He said it offered a choice of aftermarket/retrofit rear lights. That did the trick. So if anyone else runs into the same problem, the BMW dealers do have the capability to code the LCI tail lights to pre LCI cars.

@tom - was this necessary to upgrade to FRM3 considering you guys can now code FRM2 modules for LCI tail lights as in your post above?
