I'm sure you can work with the vendor to get it resolved. They wouldn't leave you SOL since it wouldn't be your fault they were faulty. The only risk you take is if they are not PnP with your car which people took when the LCI lights first came out in December.

They are made of glass?? Really?? Interesting. And if they did sell them then they would be opening their doors to lawsuits against regulations from the DOT and anyone else (BMW/and other consumers).

UPDATE - Waiting on one more vendor who will be emailing me on Monday about the lights. Plan on the Group Buy starting next week sometime. I will have them post up the thread in the commercial section w/link for checkout and we can all start!

Glass? That cant be right. It could be they are not DOT approved b/c no vendor to date has applied for DOT approval.

I highly highly HIGHLY doubt these are made of glass. Isn't there someone in the Aussie or Brit sections who can confirm?

+1. I believe there are quite a few Euro folks who should chime in. Might have to grab them from their secluded sections to get their attention though..

No problem. Someone had to step up and organize it! I had some extra time so wanted to utilize it to help everyone on the forum get a pair that wanted it!

Added you all to the master list on the OP. Please refer to original post to see updated pictures.

Unfortunately the only vendor to say they can 100% do it is stating that they can only get "40 units" in the first order (---within 3-4 weeks---) which means that the people beyond "40 units" will have to wait a few more weeks after everyone else, but it still guarantees you a set. Be sure to jump on board to be one of the very few 1'ers with the cool blackline LCI tails NOT AVAILABLE anywhere else!

One of the few compares of LCI vs LCI Blackline. The difference is not a subtle one. (On a 1M, but you get the idea)

Going to get people to excited now! Will update main thread with that photo if you don't mind.

UPDATED PHOTOS to include an LCI / Blackline LCI comparison!
The new...BMW 1 Series LCI Taillights now in 1080p HD for 10 payments of only $49.99.... Sorry your mention of the word definition turned me into an ignorant infomercial sales douche.

Yes, but I highly doubt that a cop will know/take the time to really check inside the housing for the reflector...?

If I missed your name and you had previously requested your name on the list let me know ASAP so I can figure out where you fit in.

I have updated the list after going through the thread and realized I had missed a few people... sorry! Didn't realize these taillights would get to 50+ orders! Time for bed.
