my next little project.. poor man's m3

i love the lci tlook but after seeing the f10 tail lights... the e92 lci rear is pail in comparison. so i decide to retrofit the f10 tail light into my e92. Work should begin in a month once my lights arrive. wish me luck guys...

the only real obsticle i would think is the wiring.
