Halogen to Xenon: What Do I need?

Pre-LCI 08 E90 with Halogens is what I have.

I want to go LCI Euro-spec Xenon's. Is this possible?

Yes, I figured that. I was thinking it would be around $2000. However, ECS is only selling PRE-LCI lights, no LCI...

Well my car IS a Pre-LCI. Those lights are the correct ones. But I want LCI ones because I think they look better.

Is there even a difference between the Euro and US spec LCI headlights?

"Please note these are NOT suitable for your car when halogen headlamps are fitted as the wiring and levelling systems differ"

Just noticed you have halogens, so this probably won't work...

My understanding is that you can't just buy the lights and do plug-n-play. You have couple of other modules to buy and computer has to be coded for it. So lights + about $500....
