Thanks MWPos, but if it won't work with the LCI LED I guess you'll have to remove me. If you do get the switch for the LCI LED count me in

For vehicles with LED Fog lights = No S5A1A=No
Control element light 61319311216

So I have to agree with your assessment that the switches which I will receive will not work with LCI's at all because with or without fog light LEDs, the switch numbers are not the same.
Which is funny because I ordered the Euro headlight switch from ECS before this post and although it was the same old part number for xenon (61319192744) they told me it would work with LCI LEDs. It is fully functional 100% (Auto, adaptive, front, rear fogs), everything works since I installed it, perfectly. I would think your parts would also work with xenon or LED as long as the car has front fogs.

Thanks.
Some 528's do not have Xenon headlights. This causes some "headlight envy" within our F10 family. 535s and 550s have Xenon. You will need the Xenon light model.
You are on the list.

I have hoped that these switches will work with LCIs with LED foglights, and needed only one brave soul to buy one and try it. Just to be perectly clear, do you have a 61319192744 installed in your LCI with LED foglights and it works perfectly? I'm sorry to ask you to repeat yourself...I just want to be 100% sure that this is what you meant.
Thank you!

I'm not exactly a brave soul, but yes I have a 2014 LCI 528-xdrive that I picked up last night and switch number 91319192744 works every with function of the LED Lighting Package perfectly and adds the rear fog lights. I'm not new to BMW or adaptive lights so I know I am not missing any functions. It was a simple 4 minute plug and play (testing all of the functions took longer though, but the install is so simple it's crazy)

nolonyc and ImolaRedM, with wrickem's post in mind, do you want to be put back on to the list of people to be notified when the switches are ready to be sold?

It'll work just like it did in your old car - then it's " SUV on my azz in a line of traffic, up goes the rear sunshade, on go the rear fogs, and SUV riding my butt no more"

buyer list 9/12

Anyone with a question mark, please post or PM to tell me if you do want me to let you know when the switches arrive, and if so, how you'd like to receive it (USPS, Canadian Post, or local pickup) if you do buy one. Thank you!

I'm still standing fast on my estimate of $75 per switch for local pickup, $85 if shipped via USPS Priority mail, and $95 for shipping to Canada, with tracking. I mentioned $85 recently; that estimate included US shipping.

Because there are a lot of us who want this switch for Xenon headlight cars, and none of us who want the non-Xenon variant, I've asked the buyer to up the buy to 25 of the Xenon-correct variant and to buy zero of the non-Xenon variant. I have adjusted the following list to remove the reference to the switch number as it is no longer a discriminator.

ae86pwr (USPS)
Ausdude (USPS)
Ausfahrt (USPS)
Bigdeep1 (Remove from list?)
Bmw maniac (Remove from list?)
