European E90 LCI Tails

Anybody know where I can get my hands on a set of European Inners & Outers?

I know ECS Tuning has them, but they're back ordered until March.

Check eBay. They're usually on there from a Latvian seller.

Thanks.

I think I found the seller.

I only need to do Coding to make the LCI Tails work, correct? Obviously other than swapping the trunk also.

Yes. Various cold and warm checks need to be disabled. I believe on E90 you can just re-pin the stock connector and don't really need the PnP harness for certain years.

I have a 2008, the Coding isn't a huge deal, my shop can take care of that.

Is there a link to a DIY by any chance for it? I'm sure the re-pinning of the OEM Connector isn't too difficult either.

Or, a link to where I can just pick up the PnP Harness?

Thanks in advance!

I'm sure it's around on this forum if you search the Lighting/Exterior section. I have a coupe so I've no idea. Re-pining is indeed very easy.

There Is no difference to the inners. In fact the US Spec & European Spec look identical until you apply the turn signals/hazards. European spec turn signals will illuminate amber when activated as to the US spec will illuminate red.

I believe this is the seller.

Yes, wasn't aware they were different. Just wanted to make sure, since i'm in Hong Kong, and we come with EuroSpec vehicles to begin with!

You just need to do this:

After you're done, you don't need to re-code on the E90. I just simply had to unplug the battery and once I replugged it, the fast blinkers and bulb check errors were fixed.

I learned it from a post on here. I didn't believe it at first either, but after disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, I was surprised that did the trick!

Did you get them from the European seller?

I've been waiting forever on ECS to get the E92 ones back in stock but now they're push back until late June when the original ETA was April 8. Ridiculous.
