Do you have adaptive xenons?

If you don't, it's plug'n play. You only need to code the halogen beams off.

Theyre not adaptive, i assumed they would be plug and play. The xenons work fine however my halos go out after a minute or two, any idea as to what the problem may be? thanks

If you seem to have "halogen lenses" in your new LCI-headlights (inner lenses), then you have bought adaptive lci headlights and the halogen lenses are for turning light. These turning lights are attend to light only when you are turning from street corner etc. at dark.

You need to get these coded off, the headlight lenses will melt quicly if you don't do so.

Oh ok, ive gone through many forums and google searches but majority relate to going from Pre lci halogen to Lci xenon. Ive already coded out the rear lci light errors so ill have a go at coding the front. Do you know what i would need to code out by any chance? Thanks again

bi_xenon_bei_lh: nicht_aktiv -> aktiv
fl_aus_bei_bix_in_s_flc: nicht_aktiv -> aktiv
led_blinker_vorne: nicht_aktiv -> aktiv
led_blinker_hinten: nicht_aktiv -> aktiv

You also need to code led blinkers warm- and coldcheck to "nicht_aktiv".

Your inner lights/halogens are NOT to suppose to light at all in high beam if you have LCI-headlights, you only get bi-xenon in LCI for high beam.

If you have non-adaptive version of the LCI-headlights, you only have "black" lense (read empty) on inner reflector or if you have adaptive headlights you have halogen lense but it has a matt-white glass on it (this is for cornering-light). You don't have any "extra high beam" in LCI like you have in pre-lci.

You need to code these halogen-cornerlights to off or you will ruin your headlights because the inner lense doesn't stand a constant heat from the corner-light bulb. That's what this coding was for.

Hope this helps.

Pardon my ignorance, but its the angel eyes(halos/dims) that dont seem to light up. my xenons work fine, does that make any difference? should my angel eyes light up along with my xenons? I assumed going from xenon to xenon would be plug and play. my pre lci lights were xenon and the angel eyes worked fine along with the xenon.

AE:s are suppose to light with xenons. If they don't, can't help you there, sorry.

You need to check if the halogen bulbs (H8) are getting power with multimeter and go from there.
