This GB includes both RH & LH sides & inner and outer lamps landed in Sydney Australia.





Doing some research on e90post, it would appear you can code the lamps rather then purchase the expensive harness but of course you could buy this if you wish.

So if you're interested please let me know and I can place your name on the list below

Cheers

Stu from BMR has indicated that he can supply us for this GB, buy in confidence from a local supplier

Stu's conditions and offer is as follows:

$650 landed in Syd
- $14-32 aus wide postage (depending on location)
- full prepayment (dd/paypal - adds 3%)
- GST inclusive
- 2week lead time, but allow 3 just in case... that should be end of the month at the latest
- min order quantity is only 2 pairs... anymore is a bonus
- harness to offer PNP pre LCI to LCI is $50

I could even offer a bigger discount...

2 people: $650 a set
4 people: $635 a set
6 people: $620 a set
8 people: $650 a set including harness

JEKL, you need the harness if you are going pre LCI to LCI tail lights.

There is no way around this unless you are going to cut, splice and solder wires.

So that $200-250 is mandatory.

Hmm damn.. I shall have to research this once again more thoroughly, the thread I had initially read by memory stated it could all be coded out....

Cut and splicing wires from the taillamp is no biggy if that's the case, or do you mean from the car wiring itself?

The lights should come with a short connector as the plugs are different.
The connector should not cost $250.00
I think you might be referring to the lighting control module which would cost
this much. Apparently this is not needed as it is possible to code the car to accept the LED rear lights.

Yeah mate, even with the new harness you need the coding.

I wouldn't cut/splice wires in the tail lamps in case you ever need to remove them (repairs etc).

You need the harness + coding

You can avoid using the harness if you're experienced enough with wiring and can cut and splice but for most people I imagine you'll just end up with butchered non working brand new lci taillights

Wouldn't the applicable GST and duty on multiple taillight pairs offset combined shipping discounts?

I'll see what I can do for you guys given a few people interested.
I've currently got the whole set listed at $995 on www.bmraw.com inc harness but could probably knock $100 off for multiple sets.

Yours must had been special

All retrofit kits come with a harness, which cost $250 to convert.

Nope, all LCI tails available for E92 are OEM only.

I have done LCI conversion on e90 rear lights. You don't need a harness just coding for hyper blinking. Mtranz helped me with that. U just need to rearrange 4 little simple wires to match the LCI order or wiring. Do some research on the forums. That's how I figured it out. I'm happy to help anyone I can. They work perfect without any harness.
