Umnitza LED tail on '01 M3

bought the LED tail light from Umnitza.

My '01 M3, works flawless,,, that means no reflash, no failure, no flickering, no LCM update was required,,


To me, it was a perfect fitment.






backing of the light. The resistor was pre-installed.



Thank you Umnitza for the fast shipping too!

-minsoo.

Is this the one you bought?

http://www.umnitza.com/product_info.php?products_id=271

I want to get them for my 330Ci. The tails are the exact same fitment between the M3 and 330Ci, right? Was it easy?

They look great.

nismo skyline - i'll take some night pics later. (it won't be as good as your skyline though,, hehe)

AlexM105 - that's exactly what i bought (with resistor pack installed). I believe all e46 coupes have a same tail light. The installation was done in 5 min. Oh, one more thing, this aftermarket LED light is slightly dimmer than the OEM one, which i actually liked better. Lastly, since your car is 2003, I'm not sure if you even need the resistor packs.

Umnitza, charm in,,

BMWPower06 - I like this set up for now. Thanks for your advice though,,

Sweet, thanks for the reply.

You need them to avoid going to the dealer and to properly have them set up.

We have 50+ sets in stock now.

congratulations,, you'll love them.


deafboy - thanks for your pm.

1. As you can see from the pics, ,, to me the fitment is perfect.
2. Mine doesn't have the plastic cover in the backing of the light.

seems like you're living in WA. I'll let you know when we have our next local meeting,, let's cruise together and i'll show you these in a person.

can't wait to see your car
