Red E90 | Rear LCI Conversion Complete! | Couple Shots

Hey all,

So last minute I sold my CSL trunk and blacklines to do a LCI rear conversion with Euro taillights! And I'm very happy I did it. Here's a couple shots of the rear. The M Tech rear and M3 spoiler were installed last week. Hope you enjoy!

Oh btw what should I do with the front? It's still stock lol. I was thinking of doing a LCI conversion as well but it's pretty costly.. I learned that by doing the rear lol.. Should I get a M3 bumper instead? What do you guys think?

Looking sharp! I have a red e90 also, I just ordered all of the components for a front M3 style lci conversion, and I orded lci rear lights also, but I haven't decided on the rear trunk yet, where did you buy yours, and how much was it, the trunk lid?

Very clean conversion! Maybe a really light tint on the tails to break all the red contrast?

In person there is more of the contrast, they look much better in person.

Looks good! If you don't go with the LCI front, I say get an Mtech front or performance front.

Thank you! Yeah I was going to get in that CSL GB but the wait is LONG. Instead I found a OEM trunk at a salvage yard in Cali with the help of another forum member. I paid $280 total shipped. It was pretty beat up with a lot of dents. My body shop did a really good job though fixing 90% of it. The only flaw of not buying a new trunk is I have a small gap on the top left side of the trunk. Not noticeable unless you know what you're looking for. Plus I saved $200 overall by going this route. But you would probably pay $200 more for a perfect trunk lol.

good work. you figured out your wiring issue I see. I'm sure all the anguish was worth it now. I would definitely go LCI on the front. If your going to buy a new front bumper anyways just save a little longer and do the hood as well. Down here I can get an aftermarket LCI hood with guaranteed fitment for $340. I have seen the OEM hood for $4xx on the bmw mercedes parts site with free shipping at times too. msport, or better yet performance front.

Thanks for the info man, I have another question, what harnesses/wires did you have to buy for the converion and how much were they, where did you get them, also how/where did you get it coded?

Thanks. I actually sold my M Tech to do either M3, LCI or Performance. Haven't decided though.

You don't need the harness. I just rearranged the wires myself to save $100. There's a thread that shows you the correct wiring. Really easy. I'll give you the link if you can't find it. As for the coding, I had it done by a local forum member.
