Coding second hand lighting module

I want to fit the LCI rear lights to my E92, but as my car is a 57 plate im assuming it has the FRM 2 version lighting module. If i were to buy a FRM 3 module from a breakers would i be able to use it? Also most lighting modules listed on ebay say E9x so im assuming any module would fit from either model of the E9x family?
Any help appreciated

Two things - as you have an e92 you obviously have xenons so a module from an E90, say, might be for halogens (i.e. with the manual thumbwheel for headlamp aim) so make sure you get a European (front and rear foglights) xenon version.

Secondly, on the E46 the lighting module also held redundant mileage information - if you changed the module then the "mileage tamper" warning would come on in the dashboard.

Thanks for your reply. Would the problem with the mileage not be relevant if i were to buy a new FRM 3 module from the dealers then ( if the same problem occured on e9x models)?
