Halogen Upgrade

Can anyone recommend a good shop in San Gabriel Valley that handles sales and installation for a headlight upgrade? I have a 2011 LCI 328 sedan with halogens and I want to see what my options are to get a cleaner/brighter look.

Do you want to go with an HID upgrade or with a whole new LCI assembly with the LED AE's.

HID upgrade relatively cheap, whole new assembly going to cost a pretty big penny.

HID upgrade. Is this something I can do myself or does it require a shop to do?

You can do yourself bro and save yourself some cash.

I've done a few cars already myself and it's not that difficult. It help to have a good clean garage space, good lighting, and patience.

You should also do matching fog's, really changes the look of the car.

I've done pre-lci HID retrofits, so I'm not sure if there are a lot of changes but I would rate it at a 4-5/10 difficulty level.

Best of luck bro.
