Yes, they do. I've seen pics of them on the E90 M3 which may (or may not?) come in handy

I'm new to E90's (I currently have an E39). I had no idea what blacklines were until reading this thread. Funny thing is, I always wondered why E90's didn't come with these stock. I saw some pics posted here with the different taillights and thought it was a US / Canada thing.

I'm ordering mine soon, as I'm picking up my new 335i in a couple of weeks!

Question. I wasn't paying attention when I installed my blacklines (too anxious) but one of my friends told me that the red on the trunk part of my lights do not light up when I press the brakes. I looked on my factory lights and there is a bulb in the small red lense but i can't remember if that lights up all the time or only under hard braking. Can someone reassure me that my tail lights are working fine. If someone has a pic of their blacklines with the brake light on that would be most helpful. Thanks

It's not the bars on the trunk lid, its the red just below it. I think it might be for the rear fog lights or for adaptive braking. I'll check out what you mean about the bars dimming after the car sitting. Thanks for the reply.

Why is it really a black line, is it another term for smoked?

quick question. I bought my blacklines from morristown bmw on ebay and just installed them this weekend. I noticed yesterday that when my brother had his foot on the brake, there was some bleed through of the brakelight into the next brake section. basically, if you look a the pic above with the foglights on, the inner section of the brake lights (the progressive brake light area) is backlight a bit somehow. did i do something wrong? anyone have the same problem? i ask becuase i know that on the old lights, the brake lights were very segmented, and now its not quite like that.

Damn this a long post... But a good one. Many thanks!

However, got a question for the EUs here. Is the Blackline kit (OEM 6321 04 06 678) EU compliant? I was told it needs to have a "E" circled logo on the glas...

It seems that OEM # is equal for US and EU Black lines, so maybe anyone with black lines could check that for me, or post a pic...

Thanks!
A.

I was about to order but then I saw the above stuff about the LED for '09. Can anyone confirm LED Black Lines are coming out?

^But the taillight for 09 e90 wouldn't fit you e90. And I have not heard about blacklines for the 09 e90.

Is that confirmed by BMW, already? I mean, the outer parts have not changed in size right? The inner parts can be fixed by ordering LCI'd trunk lid or an aftermarket one...

So, you think it is pretty safe to get some Black Lines and not have LED's at will fit a '07 come out anytime soon?
