Blacklines p/n 63212225282
FR3 module p/n 61359263804
harness adaptor p/n 61122219698

IF your car was built after 09/2009 you only need the #282 Blackline tails. IF your car was built before Sept '09 you will need the new footwell module and harness.

Best thing would be to ask a dealer IF you could plug one tail light into your car's wiring harness and see IF the LED tubes light up.

Order the #282 blackline kit - its cheaper than order each tail light separately.

Thanks for the reply.

I thought I had read on other threads that this wouldn't be required and would be just PNP?

Only lci halogen models have to "jump wire" in tail lights connectors to make them works.
From another thread.

If that is the case then guess I'm sticking with the 3 bar ones, if I can find them
