E90 LCI tail light conversion

Im looking to start gathering the parts needed to convert my Pre LCI tail lights to the nice LCI lights. I know I need the inner trunk and tail lights. Does anyone know if I need the harness or if I can just have my car coded instead?

Thanks

You also need an LCI trunk lid, if you hadn't anticipated that already :-)

When I bought mine it came with a harness
& to add to the lci trunk lid you also would probably want to get the carpet lining. You can use your old one but it will be flimsy, I just bought the lci one so it fit nice & snug

You don't need a harness. Trunk and tails, rewire the inner tails (easy to do) and get coded.

Re-use the inner lining, it's fine. Trust me

I'm referring to on the M3 btw. I assume that's what it's for. Can't see why it'd be different, but I'm posting based on my M3 experience
