Retrofitting PRE-LCI trunk to LCI 335i?

I want a stock 2011 BMW 335i to have a 2008 BMW 335i trunk retrofitted because I like the pre-LCI tail lights more than the LCI tail lights.

Is this possible? If so, where can I buy the trunk?

Although this is the first time I have heard of anyone wanting to go from E90 LCI to E90 pre-LCI, I am sure it is possible.

Below is an example of a kit to change the rear of the E90 pre-LCI to the E90 LCI. It includes the trunk, lights, modules, and various other necessary parts. Therefore, you should be able to change the E90 in the other direction.

All you need is the trunk lid. The outer lights are the same shape. The problem you'll run into is wiring and coding, both of which are different with the led lights on the LCI.
