2011 LED Taillights for 08 E92

Hi Guys,

I could almost guarantee there's a thread out there on this but I couldn't find it.

My question is, will 2011 OEM E92 LED taillights fit an 08 E92?

I want to switch over because the new LED lights look alot more cleaner and better. Gives the car a cleaner look?

Thanks

Exactly, I don't know where the hell he was looking.

Maybe on the AMG forum?

As several others have already stated, the newer (LCI) taillights will fit without concern. To solve flickering issues on startup, you can either purchase a new Footwell Module or have the vehicle coded (much cheaper option). I would contact Evan Winstead @ Tischer BMW on getHelp@getBMWparts.com, he'll take care of you
