Got this off amazon, 100% plug and play and fits into the OEM trim piece and boom, let there be light! Pros are the orange matches 100% with the "classic" (orange) LEDs. Its also pretty bright and can be dimmed via the idrive. Fitment is OEM and plug and play. Cons are, there is no white led built in for "sport" mode. The 3 pin connector has 1 wire missing, which im assuming could have been used for a white LED.

For $16 and 5 mins of labor, can't complain. Anything to spice up the interior of these cars is a plus.

A few weeks back i posted this and at the time the LED only had the orange 'classic' color. Now they have a version where you can switch back and forth between the orange and white 'sport' colors. Pretty neat. Going to try it out.

Did you end up giving the m-perf front lip replica a try?

Hi Eric,
I actually decided to go with their new "lightweight" style lip. I have it at my house, just haven't gotten it over to the body shop for paint/install yet. Will update with pics once it is on the car.

got a link? I don't see a lightweight style one from bulbexpert so maybe its another seller. Definitely post up some pics i think a lot of people would be interested in a lightweight style replica.

The lip is sold by MagicDrift, not bulbxpert. The last lip I bought was from MagicDrift as well. I liked that last one a lot but hit a crate on the freeway that tore it off. Here is a link to the product:

How well does it fit? And how do you like it so far? For $60 itís not a bad idea to try it out if itís a plastic lip like the lightweight

I picked up these from aliexpress, can anyone who previously bought them comment on fitment and quality?

Pictures look good, pricing is even better, anywhere from 50-80% less than traditional retailers (whom some I suspect straight up dropship from here)

Around 300$ for seat rear carbon shells, 15$ for door handle trim and 30$ for dct surround carbon bit
