2 questions - LED tails and CF roof wrap

I want to order CF wrap for the roof. Can someone tell me best way to do this? I see on bimmian.com you can buy sheets but damn they're expensive.

http://www.bimmian.com/92/CFF/

Next thing is LED tails. I read about having to do coding when installing these. Will that be necessary with these? It says on their site "No" so I'm just wondering why noone buys these? Just too expensive?

Coding will be required. They are cheaper elsewhere.

Read the details more closely:

Quote:
* High quality OEM parts compromise absolutely nothing
* Complete 4 Piece Set!
* Improved light output and response time
* Updated look
* No Error Messages
* Complete Plug and Play installation thanks to our installation harness
* LED Brake lights and LED Parking Lights
* Department Of Transportation Approved
* OEM Fit and Finish
* Resistors or software flash may be required * For the E92 Coupe Only
Just because an LED states that it will not throw errors, doesn't mean it still doesn't need coding...

I have CanBus Cree 7W LED Reverse lights. They don't throw errors, but they will flicker/strobe during Cold/Warm Bulb check. Code out the bulb checks and everything is OK


And as stated, others have them for less - Tischer has them for $550

If you know what you're doing, you don't need the FRM3 (if you don't already have one).

OK so now I'll ask this....what exactly does coding involve? I need to go to the dealer to do this? And I assume that's expensive as well....??
