LCI tail light conversion

Hello. I ve got a bmw e70 non lci and i want to make the conversion to LCI tail lights, they look gorgeous.
Should i buy oem used tail lights or new aftermarket ones ? If you have any experience with AM tail lights, you can share it. I d appreciate very much

Curious as wel. The Depo LCI retrofit tail lights are enticing. Anyone have experience with them?

Hi,

I have OE LCI Tails on my pre-LCI 4.8, much improved for sure.
Having had bad experiences with aftermarket lights in the past, I couldn't take the chance again.

There are always a bunch of used LCIs on eBay...

Thanks,
John

I'd generally consider Depo to be just a step above merely functional.

I've had the Depo for 2 years now. No problems at all. Due to limited garage space, car is parked outside. No leaks or cracks, etc. Great upgrade!

5Xtheproblems, thanks for the update. Can you post a few pics with the brake lights on?

Considering grabbing a set for $400.

Has ANYONE ever seen their tail lights when driving?


(I suppose backing into a spot at night in front of a glassfront store....)

Will do once I get off work.

& yes, I enjoy unlocking the car and seeing the LCI LED bars glow as opposed to the pre-LCI strips. Sure, I don't see them while driving, but they're there for other's viewing pleasure
