How is your cableset different than the official BMW retrofit kit? The official BMW retrofit kit is meant for those who want to change both their front and rear lights to the new LCI lights. However in addition to the front and rear lights you will need a new LCM, a cableset, 4 hours of dealer installation and programming. With my kit you can just do the rear lights and that too on your own. What all do I need to complete this retrofit?
All you need are these cables and a pair of LCI lights. Nothing else is needed, besides the tools to swap the lights ofcourse.How long would it take me to install these cables? The cables itself will take less than 10 seconds to install because its all plug and play. Installing the lights will take about 15-30 mins depending on your skill level. But that too is very simple because each light is held by just 4 nuts. Do you provide any instructions with this kit? Instructions are provided, if requested. Are the BMW lights included with this sale? Is there a difference between the kit for the US cars and the EU cars?
NO, there is no difference in the kit itself but the lights are different, please see Notice. Do you make cables for the E61 Touring version? Yes I do make cables for the E61 Touring version. Please contact me for details. I've seen other people sell these cables for cheaper, why are your cables so expensive?Most of them are copies of my kits or designs. Some only have resistors connected to the wires to avoid the errors but they do not give you the LCI look and the cause the LEDs to Strobe not only on start-up but also while driving! Also my older kits used relays, my latest kits are completely solid state with absolutely no moving parts inside them.
