the wiring if you get a short.
Pretty much the fuses. BMW runs "home runs" to each light and has a fuse to protect it. On the E36 models there was a problem with the wire harness where it comes into the truck. The harness gets work and may cause a short. I would inspect the harness in the trunk area as well as taking care of the fuses.
give the stater motor a whack with a hammer if not that the its your battery its dead just because your lights widows and all work bmw cars are funny that way they require alot of power on initial start up
You should check the wiring loom on the left trunk hinge. It gets damaged very often on these bmw's you won't be able to see if there is damage from outside, you need to pull the protective rubber covering pretty far down to inspect.
If it's damaged any decent audio shop can repair it (or you can do it yourself if you're good at soldering)
after it's fixed replace any burnt fuses and it should be ok
