PostSubject: Who's getting the new Union Jack LED lights?   28th February 2018, 21:43

Anyone else getting the new Union Jack rear LED lights for the F56? They are now available.

The dealer says only works if you have LED lights already and will show a bulb out sign
they say that error can't be coded out but I saw a German owner MINI on Instagram and she has managed to code the error out (with bimmer code or something)

They look really good in the flesh. Not sure how easy it is to take out the existing light units?

They cost around £299 delivered.

Would definitely be interested, but you say LED lights are required?

Are you aware of any way around this?

Definitely won't work as they are without LED fitments in your lights.
I guess a specialist car electrical person might be able to do something.

My car is going into BMW at the weekend for something, if that isn't expensive then I'm buying these.

The guy at Rybrook has been so helpful today

Purchased a mini from them once they were good then too

Hope they don't run out by the weekend

Only thing I don't like it the error message that will come up

If plug & play why would a message come up I'd assume it would just be like putting a replacement if you had one break.

Still it won't affect me as don't want any Smile

Rybrook say an error will come up as it's not a proper retro fit

This owner https://www.instagram.com/girlsprojekt managed to clear the error code/check control error so it can be done

How do you remove the light units what tools do you need?

I can't see how you would get the chrome trim off?

It's a German tuning company on Facebook, called Gigamot.

Also interesting that they offer two prices, one for just supply of the lights, and one including installation ... and coding. Think they may be ahead of the game compared to the British MINI dealers with regard to the warning light.

Yep I thought that too. At least it shows the light can go off. Somehow.
I've been messaging a German company who say they will send me the instructions on
Bimmercode (not that I have it) in a few weeks on how to clear the code.
A lot of British dealers (I contacted a load) didn't know or seem interested in helping me buy the lights.
Rybrook though have been very helpful (as usual).

Installation doesn't look too hard although knowing me will probably take all day!

I'll probably keep my existing lights until I sell the car just in case.
I think £266 is a good price I thought they may cost more.

Sorry Big Grin haha.

I have Bimmercode so if you can find out what needs coding, I can do it for you Very Happy

Thank you Ian!

I've ordered a T20 torx screwdriver too (to remove light unit) but think there is one
in the toolkit in the boot? (My MINIs in for a service I can't confirm this)

£266 from Rybrook seems like a fair price then I might message this Ash guy though
although I don't have a jcw lol

Rybrook have done a paid advert on Instagram so they must be having lots of interest
with these.

They’re obviously proving to be quite popular if the dealers are doing offers. Have you tried contacting James at Cotswold MINI over on tM? There’s an email address for them now under their forum over there Very Happy

I can't see his email am I being dumb? Was just about to order from Rybrook but now you mention Cotswold...

Update!!!!!!
="The price for a set of union jack rear lights would be £218.90 inc VAT and delivery to mainland UK.
The lights aren't an official retrofit but they should be a straight swap.
The lights would need to come from Germany so can take 5-10 working days to get here before we can send the lights out to yourself."
(This is an Email from Cotswold who replied to me within minutes!)

So obviously a LOT cheaper than other places

I've ordered mine!!! Now for a 10 day wait!
