Just unearthed this old thread, in light of this discussion (pun intended...).

OMG those are awesome! I would pay good money for that. I want the inner brake lamps up light up so bad just like the e39 celis lights.

Mmm mmm. E39 Celis tail lights.

Those look good Wayne. Maybe a little too modern for me on the e53. But I can certainly see the appeal.

If I am to upgrade the rear lights including the housing, it will be something like this\https://www.ebay.com/itm/2000-2006-B....c100005.m1851
If not I would replace the halogen to LED and code for it.

Bingo - I think that was his intention.

I am curious to know how folk with LCI cars that have these after-market LED tail fittings get on with wiring changes. From what I can see, most (if not all) of these after-market lights are wired for pre-LCI tail wring and the LCI wiring is slightly different.... do you modify the car or the tail light?
