I believe you can just pop them out and disconnect them then pop the other ones in, you need to have a light already at the bottom of your door (not sure if all G29s have this).
Took delivery today of the Z4. They tried to pop in the BMW-brand lights and they don’t fit this model. Apparently BMW doesn’t make them for this car.
then they probably ordered the wrong ones , you have 68 and 50mm ones the 50mm is for the Z4.

Marcus those ones from ECS seem to be the 68mm ones. Raven said it had to be the 50mm ones. Just make sure you can get a refund in case they don't fit

Ok so for whatever reason online it doesn’t list the actual LED projectors for the Z4 M40i. This is an error in the system where it believes the vehicle doesn’t have extended light package, which it does. This was confirmed by Cotswold BMW when I ordered.

There are a number of different projectors so be careful to order the correct one. You need part number: 63312463924

They’re super easy to fit, took less than five minutes. Just need a trim removal tool to click the old ones out and then it’s simple plug and play, after picking which projected lens you want.

How did you fit them?

They do make them, it’s part 63312463924

There is an error on the BMW system saying they’re not available for the G29, but they are a perfect fit :thumbsup:

Five minute job, plug and play, couldn’t have been simpler.

Took longer for me to decide which slide to use :D

Like with most things, buy cheap and you’ll buy twice. The BMW projector is more expensive yes, but it’s a perfect fit, the colours are vivid and bright.

Similar yes but a totally different design to the one pictured, particularly with the way the slide is now encapsulated between two pieces.

Wish I’d taken photos before fitting now :headbang:

I got mine fitted. Not sure they fitted them right as it’s not a perfect circle. How do you change the slides. You can twist the lens out, but I can see where they put the slide.
