Hey guys, another vid I made for anyone looking to upgrade their trim to the LCI one with the LED lighting. Your car must have the ambient lighting option (you can check by seeing if the lower trim above the cupholders have an LED light that turns on when the interior lights are turned off - turning the light switch to position 1)

Tools required:
- Ratchet/T20 bit or T20 screwdriver
- Flathead screw driver
- Trim removal tool (optional)

Trim part number: 64119358940 (Purchased from Sun Motor Cars BMW - Contact Brian and say Jakub from the forums referred you)
- Wiring harness: ebay item 173343122030

Trim tool if you wish to purchase one:

So the trim piece, is it shinny black when you got it?

Are there any issues with disconnecting either the radio or heater control panels? I had a Volvo and that would cause all kinds of errors when you did that.

So as long as you have the led in the bottom panel above the cup holder this should work? I take it the F34 GT would be the same?

It is gloss black, correct. I painted it flat black prior to installation.

No codes or any issues with disconnecting the radio/ac.

Yup, you need that LED light in that panel above the cup holder for it to work. The wire harness will take the power connector to that LED and split it to the new trim and to the panel.
