havent seen them, but IMO save your money, get LCI tails and code them. Would look 100X better and cleaner. Much more classy then obvious led knock offs. Plus these led knock offs have problems such as flickering/ tails can be improperly sealed/ leds die prematurely.

And you are still going to have to code out the Cold/Warm Bulb checks on all your rear lights with those to get rid of LED flickering & hyerflashing of the turn signals

Just spend the xtra $$ and get the OEM LCI tails - I got mine from STBMW (forum sponsor) for $523 shipped.

Adding the LCI LED tails is one of the best mods you can do to freshen up the looks of your car IMO...

Would you get your car serviced at WALMART. Junk is junk and that is what the ASIAN sellers on E-BAY sell.

Yes, which is why I am sticking to 07 tail lights, if I want LED it will be bulb only with coding

Amber turn signals are more easily distinguished as turn signals. Red just blends in with the sea of brake/tail lights.

Not sure why Euro and JDM car makers follow US car makers' trend of using red turn signals in their North American cars. ECE lighting standards call for amber rear turn signals in almost every other country.

Audi is even worse by coding their North American cars to combine the brake and turn signal into one entity like American cars instead of keeping them separate.

I hate how American cars do that. I think it just looks ghetto. Especially when a whole brake light has to go out for the turn signal to work. Ghetto
