Did your new taillights come with the OEM retrofit wire harness kit?

dont know much about this but a simple search found this...

i wouldnt start playing with those wire untill you have read that thread because i read a little and it seems you need a certain LKM/LCM

If the LKM/LCM doesnt have resistors you could potentionaly blow out your leds in your new light

Youll need to get the retrofit wiring kit. You can get that from thebmwpartstore.com. You'll then have to ask someone locally to code your car for led tails. It shouldn't be more than a few bucks! Dont splice the wires !!!
