Would LCI off of a N55 fit an N54?

Are there any changes to the housings from 2010 to 11?

Yes they would fit. Use RealOEM.com to double check though.

just want to throw in a note that if your LED taillights are not working then try manuevering the brake light plug (not the snap in one that will either be in or not) as i thought one of my lights was bad only to realize later it worked after jimmying it around a few times.

Left side tail light looks like it has a slight gap. You can just loose the three tail light len bolts and realign them. You could even use a small file to open up the "eye holes" for more adjustment. Just put some paint over what you file away - to rust proof it.

LIC's look GREAT. And I love your PE too!

Today did my blacklines freaking sick when you see them in person much much better than on photos. I will see them in evening again damn they look great. I am so happy that I did blacks not standard. You can see better LED bars on blacks....


BTW thanks for diy

@RimasRS you are quite welcome.

I totally agree with you - the Blacklines are really a nice mod. Factory special look. You know when I was talking to the guy in charge of ///M Performance parts at the IAA Frankfurt autoshow... he kind of hinted that BMW will not offer these blackline lights again for future models. The reason is bc of EU laws. Apparently BMW got away with offering them for the EU markets for the e8x models... but they won't or rather can't offer them for the F2x/F3x models. Thats a shame bc they really make the car look GOOD! This rep also hinted he is not sure how long they will offer the Blacklines for the parts network. So IF anyone is thinking whether to buy them or not... you better snap them up while supplies last!

Go into the BC or iDrive and make sure you have selected the lights to flash when locking your car. You could also just plug in one of your old lights to the car's harness and see IF your lights flash then. You don't have to reinstall the tail light, just plug it into the car's electrical wiring harness.

Just installed these myself. Didn't think I'd ever pick these up but was surprised how such a subtle shade can really make the back end look so sharp. Ordered from Schieddman on Thurs, received on Tues.

Yes, the #282 kit comes with new bulbs and a gasket for the tail light housing.
