I saw these tail lights on facebook too. I think these would look cool on a aggressively modified f30 or a f80. Otherwise, I think it's a little overkill.

The Ferris wheel in the first picture is appropriate. The lights along the edge remind me of the Zipper carnival ride.

These tail lights from the CS and GTS are awesome looking. I don't believe you can retrofit them to an F32 though. I believe they're only compatible with M4's, whether base or otherwise. I'd like to hear if someone was able to retrofit them though. Although they're $10k lol.

My wife has an F30 2014 and I an LCI... Quite frankly I like more the pre-LCI tail light with straight line instead of the curvy lines.
The only one I would consider to change is the blackline... otherwise stay OEM and no leaks.

$10k tail lights? If that doesn't say 'more money than brains' I don't know what does.

Right lol. Even if I did have or save up $10k I don't think I could go through with spending that cash on a pair of tail lights. They're so pretty though!

These are aftermarket remakes - Dubsesd was talking about a project a while back, a few guys in the US had teamed together to try and build these, however it looks like a Chinese manufacturer ran with the plans and made it themselves.

There was a post on IG recently regarding these to be stolen prototype designs, with many flaws supposedly.. that said at 480 it's not bad to say they're literally plug and play. The light up pattern is managed via an internal controller, so in theory if they did release a 4er shape then they should be compatible.

Vland will be releasing these mid December for 2012-15 F30s. These do look cool imo, but all your other exterior mods need to be on point.

dubsesd posted about something similar on his IG (same username). Not sure if they're the same as the ones pictured but same idea. The ones he posted about are by a new (?) company called Solas Illumination Co.

Appears to be only for F30 and F80 unfortunately. I'd buy a set of these if they were available for F32 but sadly doesn't appear to be the case, based on what I can see at least.

Another recent thread about these lights:

I emailed the seller and apparently these are in the process of being made for the F32/F82. The seller however did state it will be a good while before they are available to the masses
