Nice! But I prefer the more angular pre-LCI tails. They look more serious and purposeful IMO.

Are you planning on changing the fronts too?

I guess it's looks are subjective but I agree the pre-LCI look tidier with a little class. The LCI tail light's look similar to the new Mercedes/KIA tail lights. It's a lot brighter in real life.

Yes it's a full LED tail light, plug & play with a Harness. Somewhere around 1.3K USD including coding.

I was quoted much less than that for the tails + harness. Thinking about doing it myself. Looks good!

I guarantee that the new tail lights will grow on everyone. All BMW designs look strange when they come out, just like any other product that comes out. If they weren't so expensive I would it in a heart beat. They make the car modern and current.

I was a little impatient and didn't shop around definitely cheaper ones out there.

Nice, Good luck! It's pretty simple to install but requires some level of coding to divert power.

Looks nice but I do not see the reason to blow off $1300 for that.

This.

They new tails look beautiful to me already. But BMW did a fantastic job designing the pre LCI lights on the F3x compared tithe E90
