Cheaper E92 LCI taillights are coming soon...

Looks like DEPO has cloned the E92 LCI taillights. Everyone seemed to be pretty happy with the quality of their blackline E90 tails which sold for $175, so let's hope pricing and quality wind up being similar.

Depo says they're already out, and have amber blinkers (Euro spec). Their distributors in Europe should have them by now, and I imagine they'll trickle their way into the US fairly soon as well.

Every DEPO housing I've dealt with on an E90 or another vehicle has leaked or had issues. I'd suggest waiting for a deal on OEMs. It's more of a hassle to try and seal them and/or deal with leaks after install.

NICE!!! About damn time! I had a set of Depo LED tails on my E46 for years and never had an issue.

Edit: A quick eBay search yield this. Bahahah, $500?! Fuck no. Id' just get OEMs at that point. The seller must be on crack.

If they are under $250 I would definitely consider them. $500? no way in hell!

Hah, that's only a few bucks cheaper than OEM. Hopefully other sells get their hands on them and bring some competition to the market. I don't see any reason other than price gouging for why the E90 ones would be $175 and these would be triple that.

Only reason they aren't is because of price gouging due to limited availability. Give it a little time and they'll settle.

Sorry but OEM always beats out depo with quality and ease of use (No codes or their code eliminators going out)

The OEM lights require coding, same as these.

I'm sure build quality will be a bit better on OEM, but if these drop in price more, I doubt the quality gap will be enough to justify the more expensive OEM lights.

You'll be seeing some prime examples starting to sell when the M3 guys jump to the M4

It says the harness is included now. There isn't even an option to add it like yesterday.
