GVA headlight installer recommendation ?

so it is almost finally time to say byebye to my halogen lights. I bought a pair of OEM xenon headlights and just need to buy the parts and install

is there an installer someone can recommend me in GVA? i went to n-motion and they quoted me about $1000 for parts and labour. I know it requires rewiring and could be quite time consuming and complicated that is why its so expensive.

if anyone has knowledge of how or is willing to install, I will be willing to pay too!

thanks in advance guys!

it's pretty easy to physically install yourself. Remove the bumper and your pretty much there. As for the wiring, it will depend on lci or pre lci lights ahl/non ahl. It's not that hard. $1000 should be illegal. Someone can code it remotely too for a small fee. I can help you along a little if you give me more info.

What !! $1000 for the installation
I dealt with N-motion before on other things
Don't pay $1000 for the installation fee, please!!!
I know this friend he can install xeon for Benz and BWM, all European cars
he owns a shop by Oak and Marine Drive Vanc
he charges very reasonable rates but his shop is a bit dirty....
pm me if you are interested
I also done halo to xeon upgrade to 06 323i before
the wiring can be is a bit tricky if you've never done it before.

he is right,
N-motion is good for small tasks
when I retrofit mine, I print out the wiring diagram for the BMW export and
he still didn't understand how to splice the wires.
