Yea I don't get why some people are getting lights and others of us are getting oddly ignored.

Bimmian has overlays in 'dark', light would look better I think. They are looking into it for me. Something like this, just a slight difference.

Yeah I don't want any of that murdered out crap, just a 85/90% to take a little of the edge off the red.

Did you end up getting the lights? I can also confirm with everyone that the Blackline LCI taillights DO in fact work with a 09' 128 with halogen front headlights!

I got my LCI Blackline tails on Friday. Put them in tonight and WOW are they nice. Plug and play on my car, easy to install.

I would say they are as tinted as a new VW tail light. I also have a 2011 GTI and it's lenses are almost the same style of smoked/red. So if anyone want's to know what the color looks like they can have a look at a current VW.

Took about 5-6 days to ship as it said on the web site. I got an email from FedEx last Tuesday asking me to provide a document for customs explaining why they didn't meet DOT specs. I waited a couple days and before I could complete the form they tail lights showed up at my house.

I ordered from S-Man

So I filed my complaint on the 23rd and Danny had until June 3rd to respond to Paypal. I sent him an email yesterday asking him to reply ASAP so I could order from his competition.

No email response but PayPal issued my refund. Proving even though I ordered the same day Satalite did and got tons of updates from Danny about delays, he still had no intention to ship.

Now to order!

Edit: ordered from Schmiedmann and it was $70 cheaper than bmwpartsonline.co.uk. $350 shipped with PayPal fees and currency conversion. Would have been $344 with a traditional credit card. Danny was $420

Yah the prices came down a lot! I think I paid $350 from Danny after he gave me a discount. Glad to hear you saved a good bit!

Satalite, is it too late to get in on this group buy? Some asshole busted out one of my taillights in a parking lot a few hours ago, so I need a replacement.

This group buy never came together. We all just went ahead and ordered from European vendors.

In the meantime, let me know if you need a "normal" tail light. Since I have the LCI's now, I have a set of pre-LCI tail lights. If you want to replace the one that's broken, sent me a PM and you can have it (just pay shipping).

I saw 1Lazy's blacklines and I would say that a mild tint is needed to make it look more deep red.

Ordered from Schmiedmann yesterday (Holiday), the site even had a note saying they would resume today (tues). I wake up this morning to a tracking # in my email (even active, imagine that!). Delivery next Monday.

any ideas why there are two different sets of blackline rear lights on the schiedman website. What's the difference between non xenon and xenon in the rear. $70 difference in price

You want the Xenon version. The other "cheaper" halogen version doesn't have the cool LED light up and is just for aesthetics...

Get the more expensive one!
