I got these off ebay - see  :  HERE



I like them a lot, they are bright.  But the turn signal is out of synch with the standard led turn.


You don't have to use the turn signal aspect though.

If you use 5 pin relays,  then the turn signal will be in synch with the stock led signal.

 The running light is not always a free upgrade. It depends on the deal you had when you bought the bike.

If you had a reduction they may decide that they don't owe you an upgrade.   :003:

This is interesting, my bike was also one of the first batches, SE model, but without the running light. They did give me a bit of a discount though, so doubt they will fit it now free or charge. I was wondering if anyone knows how much it cost to get it retro-fitted ?

Bearing in mind my bike was is the workshop all day that probably means you're looking at the thick end of £500 for labour plus the parts. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you're looking at £7 / £800.....????

Hi Grizzly.  Can you confirm that the DRL was fitted free of charge. I bought one of the early bikes at beginning of August and my dealer (excellent dealer) was of the opinion that this light would be retro-fitted at BMWs expense in due course. When he tried to order the parts some time later he was told that BMW were not fitting this to the early bikes and we have reached a stalemate.  I have read on the forums of a few people having this fitted in UK.  If some have had it free of charge I will make representations directly to BMW UK.  Many thanks.

My bike was an original SE but the DRL was not fitted - dealer said could not fit and I was offered a £400 refund
