Will I need to buy a new LCM for a '01 330Ci if I buy the OEM LED tail lights?
The changover year is '01. I'm not certain of the buid dates. I'd have to look it up, or you your LCM part# on back. But you seem to be fine with an '01.

mine is a 5/00 so i would have to buy a new LCM so it totally doesnt make it worth it, those things are $$$
This could certainly be correct. I don't recall the build cut-off dates. A new LCM from the dealer is like $170 with discount. But as you know many E46s are having short lives to accidents(moment of silence). Thus a used LCM can go from anywhere from $20 on ebay to $90 at an expensive salvage yard.
