Euro Rear indicator lights

Hi guys,

I remember that on the E61/E60 5 series, there was a difference between the US and the European version of the rear turn signal lights - US was red LED and Euro was orange LED.

It his video:

It seems like the M3 has orange LED turn signals displayed at 18 seconds into the video (or it could be just me). If thats the case, anyone know who might have these? (For the E90)

I'm guessing that they upgraded them.

If you want them IND or EAS has them

Is it possible to switch the rear indicator light colour from red (North America) to the PROPER colour of amber / orange? European models are amber.

I cannot stand red indicator lights. They have also been shown to be less conspicuous.

It's OEM, I think only the E90s has red turn indicator lights.

Incorrect....

All LCI cars have red turn signals....in addition to the pre LCI E90s

You can obtain Euro Spec ones both for all E9Xs and the only difference will be that blinkers will flash amber.... Great mod IMO

Not all LCI cars do. The E63 LCI had amber blinkers here in the US. OP, you can order the Euro taillights from most vendors. Check the links in my sig for a pictures and videos of them installed.
