When you order part # 61122181307, it should be one bag with two harnesses inside. The reason I say this is because I have seen someone order 2x Part #61122181307 (thinking that you need one for each) but ended up with 4x harnesses. Let us know what you got.

Very nice info! But wouldn't it be easier to just order a PNP version for 90 dollars extra?

Coding is required for proper function of the turn signals and elimination of bulb check errors. BMW Sells a harness for the inner (trunk lid) lights, but it is not required. What you need to do is pop open the connectors running to the trunk lid lights, and rearrange the pin connectors as shown:

So regardless of whether you order this kit from Tischer or not, you still need to do this coding, correct?

And who has the PN for the FRM3 module?

Yes.

You don't need an FRM3. There are people who can code out the errors for FRM1 cars even. You should have FRM2.

=== UPDATE ===

Sorry guys. It seems that bmwmercedesparts updated their prices so upgrading the LCI taillights via this route is no longer worthwhile. Better to just order the kit directly from Tischer!

I take it you got this done. Who did you use for coding in Vancouver?
Thanks for sharing.

61122181307 - Wiring Harness - $46.85 (www.getbmwparts.com)

63217252780 - Rear light in trunk lid, right - $96.92 (www.bmwmercedesparts.com)

Shipping: $7.95 for the harness, and $8 shipping for the tail light assemblies
-----------------------------------------

Total cost: $510.16 shipped (you will also need to code with an AutoLogic programmer)

Currently a couple sets in stock! (depending on which option is selected).

Regardless, it's only about 2 business days for us to get more from BMW should we be out at the time your order is placed.

Thanks again!

I coded mine out... took 20 mins going slow. No need for FRM3, I have a 2007 and I just code the NFRM module.

But to do it the BMW way, yes they want you to use FRM3.

Bmwmercedeaparts price is still lower than tischer for $30 but they ship it like a week after order place. And they only send me one harness instead of 2. Seems like they just bag 1 harness for me and didnt find out that 1 order should come with 2.
Tischer ftw

So what did you do? Did they send you another one? Because, I'm in the same situation, having ordered from BMWmercedesparts and only got 1 harness

i order another set of harness from them, and when arrive it comes with 2 harness, which is how it should be (confirm with dealership that 1 order comes with 2 harness)
so i email them and send back the 1 harness order and get full refund.

i will ask for refund or get another harness if i were you.

Yeah, actually I emailed them about it, and they said that there was an error in how the harnesses got shipped to them when they ordered them. So they said, they would order the other harness and ship it to me free of charge. thanks anyway bro! Sorry you had to go through the hassle.

For those like me who missed the tischer black friday deal - www.bmwmercedesparts.com is having a free shipping special on orders over $300 for the month of december so the total comes out to 537.71 now. I also added motor oil, wheel cleaner, all-season floor mats, windshield wipers and fluid since their prices were pretty good.

yes you would.

Has anyone ordered the tails from BMWmercedesparts.com lately? It still seems like a cheap enough option as of right now. also when you search these parts, do you only need the actual light part? or do you need all the little extras like the seal and the spacer?
