Euro E90 LCI Tails

I tried searching and only found a couple of posts for pre-LCI cars, but has anyone tried/or is able to source the side portions that have the amber turn signals like in Germany?

But if you check out this video around 1:16, the blinker seems to be amber in the euro tails:

I have them. I think they were totally worth it. They look exactly like your stock lights, but the LEDs blink yellow when you activate the turn signals. Are you willing to pay $399 + shipping for just the outer portion pair (right+left)?

If so...I can point you in the right direction.

I dunno...that is for E92.

E90 LCI lights have a cluster panel of LED's, not bulbs. So, you can't just replace them.

I wonder if there would be a way just to replace the panel and not the whole light. If you look at RealOEM.com, there are multiple parts to the light, and it looks like it may be possible to do it. Now only if you could order that piece...

Thanks

It's worth a try.

I think you would have to try and order directly from someone in europe that carries that part. I don't know how realistically it is to find just those panels. If you look at RealOEM...it also suggests you could easily swap out the orange reflector in the Pre-LCI xenon headlights. But that turned out to be a FAIL.

ya, probably. There is an excellent chance that they make the unit as one piece and you can't order it any other way.

I might be interested, was the swap straight forward, the fact that they are LED, what did you have to do to make them work without any error warnings?
Btw, they look bada$$.

If you are LCI, then straight swap with your stocks.

If you are pre-LCI, the lights work pefectly. You just get an error warning due to the LEDs being in the place where your car is expecting bulbs. The errors were cleared with multiple resistors. So now its perfect. (you do also need to get a LCI trunk to allow for the swap to work.)
