im interested for sure!

I'd love to see how those black lci tail lights look on a car... might not look great on mine.. but if I plan to do black wheels and black out all chrome on my SG car.. it might look good... would love for a pic of them installed on a car with dark color tone.

Vendors are lazy may be. One size fits all.

For this reason the rep M3 rear and M3 sideskirts look rediculous on E90.

Sideskirts have the ridge ending somewhere 2/3 to the rear door, which is obviously wrong.

Rear bumer looks silly as it extends too low on sides (original just rounds up nicely), has too much detail in it, has some sculpted diffusor which sedan doesn't, etc. As a result it looks worse than original, worse than stock, etc. For this reason M sport owns this kit.

As for tails - why go through all the trouble replicating the LCI tails and yet, not do a blackline! That would truly be a light to consider - LCI LEDs which fit pre-LCI in the popular blackline style. I dunno, whoever does these obviously isn't aware of what's actually popular and is missing out on quite a bit of cash.

It's just another option... not EVERYONE likes blacklines...

I don't like blacklines, actually. It's just that i don't like the red in tail lights... i'd rather the bulb, itself, light up red rather than shining through a red window.

In addition, i wouldn't participate in this group buy either, at least not for the red ones. On the MARZ website, they also have smoked ones... which i would consider, only i would probably modify those too by removing the face, and painting the housing black (since they're LED, it should still be pretty bright).

Everyone has their own tastes, and the consumer doesn't always go for the cheapest option obviously.

I am very interested, but it is impossible to get 20 people to order, I am sure they will accept 10, they do not make such a big sale due to their location and shipping charges.

Hi Guys,

You have to check with the person who posted the product. It should be far lower than retail as it is direct from the country of origin and you would have to deal with customs and shipping. Extra work but may be a lot cheaper.

The discount for 20 buyers will be $450 shipped to your door.

Once we reach 20, I will put together an Excel sheet to submit to them, so please also PM me your full name, address, and phone number.

Reg price through their website was $407 US + $172 US for shipping ($579 total) so this is not too bad. Link here:

This is interesting, but none of the pictures show the lights being used. Would be cool to see them in action!
