Default Re: DIY: OEM LED License Plate Lights for CSL bootlid

There are 2 styles of csl bootlids. One style which is a true replica of the real csl bootlid which uses e39 license plate lights. Thats the style vorstiner makes. With that style, you cannot use the oem m3 license plate lights because they're a different shape.

There's another csl style bootlid (hybrid style) that uses the oem license plate bar across the back. If thats the style you bought, then you can use your oem license plate bulb holders and just buy generic LED bulbs to replace the incandescent OEM ones.

Oem CSL style:


Hybrid style with oem license plate light bar:

old tread, but i wanted to update everyone, i just order the parts needed and the connector 61 13 2 360 043 that plugs into the LED light comes with the terminal pins now, so you dont need to order them separate unless you order the ones with the pigtail.

What i ordered to make it plug and play with no cutting

2x 61 13 2 360 043 Connector that plugs into the LED lights
2x 63 26 7 193 293 LED licence plate lights
1x 61 13 6 931 929 Connector to plug into the factory harness
4x 61 13 0 005 197 Terminal with wire to plug into the LED light connector
2x 61 13 0 006 664 Terminal with wire to plug into the factory harness connector. (i bought 3 of these to wire in a trunk switch)
