Yes the ones from Icon Motorsport are replicas, they seem to be a little darker and price is cheaper.

And wiring that can be seen is a mess.

See other thread as people are having issues with these replicas taillights trying save a few bucks.

Wonder if its the harness or the lights. I think they look better than the OEM.

Agreed, they look better. Wonder if he bought the wrong year too there's 12-15 and then 16-present. Also that's on an f80, everything i saw these lights were made for the f30 to look like the f80 replacements. So maybe it's a different harness he needs

After the Winter both of my outer lights have condensation. I tried to apply silicone to the plasic weld but not easy to reach it. And the end result looks messy because the silicone is visible through the clear plastic so now I am removing the silicone...
