Luckily not - if you've got LED front lights (which I have) then there is no need to change any of the wiring.Hi, I'm looking at doing this.
I phoned a local MINI dealer up who quoted over £500 to supply, fit and code these lights! I obviously won't be doing this but the guy mentioned about having to swap some pins around on the wiring.
Was this the case with you when you fitted yours?
Good news - mine arrived next day - excellent service from them....I've just bought a pair from the same seller (Mini Cooper F56 14- Genuine LED Rear Lights Pair Driver Passenger Union Jack 8053369526997 | eBay)
Managed to get similar 20% off and 2 left now if anyone is looking so a really good deal for genuine lights.
Just need to get an OBD adaptor and Bimmercode now.
Bimmercode is in EnglishYea, I'm in no rush for them as they're an early birthday present to myself but just bought them now to secure the good price!
I'll offset the cost further by selling my current pre-LCI lights when these are fitted like I have done with most parts I've replaced on my MINI!
Have you got the Bimmercode settings that need changing in English or will they show up as German when I connect to my car?
Hi Sorry if has been covered before as new to my F56 JCW - looking to replace with UJ rear lights - what did you use to recode - software for phone? Interface box? - thank you for any infoHi there,
I got mine a week ago (bought from eBay) and I didn't need to fiddle with wires. This depends on what model you have I believe. I just needed to code a few things which was easy finding the info on the web.
That's the adapter i have and it works with my android phoneI'm yet to install mine but I've done the research and you need the Bimmercode app and a compatible OBD reader. The Bimmercode website has a list of compatible readers and this is the one I'm looking to buy below. People use other readers which are cheaper and seem to work but personally I'm going to stick with this one as it's on the compatible list and given what it is you're doing, I don't want to take any risks buying something not officially listed!

If you want OEM, a Mini dealership will be able to order them for you.I see everyone on the Thread is from UK. Is there anyway to ship the Union Jack lights from the US? I only find links shipping from UK.
I have the transparent lights installed on my 2017 JCW White Silver. They blend well and standout at the same time. I think you would really like the look. I'll dig up a picture and post it.
