Finally lost the red turn signals.

Pet peeve of mine. I had the Blacklines on my E90 and tracked down the same for the X.
Nice.

Can you show some more pics installed? Is this a new rear tail light cover that whites out the top corner? Please clarify, thanks for sharing.

They're factory taillights, the entire unit. I'll take some when I can get outside to grab one.

Best I can do from the office loading bay door. I'll get some more up once it's washed and shiny!

Taillights

Has anyone seen a replacement for the red lights on the tailgate that would continue the "white" reflector into the tailgate lights. Seems to me that it looks like there should have been the white reflector on this light.

Maybe something aftermarket...

I love this set of blacklines just like I had on my Pre LCI E90...

Are amber turn signals available on these ??

I just love the Euro turn signals - combining both black line and amber turns.

Yes they are the proper amber turn signals. And I also had them on my '06 330i!

I share your disdain for red turn signals. For some reason, a lot of Americans prefer them. Multiple studies have shown the amber rear turn signals to be superior to red, in terms of recognition and safety.

Incidentally, my E90 LCI (2011 328i) wears the European tail lights, with amber turn signals. Our VW Passat also wears Euro tail lights with amber signals. I retrofitted both of those cars, due to my concern about visibility and safety.

Congratulations to your X1 for its new tail lights.

I got the set from a German fleabay seller; price was "if you have to ask" level. Although for anyone who's replaced BMW lights, not too high, and free shipping from Berlin.

The set comes in one box with all four lamps. The part # doesn't seem to be available here, unlike the E90 Blacklines. However, it's 63 21 2 167 285.

Good luck!

I'm all for amber turn signals, but would rather have the red lens with an amber bulb: a la my 2002 Jetta. Is that something that's available?

The European tail lights for the E90 LCI are red, but flash yellow. I have them on my car.

Here is an image of the European tail lights for the X1:

Did a little research on realoem.com and came up with the following part #'s for the Euro Taillights:

Rear light in the side panel, left: 63212990109
Rear light in the side panel, right: 63212990110
Longlife bulb 12V 21W: 63217160790

The USA part #'s are these:
Rear light in the side panel, left: 63212990111
Rear light in the side panel, right: 63212990112
Longlife bulb 12V 21W: 63217160790

Notice how the bulbs are the same which begs the question, is there an amber lens disguised as red in the Euro tails??
