    I think MARTYND has fitted a set without new LCM - his is a 2001 coupe not a vert though.

    See my thread on the subject

    Anyone bought E46 coupe LED aftermarket lights
    I'm loving it

    Jan 2001 will be ok, but wrenny, your LCM is modified so 'may' need recoding even with resistor packs

    I was under the impression that I would need an LCM flush only - sounds painful - as my LCM is suitable for the led lights.

    I'm still unclear on whether or not this will show a tamper dot after the mileage

    If it did I don't think I'll bother.
    I'm loving it

    Wouldn't show anything like tamper dots, but if you go for the OEM with adapter wiring, then all you need is a re-flash

    I would forget the idea of OEM because your LCM would need replacing and therefore you could be looking at circa £600.

    You'll be fine with a Jan build, mines September and had no problems with warning lights, eagle eyes are as close to oem as you can get, quarter of the price and comes with all required resistors/cancellors.

    i have read somewhere that an 09/2001 will in fact be ok but anything before either needs an lcm or some type of resistors to lower the voltage which are the type i had fitted before only they were quite bulky inside any help to clear this up would be greatly appreceated
