I couldn't go for blacklines :cry: Insurance company said cause their tinted it'll void my insurance due to my age. :x


Surely if they were available as an OEM option from the dealer and Emarked there should be no issues with your insurance.
It’s a new one on me to be fair. I obviously informed my insurance company but didn’t think about the tints.

Who are you with? And how much do you pay a year?

I did explain that to the chap on the phone but he apparently went and spoke to a manager and said it's because of the tints

Forgive the question (still New to the 1 series world), but are those OE BMW facelift rear lights or aftermarket?

They are darkline lows and they are genuine BMW parts. And they look the business. If you currently have 3 strip LED rear lights then these will plug and play. Best visual mod that I ever did to my car.

I have an e82 facelift? Would they be fitted (3 strip LED) as standard? Completely clueless about it tbh, my last BMW was a 95 e34 Image

That exhaust looks awesome too. MPE is it?
Thanks. It’s not MPE, just dual exit tips that were done by an exhaust shop in Romford. Backbox delete and straight pipe.
Looks really smart. How's it sound?

Yeah it's come out well! It was brushed aluminium and starting to get a bit scratched
