Default M4 LCI rear lights

Help!

Garage is trying to fit these to my F83 right now - brand new LCI rears from Cotswolds on here.... but they are saying they won't fit, that the plastic trim is different from the current ones. What am I missing? Are there other parts required to fit the rear lights, if so does anyone have the part numbers? I assumed it would all come as a set

You also need Lci rain gutters and wiring loom. Phil at Cotswolds has the part numbers

I can supply a wiring loom that converts from standard to Lci lights.

Just to let people know. The full BMW retro fit kit replaces the whole of the wiring for the rear of the car. They've given me back masses of 'spaghetti'. I guess that's why they struggled with the correct fitting. I assume Ian's wiring loom just changed the bits necessary to enable the new rear lights to work properly.

Exactly right

Ian did mine today, just added a simple set of connectors, easy peasy.
Thankyou Ian

Mate they cost me £1268 but I am so happy with them. Itís shocking that they werenít standard on a £76k M4 but were standard on a poverty spec M3.
