LCI tails

Is it possible to upgrade to the new LCI tails? If so, how big of a job?

Im looking into this myself.

I would imagine if the mountings and plugs are the same it would be a swap and code job at the very most.

It's been covered, requires the following:

New set of tail lights
New set of seals for the tail lights
New wiring to BDC (or just re pin)
Coding for module

It's possible, many people in Russia and UK have done it already.... but so far no vendor carries these lights in USA I have been ready to do it, but so far no luck with parts...
