gotta say prob the best mod you can do for looks on a pre LCI, just so much nicer than the old lights


Thanks Lee for taking the time to reply. I know you put these on a while ago and they do look the nuts and sooooo much nicer! Why did yours suddenly start thowing up error codes and therefore Simon had to return? I contacted BMW today and not had a reply yet so lets see what they say!!

One of my favourite mods, don't get hung up on the non availability of the retrofit kit, Speak with Simon, i was the first to have these done.

Hi thats ok, both myself and Minda with the Blue M5 had these fitted last year, its a common error you get a little warning light that taillight is out, pops up for few seconds on startup, then goes, you just ignore it as they are fine. I only had this happen 4 or 5 times in all the time i had fitted. Simon has updated the coding again with a cure, This is reason bmw not doing kit now as they havent figured it out, so just go to simon for it, he knows these cars inside out, mention both mine and Mindas cars and you want the same kit basically.

I'm in USA and got the US version.

I got the full kit for about $1050 from getbmwparts.

I paid someone $100 to install and a little over $100 for coding with Vic from Bimmercoder.

Only thing that doesnt work is my welcome lights.

From my understanding the Euro version of the tails will allow the welcome lights to work.

What's the bdc?

I'm in Europe so cannot say for sure of prices now since brexit taxes all , based on if you order from Germany or find directly in the UK, it cost me 800Euro for the parts including the 4 plastics and 50E installation and coding (this will probably be more in the UK as I am having a friend do it), so should cost you about 800-950.

I paid approx 650 (lights, gutters, cable and pins) from Cotswold BMW which includes their online discount and paid a guy 100 to remote code them and add full screen carplay.
