Got my trunk and inner lights from mitch. It is definitely the best option in my opinion. I had a csl carbon fiber trunk before that. The trunk and lights are easy to figure out after changing the pin configuration. They work like that too but you get hyper blinking until you code out all the cold/warm checks. I spent days trying to get the programs all installed on the computer and the car talking to it....a member here really helped me out.

thanks for the kind words. i had major issues trying to get my 64bit laptop configured correctly by using virtual xp. what a horror. i eventually gave up and used an old old xp laptop i had.

Alternatively you can get DEPO V2 headlights: http://www.modmy3.com/e90-91-depo-v2...eadlights.html

actually i had to rewire the whole car change the blinker fluid and muffler bearings to get the lci headlights to work. sorry for my previous misleading comment of them being plug and play.
also i had to code the car to think its a mini cooper too. i know i was just as shocked too.
