VGate, Illuminated Sills, Ambient Strips and more

Hi,

I sold my BMW a while ago, and I have some nice bits and pieces for sale. I'm looking to sell all this together please, with collection only.

The package comprises of:

1. VGate wifi/bluetooth dongle - for use with BimmerCode

2. Original BMW front illuminated sills (takes minutes to fit and look excellent). I'd advise you to use a plastic trim removal tool when removing/fitting these.

3. Ambient lighting strip upgrade - makes your front and rear EXISTING ambient light much more prominent, like a 5 series. Really makes a massive difference to ambience of the car at night. Takes a few minutes to slide the strips into place. These were bought from an eBayer who has a small side business creating these strips on his 3-D printer. Honestly, this is how BMW should have made the ambient lighting in the first place. Only works if you already have the ambient lighting option.

4. BMW Logo Puddle lamps. Some people like them. I didn't. So I removed them after trying them out. They work well though.

5. An assortment of spare bulbs (they all work, but obviously used or just not fitted, I can't remember). LED and normal. Just handy as spares.

I am looking for 175 for all the above. Just the Original BMW illuminated sills cost me 200. So, all of the above for 175 seems a fair price.

Please remember - will not split, and collection only please (from Bradford BD2).

I think the above mods are an excellent way to enhance your car. It really made a difference to mine.

I will try and upload some photos later. Otherwise, please provide your email or whatsapp, and I'll forward you some photos.

Many thanks :-)

Hi,

All the parts listed are for a BMW F30 saloon (2012-2018).

I assume they would also fit a F31 Estate.

I think the F32 (4 series?) has larger doors/sills. I doubt they would fit?

The BMW Part Number on the box (which I still have) is 51 47 2 408 857. The wording on the box is 'BMW LED DOOR SILL PLATES'. Your dealer should be able to confirm if they are the right ones for your car.

Hope that helps.
Thanks.

I forgot I still had these....

Ok, since it's almost Christmas, how about 100 for the lot?

Buyer to collect.

It's a steal at that price.

Would be interested in the VGate if you do end up splitting the sale.
Cheers

I don't think so. They just say BMW on them.

Thanks.
