Keith!
I think this part number is for outside light!
I have cracked inner light(smaller size light) .
Do you know part number for it please? Thx
There are some lights on eurocarparts website.ULO brand and some aftermarket one! Not sure if any of them will match design/pattern of existing original light?!
Here is the link,both look good but I only want the one which will match my existing light.Or will they both look the same ?

Have a look on Real OEM.

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=63_1189

Assuming you have a 2012 LCI, the part number would be 63217252779 or 63217252780.

Also the link you posted is to your ECP basket which no one will be able to see.

Ahh, I thought you were after the main cluster.

The offside inner light is: 63217252780

The ULO branded lights are made by the same parent company that supply BMW with the OEM ones (Odelo), so are more than likely exactly the same. ULO is just the brand name they use for 'aftermarket', although its the same. They certainly appeared to be exactly the same on face value when I compared them to OEM lights.

If I were you I would order the ULO light from Euro car parts (it will be significantly cheaper than OEM via the dealer, especially if you wait for one of their discount codes), then compare it. I am sure it will be identical. If you spot a difference though, return it and order from dealer.

Inner rear light bought from Eurocarparts branded as ULO is identical to OEM .Fitted nicely and all works! Think I paid with 35% Weekend discount around 86.

Nice, thanks for updating mate.

I've compared the outer ULO cluster with OEM and it was visually identical, but couldn't say for sure on the inner as I didn't check them - so I'm glad you were able to confirm.

As I said before, ULO is a brand name for the aftermarket arm of the same company (Odelo) that supply BMW (and many other manufacturers) with the OEM production parts.

When the biggest discounts are on at ECP (50% off etc), you can pick up an full set of ULO LCI lights for around 300 - which is what I tell people to do whenever there is a thread about LCI light upgrades. It always makes me laugh because people often try to pedal used BMW-branded LCI lights for 400-450 a set, on the premise they are OEM and 'better quality'. But it's rubbish. They are the same as the ULO brand, made in the same factory no doubt, and asking 450 for a used set is a pi55take when you can the same items new for 300!
