Finally did it....

UPDATED! LCI Tailights installed. I was going to get the car coded today but something came up. Got the usual bulbcheck warning lights on my dash. Everything looks PERFECT! I love the look...way better than the older tail lights. Ordered a set of LCI tailights for my 08! Got the set for $515 from Morristown BMW in NJ. I had a coupon for ebay bucks over the course of the last 3 months. Total shipped was $501, down from $530 with shipping.

This completes my exterior/accentuation of my M3! I think I am totally done!

Includes the PnP harness too. Sick deal, right?

Nice. Been thinking if getting LCI lights myself. Read some forum members skipping the FRM module and system not blinking after several weeks.

I am going to have the FRM2 coded to have the lights done properly. That's the best way to do it!

Good choice, Mike. I just did mine last month as well. I didn't really realize how ugly the old tails were until I got the new ones on. Big improvement. Next up....CIC retrofit.

I agree. They just look so plain and "old" looking with the boring red glass. I know with each individual LED bulb showing up and everything else itll look much cooler

Agreed. In my eyes the big clear strip at the bottom of the old style lights just looked plain ugly.

Just code out the warm and cold bulb checks for the tails in your NFRM module. Very easy....took me about 2 minutes to do the coding.
