Arrow 2011 LCI Tail Lights Retrofit Kit - Plug&Play

Hey Guys,

We just finished working on retrofitting the BMW 2011 LCI tail lights on Pre-LCI E70 X5 model.

Those of you who are looking to upgrade the old E70 look to a newer look, please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to assist you. The new LCI darker tail light looks very nice and the thicker bars are truly glowing in the night time.

Kit comes with 100% BMW OEM parts and requires 20-30 minutes to install it. Everything is Plug&Play and requires no additional modifications to your vehicle.*

Big thank you to Andrew(phattbam) for letting me work on his car.

* Coding is required to make this kit work properly without any errors on the dashboard.

Pre-LCI tail lights:



LCI tail lights with pre-lci lights on the lift gate:





LCI tail lights after coding:



















Thank you,
Aleks

Looks really good actually. I didn't like them at first but now beginning to change my mind.

How much will this cost and im assuming coding will need to be done by the dealer?

Tail lights are expensive ($850) ... the coding needs to be done by autologic shop.

so coding is required, so technically not COMPLETELY plug and play as you stated correct?

can an ecu be shipped for coding to be done?

is it possible for someone to just by the tail lights on their own and purchase the wiring/harness separately? and of course, paying for the necessary coding...

"plug&play" - meaning that no modification, cutting or splicing is required to make this retrofit work on your car.

Unfortunately we would need to have your car at the shop to make it work.

I can check if there is an Autologic dealer near you.

Is this LCI LED standard on the 2012 X5? also do you have any pictures of the lights on when stepping on the brakes.

These are 100% LED? No bulb lights like in the older models?

I think the only "coding" that's required is to remove the bulb check for the tail lights. Is that correct? If so, that's pretty simple.
