to get LCI tails or not!?

I really like them but dont know if justifying $700 is worth it. What are your thoughts?

I dont have plates so it would look like an 2011 m3. Thats the only advantage i can think of. Is it worth it?

No problem, we can code these on site as well and have most items in stock at all time.

See you shortly!

Umm...aren't you trying to sell this car as well? If so, then any $ put into it is wasteful.

Completely agree. They looked dated when they came out. Prefer E46 LCI tails to the 08 tails

Save your $700 and invest it on something that will make you more money in the future. These cars are a money pit!
