Anyone have some photos or video of the blacklines with the white LED turn signals, brake lights?

Everyone seems to have yellow but I am interested in seeing white before I purchase

i wish i would've stumbled on this thread before i bought an e92. it might have swayed me to get the extra set of doors and save the extra couple grand.

So I am just about to get the OEM Blackline. I supposed I need to pickup some bulbs for the turn signal too. Where is my best bet to get those from?

Also, I supposed I can re-use the existing bulbs for the brake lights and reverse signals?

Why not? Pre lci were almost full red. Half of what the blacklines do is take away so much red.

I don't think they throw errors. To be safe though, you could buy oem's than get them tinted.

I dont think they do either but they are more likely then OEM?

i.e. Buy OEM blacklines from a BMW authorized dealer and you should not throw any error codeds, if you do take them back to the dealer and they should fix them

Oh yeah, OEM is probably always going to be the choice to go with if you'd rather be safe than sorry.

If you do decide on them, Tischer can hook you up. www.getbmwparts.com

I'd go OEM but I really want smoked and the frickin shop here charges $80 for a taillight tint. Some joker wanted $375 haha....I about laughed in his face and hung up. And yes, I'm sure he wasn't talking about the windows and taillights. So DEPO is the only aftermarket smoked blackline? Bummer, I don't really want a taillight that throws errors.

only LED tailights will throw error codes guys, replacing your OEM with DEPO blacklines (NON LED) on prelci e90 sedans is only a lense replacement in all sense

you can buy from several sites

i personally bought mine from bimmian.com

OEM vs. Smoked?

Anybody got pictures comparing OEM vs. Smoked Blacklines on a Jet Black E90? Thanks!

I'm leaning toward OEM, but would like to see the difference...
