Pre-LCI Halogen to LCI Non-AHL Xenon retrofit!!!

Ok, so ever since I got my E90 I was trying to get my halogen headlights replaced, I went through couple of aftermarker headlights and didn't like any of them even so famous Depo ones. Finally around a month ago I found a perfect pair of OEM LCI xenons from Europe, and off we go, I did some minor rewiring, I found out that European Xenons have a little different cable set up than in US, also coded VO to Xenon. I would like to thank this forum member JazaM3
(http://www.e90post.com/forums/member.php?u=159491)
and his Facebook search for 'Miami BMW Coding and Services'
for all his help, this guy is amazing. He helped me out with coding and further rewiring the lights to get it working perfectly. So after countless hours of trying to figure out the set up (tried using E90 DIYs but this wiring was different) we got it all working. And here are the pictures of the progress and the outcome!!!

And this is what I found inside!!!


I decided to switch up the AE to 6K HID bulbs, and now waiting for 8K ones...



this is the OEM color of AE


and this is my 6K AE upgrade





After coding VO


and this is after coding everything in, the final outcome, corner delete and I left 3 LEDs, looks awesome!!!


This is with headlights off, just AE



Lights on and blinker on



and corner lights on


No errors, and every function works, with the perfect cut- off pattern and brightness, also Bi-xenon High Beam is fully functional!!!




and the bi-xenon high beam


this is how bright the 6000K AE are when I drive up the wall

THANKS!
