LCI f30 tail light retrofit question

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I already purchased the OEM LCI taillights but need to purchase the drip rails and the harness. I was wondering what the difference was between the alpine MSS harness and the EAS harness. Is one better than the other? Looking for the easiest install, thanks!

Why purchase them at extortionate prices when you can purchase the BMW OEM Retrofit cable part no# 61122410220

Use the attached instructions.

This is great! Is there a reason this harness is significantly cheaper than the others? Is the install process the same and the coding afterworks going to be the same? If this is the same thing as the other two options I am sold. I just don't understand why this OEM harness is so much cheaper than the other choices!

Simple, this is the original. The other 2 are copies that the companies sell for profit.

Wow if that's the case then it would make no sense to not go the OEM harness route. Thank you so much for the info and the fast response!!

Is there a website to purchase the harness from? I can't seem to find it on getbmwparts. Also do I need only 1 harness or 2 (one for each taillight).
