Now you have the FRM-1-Footwell module.
Upgrade to LCI taillights...you need the FRM-3- + coding !

FRM3 is not needed. You can code an FRM2 module.

+1. US models never came with FRM1 modules, only FRM2 & FRM3.

BMW dealers are only equipped to program FRM3 modules, independents and those equipped with autologic coding tool can program FRM2 modules.

I'm looking to upgrade to LCI, would be interested to know specifically what you are referring to. Is it not just a plug and play replacement?

EAS sells a PnP upgrade. I bought mine from them. Its just the lights and the harnesses to PnP them (well, at least on the e93/92)

You can just indy code the car to turn off the bulb error/flickering.

We made a thread about this some time ago, this should help:



Detailed FAQ can be found here:

▀▄ eas - 2011 LCI Taillight Retrofit Overview - Q&A
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=386823

The LCI Taillight upgrades are PnP, just need coding afterwards. Let me know if you should need additional help and I'll be happy to assist.

Thanks to you both! I ran a search for LCI upgrade, and the results were too much to weed through, I appreciate the direct link.
