anyone tried these pre lci tail lights

well i was thinking of getting rid of the old white tail lights but to update to new lci ones and getting a new boot is a big job, so i found these to have all red, or maybe the black ones

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/130490580...84.m1436.l2649

has anyone tried them? i wonder how easy it is to do and will it fit a normal 320 2007 ?

i took a chance and got the lights i was sick of the white tail lights , and i must say im very impressed it transforms the car ,instead of having the white bits stick out so much when you look at the back makes it look more black
, and they were easy to install even for a person like me with no skills with tools

I've got these too, do need coding, you get a warning light to say you have a bulb out and when you initially engage the indicators after start up the fronts with run double time for the first 4-5 times before the rears kick in.

I've just bought an LCI boot lid and light assembly so my set of these after-market lights are now for sale. I don't want to hijack this thread so I'll start one in the classified section, get in touch with me there if interested.
