LCI tails coding $95?

Just put some LCI tails on my 09 e92 and got a quote for $95 to have them properly coded to fix the bulb check notification and the fast turn signals...$95 seemed high I thought, what have you guys paid for this? I am in Orange County Area....

$95 for any type of coding sounds pretty cheap to me... But I'll defer to those who have actually done the LCI tails coding.

There's a list of other options included within coding sessions we can provide when here, along with a full rundown of how everything works afterwards so you have a complete understanding how everything works.

Feel free to drop by or contact me directly if you have any questions!

As mentioned above, it's not $95 for only coding the taillights, but you can have a vast number of things done for that $95. EAS is the best around, and will surely exceed your expectations!

Anyone know where the best place to receive this type of coding and more in or near the Charleston SC area? If I have to drive to Columbia SC or Charlotte NC I will just have to do it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Cheapest route is to buy your own cable and code it yourself. With the cable you're also able topull codes and do any future coding as well.

$95 isnt bad considering if you take the time to learn to code it could easily take you many many hrs of your time.

I made the investment to learn, but if you dont have the time or desire $95 is a pretty reasonable sum to pay for a company to do it. Id say $50 is a good deal from an individual.
