Factory Top Case LED Light Bar Installation

Does anyone have the BMW instructions for installing this accessory LED light strip ? dealer wants 1/2 hour labor to install, I was trying to determine if I should just try to do it myself. TIA.

I don't, but it comes with the instructions and is pretty easy to do. I used the OEM unit, but If you search around the site, there are also instructions for adapting after market generics (much cheaper) or P3's (not so cheap but programable) for the same purpose.

Tucson, AZ and moving on.

It's very easy. To remove the little black round things get something small and push the center out. Take your time and don't force anything. Think of it as a puzzle.
I did mine without instructions.

PM sent with link to the installation instructions. As others have said, it's a real easy install.

I requested the add on when I bought the bike and they installed for free. For those of you who are yet to buy your bike, get them to do all of your installs for free when you purchase.
