Wiring: LCI rears on Pre LCI

Ive got the bootlid, Ive got the lights. Ive found someone willing to code the car, I just need some concrete clarification regarding the wiring.

So far, in order to fit these LCI lights to my Pre LCI car, I'll need to swap the yellow and green wires about - but on the bootlid lights, or the corner lights?... Or both? Or none - and just code it?

Ive read conflicting info, and searching is a minefield, full of half-answers etc.

I'd rather not waste money on a wiring harness when I can swap the position of the wires in the connector for free.

Ah I thought they were 30 each, and I'd need 2x bootlid harnesses, and 2x corner light harnesses.
So 30 all in? Are they readily available?

I bought few times those harnesses for about 32 (pair) from dealer. Even with wiring diagram you must buy different connectors.

They are available can't remember the part number off the top of my head but if you order one day you'll see the part the next

It's not just a case of swapping the wires... the connecting plugs are a different size on the LED lights.

If this is an e90 I can assure you I did not change any plugs, just removed the wires from the plug and repositioned. Then coded.

Thanks. Do you have a copy of what needs to be changed? I did find it, but I've lost the link!
