I'm keen on the tail lights myself but like the rest of you would like to see one installed in Australia.

Went to the F10 launch last week and the new white headlamps are very cool! If only I could upgrade to those as well.

Gents my dealer has given me the following price... no surprise really:

Rear Lamps @ $713.50 (you will need one for left and one for right)
2 Retrofit cables - $99
FWM3 - $1034.40

Labor - $534.60

bmminiparts.co.uk will charge approx ~AUD$1080 with FWM excluding delivery... so excluding labour, it is about a third of the price, with labor, about half!

Crazy crazy crazy!

Mate,

Definitely agree with you.... did you end up seeing the rear tail lights in contrast with the old tail lights? Also... do you have rear fog lights working?

This is getting interesting. Alekshop and Tom@EAS, any discounts for a group buy? So far we have 2 committed buyers (myself and zenderm3), any more Oz guys?

FWIW I called my dealer today for a price, waiting on it now.

Also - what's the Footwell module?

It's to do with the lighting system, window operation,mirror functions etc. It'll probably need coding and an independent like me would have the necessary equipment to do it.

Hey Mate,

Do you know of anybody in Brisbane that could do this?

The Footwell module (FRM) is what is controlling headlight/taillights - this is the main module (along with 3 others) that are coded for proper operation.

If your shop is equipped with an autologic, please PM me your contact info so I can refer people your way for programming.

Andrew - we met at the BMWCCV event some time back.

I'm interested in the group order and since I'm in Melbourne would like to get them installed (by your team) as well.

PM me with details and next steps.

Those white LED headlamps on E92 LCI and F10 are awesome. About to order M3, very disappointed they are not an option. hoping that by the time it arrives, one of these aftermarket will have a solution.

Does anyone think that the E92 LCI LED headlamps would fit an M3?

No mate they won't - You'd need a new hood and bumper - considering it doesn't look like any further change to the M3 until after 2012... we probably won't see any more LCI on the M3 - but I'm not the most informed... I'm sure someone knows!

No, the bottom curvature of the headlamp is different than pre LCI models and would not fit the bumper cover.
