I paid £340 inc delivery via German eBay. Posted a link in one of my other threads. Will post it later when home if needed. Don't forget £40 for the retro fit cables from the dealer.

Hopefully you wont consider this as thread jacking but I'd like to know what is so special about the LCI rear lights that a lot of members upgrade to it? Is it just because its newer?

This thread might be useful later if I get converted to your thinking.

I use to think the same but in my opinion it transforms the rear of the car. Sounds dramatic i know lol but honestly once you see the difference in real life it makes sense. Down to personal opinion i guess

That's a complete conversion inc boot for a e90 4 door, so won't fit. And the fact there is no price and been for sale for a longtime I bet they want good money. Saying that I bet a few on here would be interested in it!

If only we could match up pre-Lci and Lci guys who prefer each others lights, and do a swap!

I'd put money on whilst some people say they prefer per lci, if they owned lci and you offered them a straight swop for pre lci, I somehow doubt they would
