Got mine in yesterday...now If my paperwork would hurry up and get here from Germany so i can pick my car up I will put them on.

Also, haven't seen a side by side with normal LCIs so I will take a picture with one blackline and one normal LCI tail so people can see the difference.

Well looks like ECM has them on this side of the ocean for those of you still looking to get them.

For the people that are importing them from Schmiedmann, are you paying for import taxes/fees? Schmiedmann has them for $341.72 shipped. ECS has them for $379.95 + $12.78 shipping.

All of these lights require an import fee (14-20$) depending on vendor of choice. ECS might already have them in the US so you might be able to get away with no import fee since most of these companies are shipping directly from Europe.

I saw some where here or on another post that someone order from Schmiedmann and when it arrived to LA, Fedex called the buyer and told him that he needs to put up another $80 for fees and taxes. I must of been mistaken. Thanks guys.

I was quoted $355 at time of purchase from Schmiedmann, and that's what I paid. I debated on purchasing these over the course of a week or so before pulling the trigger, and the list price and VAT varied after several days of checking each time.

I will also add that I could not pay via credit card on their site, and I had to opt for Paypal instead. Purchased my lights on August 16th, and I received them on August 20th.

You want the high version of Blackline for e82 1 series coupe, it costs more.

The difference is the LED:
Highline has the new LED design of 2012+
Basic has NONE!!

+1. YuP! I learned that the hard way. Luckily my dealer allowed me to return them.

Just order the #282 kit... its the cheapest way to get the right LED Blacklines for an e82/e88.

1). Ordered from ECS Tuning yesterday.

2). UPS shows up at my door this afternoon.

3). Half-hour later:



Love the look. Very subtle. Wasn't going for the can-of-tint-spray or the Lamin-x-type wrap effect. As someone mentioned (Dack?),
the look is very much like a VW tail. Very nicely smoked...classy. It separates the tails (especially on a red car) better that the ones
that came on the vehicle.

That said, the 4-month-old OEM LCIs that are totally virgin are for sale! PM me if intertested!

I ordered on June 20th. I sent them an email on the 25th and got a reply back on the 29th.
I am still waiting for resolution on this issue.

They are trying to get BMW to do something about the whole ordeal. I even asked if I could just order two left lights and just sell one of the sets locally to avoid having to deal with customs. They just told me to wait a few more days for an answer.

I'm sure it'll be worth it when I can finally install them, but I should not have had to wait almost three months for just one light.
