I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

 

the footwell module cost appox £270 plus 1 to 2 hours of labour to replace.

 

this module controls ALL lights on the car, so yes it is related to the reverse lights and all other lights.

Thankyou , I was expecting that answer, just not the cost of doing it.
Would this have to be done by a main dealer

yes, it would have to be done by a main dealer or a BMW specialist garage with programming equipment.
