Rear LED style lights

Hi Guys..

Just to let you know spoke to my local dealer and the Rear LED style lights are now avaliable as a retrofit kit for the F20

Cost is 238 for the two lights fully complete, parts guys seems to think just plug and play.

Cars with Xenon have LED rear lights as standard, Retrofit only for halogen front light vehicles. This is a good retrofit. nice observation Cliveywolves

Smile LED Retrofit

Hello mates,

I can confirm that original LED retrofit lights are "plug and play".
I've just mounted it on my new F20 118d, without any kind of problems - and it only took around 8 min.

It's beautiful - so just go ahead!

Best regards,

JJ

Got a close up pic of LED's in the thread of my car. They're not on though, but it gives an idea perhaps.

I've just fitted mine and it works when I turn switch on, but if I set my daytime running lights to on, the rear right doesnt work and sometimes they flicker, please check yours, maybe needs programming, going to contact dealer.

Have you got Xenons?
Daytime running lights option will only allow turn your front lights on and not your rear lights..
Flickering , my dealer said after fitting you will not to bring in and have the car recoded to confirm rear LED lights. Hope this helps
