For anyone interested, looks like they will NOT be available in the US though. There is a thread ongoing here, but seems like they aren't available yet.

I don't like them, stick to the original LCI's man. Remind me of altezza lights back in the 90's.

Those were basically my thoughts, haha but like I said I was intrigued. I bet pictures of the lights on an actual car would look very different from the BMW promotional catalog shots that don't show much.

Mine I think has 30 or 35 so would be a fair representation on your car. I have black interior as well.

Looking good! I agree with the other member, you're doing all the mods I want to do on my F31!

So Euro LCI tails are different than US for the F31? Can any BMW dealer get the Euro part numbers?

Thanks, no U.S. BMW dealers aren't allowed to order Euro parts.

-OEM F8x M3/M4 Steering Wheel

Found a cheap bare steering wheel from an M3, decided to buy it and switch my M-Sport wheel out since my steering wheel is a little worn and I love the Tri-stitch. Install was straight forward, and everything transferred over from the M-Sport wheel, the WORST part had to be the connectors for the paddle shifters, took me awhile to figure out how to unhook those damn things. Pretty good mod for anyone with a worn wheel.

-OEM 513M wheels

Specs are 18x9 +29, 18x10 +40, transferred the tires from my Advans to these wheels.
Tires are: 235/40/18 front, 265/35/18 rear. There is a SLIGHT stretch, but the wheels fit perfectly, if I was to do it again I'd put 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 on them. They look great! Loving the OEM plus look.

OEM finish is so clean!


Switching tires


End result!

Dude, car looks fantastic and I'm sure it's also shockingly fun to drive as well...

Looking to do the same dual tip mod but noticed your comment about the tips needing to be extended. Can you describe what the work entails exactly? Does the shop literally need to extend both exhaust tips by cutting and welding in an extension on both tips? Or is it the single pipe portion that needs extended so the outlets fit in the diffuser properly?

Thanks in advance!

What a beautiful car you have. When you did the fog light swap was it a plug n play or did you have to get harnesses.

Depending on your exhaust person, it can be done either way. Mine extended both tips but to be honest, i think the other way would be easier.

The foglight swap is a direct plug n play, the fogs are from a f32. You need some coding though.
