Nice. Kind of iffy on the segmented led format. Idk if it's rocking well with the F30 rear. Likely because it doesn't look as wide as the 4. Photos on Aliexpress aren't bad though. In for pics. I still have my precli 3 lights

They're currently around £481.. cheaper than some of the depo variants.

Shame they don't do them for the 4er shape otherwise I'd have spent the cash

Yup that sucks they don't offer them for the F32 I'd buy a set of those for sure. All the good mods are for the F30 lol.

I assume this is for LCI only to be Plug and Play based on their description on ali express. and yes the markup on mashimarho is huge. I expect these will hit ebay for almost half that.

the one that dubsesd posted looks slightly different than the Mashimarho and ebay/aliexpress lights. not sure if his was a prototype that won't end up being produced, but i kind of prefer those as the top half/turn signal doesn't look as out of place

Finish 9.5/10
Fit like 9/10

You do need to drill a hole to feed the wire and connect the inner and outer brake lights.

Though you could just leave them unconnected and only have the outers work as brake lights

That's because they've got the same shape inner pieces as the f32 lights, just in an f30 housing - doesn't flow well imo
you can see the difference in this pic

Hey Kevin-sama, I have a white 335i with carbon fiber trims, would you go with the red or blackline gts tail lights? I've heard the red one already has a Smokey tint but I can't decide 😞

I have white with carbon accents as well and for me personally, I would recommend red as it is already darker than stock and the smoked ones would stand out too much unless its on a dark vehicle.

Highly recommend them tho, only problem I had was the day after I installed them, it snowed and some moron hit me while I was parked and broke my left side.

Also, if you dont want to drill into your car, you can run the wire that connects to the trunk lights, thru the hole that is already there and cut off half of the tab that slots into the hole. Thats what I did and they fit great...

Hmmm okay good point, I think I'll stick with the red, do you prefer V1 or V2? I like how the brake light goes across both inner and outer in the tail-light with 4 scales compared to 5. Can't decide..

I'm not quite sure what do you mean but the tab, I've never swapped my lights before but I've definitely read about having to drill a hole which worries me.

V1 has the better animation but v2 has a cleaner OEM look.

I like the thicker lines of v2 as well. There is a predrilled hole on the car where you line up a tab on the outter lights, this can be used to run the wiring but it's not big enough for the wiring and tab to fit, which is why you either need to expand the hole or remove half of the tab.
