E90 facelift rear

Has anyone on here fit a facelift lci bootlid and rear lights on a e90 successfully?

As i understand it you need to change the bootlid, all four rear lights, small part of loom and then code the car.

Does anyone know how much the loom costs?

I'm thinking of going ahead with the conversion but would like to find someone who has successfully completed the conversion.

as far as I thought the lights would plug in without errors, although coding is required.

So you could just buy the bootlid, then get it re-coded by BW chiptune.

I'm not 100% though.

I know this might not be the exact look your after, but I would just get the Blackline rear lights.

They look great and will be much cheaper than replacing bootlids!

Im not a fan of Blackline rear lights. I think the all dark,clear top stripe on the rear lights is best left on the e36.

From that thread it shows people are still getting error codes. So this may not be possible to do without error codes showing.
