LED front and rear turn signals

New member here with a 2007 650i coupe. I've always liked the LED front and rear turn signals that came on the 2008+ 650i/M6. I am assuming to get the same look, I'd have to find 2008+ OEM turn signals (front and rear) or is it as simple as replacing my bulbs with LEDs?

thanks in advance!

Welcome IL_BMW_650. So in regrads to your question, you have to replace the lights. The rear is simple enough but the front depends on if you want to replace just the turn signal section or the whole headlight. The rear I believe you can just buy a new set along with an adapter cable to prevent flickering in the LEDs (search for this on this forum) The front LED turn signal assembly will also require some wiring modification to work as well. This too was done by members here just do a seach. So to put simply you would need new lights not just bulb replacement.

thanks for the response Pablo. yeah, I would only want to replace the front turn signal to the LED version. Would the 2008+ front LED turn signal just be a simple plug and play solution?

Welcome to the board!!!

Here are links from the M6 Board forum below:

2006 M6 Turn signal upgrade to 2008 LCI LED turn signals

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e63...n-signals.html


2006 M6 tail light upgrade to LCI LED's.

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e63...-lci-leds.html

There is some good info there and here as well if you do a search.

I too want to do this mod to my '05 but only the turn signals in the front and full tail lights and from what I gather you need adapters in the front and rear.
The LCI fronts are expensive ($2000.00+ expensive)....

Here is a thread for you to review, while Dan (whatheheck) on the M5Board bought adapter cables I believe, the guy in this thread shows a DIY for wiring yourself.
