I sent them photos of the lights and the package it was shipped in just this morning.
I am now waiting for them to give me a plan to exchange one right taillight for the left.

Can someone take their best educated guess (not random guess) at how much these lights would be in about 2-4 years?
Would they stay relatively the same or would we see some drop in price?
thanks

Well, going by the pre-lci tail lights... new ones are $180 each ($360 for both) retail now. And they were $180 retail 4 years ago. I have had a spare pre-lci light for a few years now (I forget how I even got it), but every time I check on it's worth, it's stayed at $180 retail. Of course, you can get it for something like $160 at discount places, but the BMW price has never gone down. So, I'm guessing it won't get much cheaper than it already is.



Also, what's the status on this? I see some people have gotten their lights already. Any new orders available? I am interested in re-joining for realzies, as long as the price isn't ridiculous, and it's still possible.

Thanks, I appreciate it. That was my guess that the prices won't go down much.
Been keeping my eyes on deflectors (for convertibles) and they have not really gone down at all either for the past 3 years as well

I believe Black-line will hold value, especially if BMW cuts off production.
The problem is selling your old tailights. No one wants the non LCI and the regular LCI is experiencing lower demand on the forum. So the decision to keep old until you sell car may be an okay decision

Yes many have, through S*man retailer
They have stock, and their price is great, unless customs gets you(Thank you Ontario, Canada)

NihonX, welcome to my world. In May I ordered my blacklines. When they arrived the rt. tail light was cracked. See my posts a couple pages back. I have been in contact with S-mann over the past months trying to sort this out. Well finally last week I get a UPS return label and sent the cracked t/l back to them. Now I wait some MORE for a new rt. t/l. I hope I don't have to wait for yours to get back to them so can send me one of them. If you have any problems with them, I have a bank of phone #s and e-mail address. Good luck!

I went ahead and bit the bullet based on the response from this thread. A little worried about getting two left lights or something, but it shouldn't be an issue. About $350 shipped isn't bad at all. I'm still not the biggest fan of the shape of the lights on the LCI (looks very lexus to me), but I think the blackline looks good. Much better than tints or vinyl, which look cheap and ricey to me. Can't wait


On a related note, is anyone tinting/vinyling the 3rd brake light on the trunk to match?

Nice! They will look good

I haven't tinted the 3rd brake light... I find that it's such a subtle difference no one can tell.

those are the same one, just not blackline version. Those are just regular OEM LCI taillights for the 1 series.

Guys, I just found out today while at my BMW Zentrum that there is a third choice.

Stock the LCI's are clear. And the Blacklines are dark black. But there is something called "sport" which is a light smoked color LCI tail. That is what I ordered for my 135i. I throw up some pics next week when I have the lights on my car.


PS: IF you look up on RealOEM for a German model 135i LCI you will see the Sport tails lists with Xenons and AHL options.

Oh my, Part number??

So SPORT LCI is the happy middle??

We should be happy BMW is loving the 1 so much


Edit: I have a theory...

Research findings on RealOEM suggest that Sports Edition is a pack (Sort of like M-Sport pack for 135i) that actually includes the Blackline LCI taillights, with part number 63217327275 & 63217327276

The reason Blacklines LCI part number 63212225282 exists is because it is a retrofit Kit, which contains the two Sport pack LCI lights. Since it is a kit it has the different part number.

Hey, so I got a call from Fedex saying that I need to complete a form in order for the shipment to come in. It's the DOT "Importation of Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Equipment Subject to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety, Bumper and Theft Prevention Standards" form. Anybody else have to do this?

I don't have the tracking info yet, so I have no idea what the lights' "Port of Entry" or anything like that is... and the company just started their three week vacation today. Awesome.

Got a UPS tracking # from S-mann and my new rt. tail should be here the 13th. I didn't get a DOT form with my other order, however I did have to send UPS $15.00 for some import tax. I just hope this light is crack free. I have been at this since May 5th. NihonX when did you send your order back??
