Thanks in advance for you help!

um.. not being funny but working for a dealer shouldn't you either know, be able to find out from BMW UK (or AG), or just order the parts and actually 'give it a go'?

from anecdotal hearsay, yes they do work.. i believe though that a makeshift wiring adapter needs to be either made, or possibly purchased if someone now has had the foresight to produce one?

They do work but require a harness or adaptation of the original wiring loom. One thing to note is that unless the bulb check is disabled via coding, the rear LED lights will flash randomly as the car is started for a couple of seconds. I think Hotcoupe on here has LCI rears on his but I might be wrong.

Unfortunately we don't have any project cars here that we're able to play around with, nor the free time to be able to spend on something like this.

Thanks for your helpful post Idnan.
This information is for a customer of mine who wants to carry out this retrofit. He's willing to take the risks but I'd rather know if someone has successfully carried this retrofit out and similarly if anyone tried but failed.
