Is there a DIY to retrofit LCI tail lights?

As the title states, I want to find a thread to retrofit some LCI tails on my e92 m3. I tried searching, but couldn't find anything. Any help?

well the physical removal of the lights is simple are you looking for that DIY?

or are you looking for a DIY regarding the coding update you'll need for them to function properly?

This is what I followed (keep in mind part numbers are for an E93, but the install process should be similar)

Thanks, yeah the removal of the tailights. Wanted to do some research before attempting it, but seems simple enough. It must be so simple no one made a diy for the e92.

super easy and takes less than 20 minutes, just make sure you tighten the bolt enough where water won't be leaking through the seal.
