Rear LED's on coupe WITHOUT Facelift Boot Lights
 
I have just installed rear BMW OEM LED's on my car, but the boot lights are still the old ones (sorry dont have a pic it was dark out when I installed it)

Do you think it looks weird to have facelift lights and old style boot lights, or shall I change the boot lights as well

Thanks
Jordan

If you got the Clear/Red LED Tails I think the pre-facelift trunk lights look just fine. Personal preference though, some people feel you should do both for the full new style look.

I say buy the new trunk lamps, usually the old ones plastic doesn't match. You'll like the new ones as they are mostly red and match the horizontal lines.

changing the boot lights was the hardest part of this install imo

Firstly, thanks to all for the input

So you reckon its best if I install boot lights to get someone to do it for me if I'm not a very good DIY'er?

Thats a nice car by the way alex (is that a mtech sport rear bumper with standard diffuser?)

ACS M-Tech Diffuser I believe. As far as installing the trunk lights, it's not THAT hard just removing all the trunk lining pressure clips is a pain. Other then that, take your time and dont force anything and you should be okay.

I think you can do it, it just takes the time to get the covering off the back and fudge(twist and turn) the lamp around to get it to slip in. If you take the one out you'll know how to put the other back in.

Thanks. It is an OEM M-tech rear bumper with an AC Schnitzer rear diffusor. This diffusor is much nicer and cleaner looking than the standard one(imho).
