LCI style tails for 08 sedan?

Anyone know if LCI style tails for an 08 sedan exist? Or even all red tails (not necessarily led tail lights)?

Yes, you can use OEM LCI taillights on an '08 sedan, but you have to swap out your trunk lid. If that's too much to swallow, then you can buy pre-LCI Black Line lights for a slightly different look. They are OEM as well.

Lamin-x will make your tail lights all red for cheap

Best thing to do is a trunk lid + LCI light swap though but it's a little pricier.

Yea I def dont want to go the rout of swapping the trunk. Not really a fan of the smoked blackline look either. Im surprised no one makes a simple all red/lci style tail for pre 2009 sedans.

Christmas came early as I was lucky enough to find a wrecked LCI E90 328 rear at a local scrap yard...

Conversion here we come...

Not for the faint of heart, but if you're daring enough this product by VHT is really excellent.

I used it on my X5 4.6is and it really made the car look 10 years younger which is amazing considering what a subtle difference it actually is.
