Thanks heaps for the reply. $1100 for front and back OEM is a good price. I'm assuming ballasts came with the tail lights too? Good to see the install was easy. I think simple installs get complicated in some threads. You obviously have a mechanic background or are good with this kind of stuff? It'd be good to share some technical knowledge.

yeah the back lights came with everything needed. ballasts..etc. just plugged in. never installed lights on a car before. mechanically im average/poor. but i thought i would give it a shot. it was easy. common sense stuff. back lights drill 2 holes where the posts wont go in. mallet hammer so the light sits flush. if u do get them message me. ill walk ya through it.

It's kind of the same all across Australia really. With only 250 odd cars sold in our country there's not much chance you'll see another M5 very often.

It does feel a bit lonely at times haha. But hey it's an M5.
