This is a huge miss by BMW. They could make a lot more money if they made it easy to have people upgrade parts with newer/different model ones and listing backward compatibility.

The full set is ~900USD from the dealer.

They are on back order, but a friend ordered a set recently and they took 12 days to arrive.

Ask him if he can provide a picture of his receipt. That seems awfully cheap for the US. 12 days is great! My local dealership said back ordered for months,

They look soo much better than the old lights, I did leave all of the trim off just in case I changed my mind but they are definitely staying.

Hi. They look awesome mate. Just ordered a set my self and they should be arriving in a few days. I have seen a video online, but it was from the US and not sure if there wiring advice would be the same as UK? Donít suppose you would like to share which pins you swapped to get them working?
