I know we've went over this before, but on my 2010 the Xenon blacklines were plug in play. Everything works as they should. I tried halogen blacklines prior and the DRL's and running lights didn't work properly.

Ah so I see now
You've got two running lights I reckon it would look better if you could get it coded to only use the LED as running lights but either way at least you got them working! Nice job

I suppose if one could code out the running lights all together and find a 12 V source for the LEDs.

Don't think it's going to happen on a halogen car unless the driving/tail light portion of the stop/tail can be coded out as I mentioned above.

Pretty sure I can figure something out that won't need coding...

I'll certainly pass it on, if I do...but I don't want any other lights on with the LEDs.

On non black cars the CF winglet on the rear is a pretty big difference too.

Factory offset stripe is definitely the most visually striking thing I've done.

Yep you're right.. Most cosmetics on a black car are pretty subtle.

Anyway, aside from the fact that blacklines look awesome, hopefully some of you got a good idea how to make these work. It's definitely worth it!

MY LCI tails arrived today (they are COOL!!!!!!!)

I've been playing around with them, here's what I came up with:

Do this if you want the LCD bars on at night, and NO other lights on...the LCD bars will work as brake lights too:

There are 2 connectors: a 3-wire with only 2 wires (outboard connector) and a 6-wire with only 5 wires (inboard connector)....on the 3-wire connector, open the clip and move the center wire to the unused slot, pin #1. Your LCD's are now on and work as regular nite taillights AND brake lights, and the bulb that was on before is now off, no bulb-out warning. VERY nice! However, there are still 2 other bulbs still on, one of which is also an additional brake light. This is what I did with those...no laughing, please...remove the 4 bulb holder that has the 6-pin connector...now, paint those bulbs with black paint...use a hi-temp paint, preferably exhaust paint, but at least engine paint...rough the bulb up a bit with some fine emory...give it 2 coats....do NOT paint the 2 bulbs that are the back-up light and the orange turn signal.

Now you have no bulbs messing up your beautiful LCD bars, and everything works....sweet!

How did you open the 3 wire clip? is there a mechanism? And yes you are right, they are cool!!
