ya the OEM retro fit kit has an extra cable to address the pin issue. Even on the OEM retrofit LEDs, the outer light isnt illuminated (empty pin), they splice it to the brake light pin to get it to function when brakes applied.

One advantage to the new LCM for early 01 cars may be to run wiring to the appropriate pin to get the LEDs working per production cars (this may work on 09/2001 cars too). But as we've discussed, Seattle BMW technicians cannot be paid to determine this prior to install.

Im getting all the WDS info together for a indy shop. Maybe they can tell me.
