    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.

    Your lucky day. I’ve just been through this nightmare. Took Ocean 3 days to fit and code mine properly. Ian had to give them some hints. Part numbers as per my invoice.:thumbsup:

    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 :thumbsup:

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

    Mate they cost me £1268 but I am so happy with them. It’s shocking that they weren’t standard on a £76k M4 but were standard on a poverty spec M3.
