Yet another LCI thread

So, my LCI tail lights arrived - installed them tonight

LCI lights from Tischer - shipping was damn expensive (about $90?) but now I know why. The box was MASSIVE and had heaps of padding. Total came in just under $400. Pretty happy with their service overall despite the initial stuffaround ~1 week before getting shipped.

Thanks to Angus for SMS help service when I couldn't get the damn plastic part out. Tip for others: remove the trunk rubber trim before trying to take out the middle plastic bit :P

Sorry about the iPhone 4S pics - I don't have a real camera

The LCi tails look great but I think those considering this upgrade should wait a month or two. BMW has just released the m-sport plus package for the 1 series coupe which you order from this month and goes into production in March. One of the features is led black line tails..... Best thou is the 313 18 in wheels are now also standard fitment...

Sweet. Are you sure these will become available for sale? I'll hold a bit longer if that's the case

Do you know how much space I will need if I record on 1080p?

32GB SD card:

1080p (30 fps): 4h 21m
960p (30 fps): 5h 26m
720p (60 fps): 4h 21
720p (30 fps): 8h 09m
WVGA (60 fps): 8h 09m

I'm going with 720@60fps. I reckon getting the higher frame-rate is better for this sort of thing... also means I can slow parts of the video down in post-processing for funky effects

But you only get 2.5 hrs of battery so that's really the limiting factor...

Nice. Think I'll stick with 1080p.

Btw, I was thinking of leaving the USB cable in the car so you can charge it from the USB port whilst it's mounted

Looks like I'll be recording in 720p... I've only got a 16GB card!

Are there pics of the new blackline lights?

I'm really loving the way the LCI looks, just makes the car feel "newer"

So stoked. Glad I didn't order a set yet.

Already sent the seller an email asking for a shipping price. Will report back when I know.
