Now I understand, it never crossed my mind that the I have never seen an m4 with led tails just the m3.

Even some ordinary cars run around with LEDs

Am I the only one that doesn't really care about rear lights?

I almost never see them working, unless my gf is picking me up, or I see her from my window taking the car.

My 16 M4 already has those man

So called this when everyone was thinking OLEDs were coming on the M4 LCI. Maybe on that new ClubSport GTS thing.

Yep I agree I had the LCIs on my M3 and I like these more. I like the "flat bottom" instead of the "coffee scooper" bottom.

Thanks
BTW, the M4 has always had LED taillights. It is just the shape that is changing with the LCI.

It is the brake lights and rear turn signals that are incandescent that will likely become LED with the LCI.

If I am not mistaken, the reverse light remained incandescent on the F80/F30 LCI.

Me too. I had to pop out and check what my rear lights look like so I had a comparison.

Looks great. I like them better than the OLED's

Less is more folks. These are clean.

Skip to 5:50 for a side by side comparison on the M3. M4 looks to be the same...

I knew the F82 was not going to get the oLED's. Such a bummer.

M3 dip on the bottom where M4 are strait. Otherwise very close.

I think these LCI taillights look better on M3 than they do on M4.

Based on the single photo of the M4 LCI tails, also agree the M3 LCI ones look better.
