2006 M6 Turn signal upgrade to 2008 LCI LED turn signals

Here you go for sharing.

Finally got both rear and front turn signals upgraded to LCI 2008 and on LED turn signals.

Another worthy upgrade.

See attached word document for DIY.

See attached document on how to remove the original headlights to gain access to turn signals.

Pictures are worth 1,000 words, videos are worth a million words.

Click on the youtube 2 minute short video link below.

Hey Dan,

I have to admit that you're car is awesome!!
Anyway, I have some question about the turn signal on your headlight.
What did you do to remove the yellow turn signal on the old headlamp?

Thank you, Dan

Hi. Thanks for the compliments.

I'm sorry I dont quite understand the question.

The old turn signal was removed. I installed a new 2008 model year turn signal that has built in LED's.
The turn signals are separate module from the headlamps.

Hope that answers your question.

Thank you for the prompt reply

What I mean by yellow turn signal is the one that is on the headlamp
I put some attachment to make sure you understand which part I am referring
Thank you

Ah, thanks, now I understand your question better.

You are asking about the amber headlamp corner reflector.

I applied a decal over it to cover the ugly amber reflector.

I purchased the decal from a guy named Phi Dinh.

If you are interested on purchasing a pair of decals, you can eMail him directly at phidinh16@gmail.com
Tell him Dan Loyola recommend him.

Here's what it looks like close up.

Hope that helps.

Hey Dan,
Did you put the amber headlamp corner reflector inside the headlamps or you just stick it outside?
Any special technique that I have to know before I installed it?

So you can do the LCI turn signals without having to do the whole lights? On Tishcer site it says you have to. Since you did it I assume you are the one who is right....I want to do this! Much cheaper than replacing the whole unit.

I put the decal on the outer surface of the headlight.
Its a lot of work opening the headlight assembly and I didnt want to mess with that.

Re: application of decal, the seller Phi Dinh will eMail you instructions on how to apply the decal/sticker.
Make sure you follow the instructions well for best adherence.

The head light and turn signals are individual/separates, so yes, you can do them separately.
It' been done a few times before. Just do a search here and you will see a few other guys that have done the turn signal upgrades.

NOTE: The headlight upgrade to LCI facelift requires special wiring or coding of software and there is only 1 guy here that have done it succesfully without any errors being thrown, and his mechanic wont share with us how he did it, his mechanic said its complicated, so if you upgrade your headlights to LCI, expect a fault code being thrown by the LCM.

I hate error codes and new headlight assembly is also so darn expensive so I left mine alone.
The turn signals are much less expensive.

And how about the expense of painting your car orange for the video and than repainting back to Indy Red when it was done? HA HA HA - just kidding. Ah, the color shift from video cameras...The videos Gustav took of my car at the Welt had the same issue (mine looked too "green", yours too "orange").

Thanks for the video Dan.
