Ordered on the 24th maybe? Sent them an email on the 6th of this month(they had been backordered when I got them) to see what was what. They got back to me immediately(in decent english) with a tracking number and an apology. Within a day they are already in the US.

Nothing but good things to say so far, I understand that backorders happen.

Same message! Guess he has been waiting on new boxes and lights because of back orders.

Hopefully should get them by next week!

Btw... the backup and turn signal lights are NOT led bulbs as someone posted about. They are the same bulbs that come in the pre LCI lenes. And the lenes are plastic not glass.

Is there anyone that has halogen front headlights that installed this with no problem?
I'm still pretty confused with all talk about adaptive headlights and stuff like that.

I also found out the difference between the two LCI blackline lights. ie: the basic and the High Blacklines shown in this thread.

The Low or standard blacklines the LED tubes do not light up... thetube is there, but only the tail light and brake light bulbs function. With the LCI Blacklines shown in this thread... the LED tube functions as the tail light bulbs when your headlights are on. I don't see why anyone would buy the "basic" blacklines. And that is also why I have been able to find a picture of them on anyones car! lol

So essentially regular halogen lights vs the xenon like the normal LCI variants. Good to know! Thanks for the pics and information Dack!

BTW, just did the lego mod for "rear fogs" on my 2009 128i (halogen) lights. Can't wait to see them on the new blackline LCI's.
